  Mateo: 40...Qxf3! is not so difficult to find, but Anand was only 15 years old... 41.Rxc8 Qf1+ <42.Kh2 Ng4 mate>.
Oct-03-07  Shams: I suppose on 16.Rc6 or 18.Rc6 black plays ...b5<?>
Oct-03-07  aktajha: <mateo> 15 is kind of old enough to spot lots of tactics; not really an infant anymore.

More interesting is the patience Anand shows at this age.

Mar-26-11  harish22: This was the game that made Anand at the world stage. He was a 14 year old IM who had just beaten a GM in less than 30 minutes. He was the highest scorer of the indian teams scoring 7.5 or 7 out of the 11 games he played.
