Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-30-17  JPi: A great technic here vs a very strong GM. Looking at the position around move 10. White is playing with the first move. 12...c6 Only Rf8 differs to white rook already on e1; on move 14 it's only d4 for black pawn still on d6. Then 20 moves latter Black is nearly winning. Going for the Queen side pawns majority by Re6-Re8-Reb8 impress me a lot.
Oct-01-17  Ulhumbrus: With 28...Qc8! at a single stroke Anand deprives White's doubled rooks on the e file of all of their targets

This game suggests that if Anand and other GMs have been making a study of Carlsen's games and have been learning from them, the players who have not are in trouble.

Oct-01-17  rahulthemoron: Ulhumbrus, although all GMs study each other's games obsessively, Anand was world number 2 when Carlsen was wetting his bed - Carlsen owes a lot more to Anand in terms of learning from his games than vice versa.
Oct-01-17  waustad: As much as I like both, he has a point.
Nov-23-17  Dhiky: Ulhumbrus.. the object is not only to defer the attacks of rooks.. but to attack the b2 pawn and capture it.. understood.. before analysing anyone's match better you analyse with patience.. don't comment on vishy's caliber.. He was a world champion.. better u shut ur mouth and improve yourself first....
Nov-23-17  Dhiky: The strategy to capture the b2 pawn started right with 23.b5! Move by black..
