Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-07-18  Ulhumbrus: The sudden drop in the computer evaluation for White after 26 h4?? suggests that it is a losing blunder and Black's reply 26...Ne5! threatens to trap White's queen by 27...Ng4 after which White has to lose at least a pawn in order to save his queen.

  pdxjjb: After the fireworks, though, Vishy was still ahead just a single pawn. It would have been a long hard endgame against a super-GM in a good frame of mind. But Karjakin was probably kicking himself for h4 and his 32 h5 loses a second pawn with no compensation that I can see. This game could be titled "How not to attack along the h-file."
Jun-09-18  John Abraham: interesting game
Jun-09-18  anandrulez: When I checked this game (round about Ng5), it was winning for White. Anand's play was unstable in this tournament.
