Sep-01-06  AbhinavAsthana: Indeeed a great performance by vishy.
Jul-15-07  chanakyan: i AM THE FIRST KIBITZER HAHA HIHI HOHO HUHU
Mar-05-08  Telmo Escobar: It's a good positional game, but not particularly brilliant. Maybe Vishy remembers this game for personal reasons.
Aug-02-08  firefly3: I was first surprised after 30... Kf7, giving up the b7 pawn, but perhaps it is necessary. e.g.

30... Rc7 31. b6 Re7 31. c5 Kf8 32. c6 bc 33. Rxc6 Ke8 34. Rc8+ Kf7 35. Rc7

or

30... Rc7 31. b6 Re7 31. c5 e4 32. c6 bc 33. Rxc6 e3 34. fe fe 35. Rc7! Kf7 (35... Kf8? 36. b7!) 36. Kc2! e2 37. Rxe7+ Kxe7 38. Kd2 Kd7 with a won king and pawn endgame for white.

Aug-26-10  divakaranmanoj78: This game should have been lost by anand if Inkiov played 26th move Bxf2 instead of Bxd6. I have researched it. Anyone deny.

  Sastre: How can Black win after 26...Bxf2 27.Rxb7? White appears to be winning.
Aug-05-12  Gru: White has to be better after:
26 ... Bxf2 27 Rxb7 Rd8 28. Rb8 Rxb8 29. Bxb8

Bc7 will follow with threats of b6 and Bxa5. If 29... Bb6 to prevent it then 30. Bd6 Kf7 31. c5 looks strong

It's the first game in his book of games. He considers winning the World Junior to be an early milestone in his career.

Anand denies:<White also wins after 26...Bxf2 27 Rxb7 Rd8 28 Rb8! (not 28 c5? Bxc5 29 Bxc5 Rc8) 28...Rxb8 29 Bxb8 Kf7 30 Bc7 and the threat of 31 b6 forces Black to approach with his king, whereupon 31 Bxa5 gives White an overwhelming mass of passed pawns.>
