  ChessHigherCat: Dominguez let Anand take a pawn (16...Bxa2) in exchange for an attack that was just a little too slow, Anand defended very well and got a draw. I think white's attack would have been faster with 18. gxf6 instead of Rdg1:

17. g5 Be6 18. gxf6! Qxf6 (if 18..gxf6 19. Nh6+!) 19. Bg5 Qf7 20. N3h4

Now, if 20....h6 21. Bxh6 Bxf5 22. Nxf5 Nf4 23. Qg4 and black is on the ropes.

if 20. ...Nxh4 21. Nxh4 h6 22. Bxh6 gxh6 23. Ng6 Kh7 24. Nxe5 Qf6 25. d4 Bd6 26. Ng4 Qf4 27. e5 Be7 28. Rhg1 Rg8 29. Rg3 Bh4 30. Rf3 Bxg4 31. hxg4 Qxg4 32. Qd3+ Kh8 33. Rf7 Rg7 34. e6 Qxe6 35. Rxg7 Kxg7 36. Rg1+ Kh8 37. Rg6 wins for white
