Jun-19-06  Chess Classics: I think I recall reading in an old column of Pal Benkos that when both sides have opposite colored bishops and rooks that the ending isn't neccessarily drawish (but of course if either pair of pieces are exchanged then the odds of drawing go way up.)

BTW, how old would Vishy be when this game was played? I have an informant from 1984 and I looked him up, we was rated U2400. When was his "big break"?

  Ron: <Chess Classics> From posting on Salov to now posting on Anand, maybe we should call you Anandzilla.

I tend to agree with Benko's comment.

Anand was born in 1969 so he was around 15 when he played this game.

  Wilson: Initially I thought 20.Nd5 was the losing move because the white bishop eventually gets trapped on the back rank causing chaos for white. However, instead of Re4 which seems a wasted move, if he plays the simple c3 I think white has won the advantage but it is much smaller. White may even still have an attack.
