Feb-29-04  bumpmobile: The mighty Vishy walked into a trap.
That's mighty fishy he played like crap

(it's really late and I'm a little punchy)

Feb-29-04  Reisswolf: <The mighty Vishy walked into a trap. That's mighty fishy he played like crap>

Yet, a strapping lad then he was though,
Now we'll see such play no more.

Feb-29-04  vishyanand: with enormous confidence he now does pout
he's difficult to beat, dou you doubt?
Feb-29-04  Benjamin Lau: This was back in 1984, when Anand wasn't the Lighning Kid yet, he was just Anand. It was also the first time he played the Kan so who can blame him for 5...Nc6?! which is not a respectable line in the opening.
Mar-24-04  HailM0rphy: I don't think I've ever seen a queen trap as spread as that before...
Jun-28-06  avemuri57: I don't get it, why couldn't Vishy just play 27...c5 28 RXQ Nf4+ 29 Kg1 NxR+ Kf4 Rf8.... trapping whites queen?
Jun-30-06  Cyphelium: <avemuri57> After 27.- c5 28. ♖xh3 ♘f4+, white doesn't have to play 29. ♔g1. Instead, 29. ♘f3 looks like an easy win.
Sep-22-11  Thecheesykid: Could have been a way out with Rf8 attacking the white queen, he would have moved to Qg7 (no other safe square really), then he would have needed to do Qe6. Safe for now. This move would also attack the white knight and put his queen in a decent defensive position.
