  tpstar: Anand takes a very non-descript line of the Ruy Lopez Opening Explorer and trades minor pieces to weaken Black's Pawn structure in a QBRR vs QBRR situation, then 19. Qh5 was a powerful move attacking the Pb5 laterally plus the weak light squares. 24. Qg4 did not give Black time to recapture on b5 due to 24 ... Qxb5?/cxb5? 25. Qe6+ Rf7 26. Ra8+ Bf8 27. Bxd6, and 27. bxc6 did not give Black time to capture on c6 due to the weak back rank, leading to 27 ... h6 28. c7 and White won.
