Jan-27-23  Sally Simpson: Anand v nine Soviet players. Anand won. Then the Soviet empire collapsed...coincidence?

No. This historic victory sealed the Soviet demise. After this result they just gave up. Anand's place in world politics and his role in pulling down the iron curtain has been overlooked.

I was going to suggest we backdate a 1992 Noble prize and give it too Anand but that went to a Fischer! (not Bobby Fischer but Edmond Fischer who lived to be 101. )

  perfidious: <Geoff>, this merely points up Anand's greatness in yet another way.

  fredthebear: Anand's victory over second place Kasparov was Garry's only defeat of the tournament. The Soviets' propensity for drawing one another came back to bite them.

That remarkable Fischer fellow was not only outstanding in his field, but he lived to be 101, outliving two wives!
