Anand's Novelties!
Compiled by hitman84
--*--

Roughly, a new move in the opening is referred to as a "novelty" or "theoretical novelty".

The games are in order as they appear in the book Sohovski Informator 79 in the column titled "The Best of Chess Informant Viswanathan Anand" - "The Most Important Theoritical Novelties"

If you are an informator fanatic please feel free to share his best novelties after 2000 which might have appeared in editions after no.79
