Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-19-04  vishya: very nice and logical attack by vishy
Feb-19-04  vishya: where is the win though?!
Feb-19-04  Catfriend: Where isn't it? What would you do against the coming e6?
Mar-31-04  OktHorse: Yes vishya, as cat so cooly put it ... e6.
May-21-05  schnarre: Crunch!
Nov-22-05  dramas79: <Where isn't it? What would you do against the coming e6?> Cant black play 27...Qe7? I cannot see an immediate win.
Nov-22-05  Mostolesdude: 27...Qe7 28. Qc6 29... Qd8 30 e6. 31 fxe6... 32. Qxe6+ and black is pretty much done.

27...Qe7 28.Qc6 29...Qd8 30 e6. 31...f6
32 Kf7 and the black pawn at d5 will fall soon

Jan-13-06  schnarre: Black is finished (again)!

  Mateo: <Mostolesdude> <27...Qe7 28.Qc6 29...Qd8 30 e6. 31...f6 32 Kf7 and the black pawn at d5 will fall soon>. I guess you meant 32.Nf7. That wins but 32.Qd7! winning too seems even stronger.
Dec-20-08  whiteshark: Yes, ...Qe7 should have been played a bit earlier on move 16, e.g. (16...Qe7) <17.Rhc1 0-0 18.Kf1 Rfe8 19.Kg1 Nf8 >

  PawnSac: Mateo: <That wins but 32.Qd7! winning too seems even stronger.>

It wins outright!
If black trades queens he can't stop the passer.
If ..Qe7? QxN and
if ..Qf8 (the only square left to guard the knight) then Qh7 mate

Mar-11-20  fisayo123: Apparently , according to Gregory Serper's recent column on , Anand spent just 15 minutes on this entire game.

  perfidious: Anand was renowned for his great speed of play in his early days, a habit which got him in hot water now and again.
Mar-11-20  jith1207: <perfidious: Anand was renowned for his great speed of play>

That would've been abnormal in classic Chess, either back in those days or now. Would've looked Suicidal, or over confident, or just too good to be true.

  moronovich: Anand was called The Lightning Kid,back in the these days.
Mar-11-20  jith1207: Vlastimil Hort wrote in Chess Base the following:

<<<As a junior, Vishy Anand played incredibly fast and brought his opponents again and again into time-trouble. Today, Leonid Stein is less known than the former world champion, but he was also famous for his fast and quick play. The Ukrainian master already showed his talent and his speed when he was just ten years old and in serious tournament games he often (and in contrast to his more contemplative opponents) used only 20 minutes of his thinking time!>>>

  perfidious: An droll tale from the link posted by <jith1207>, narrated by Vlastimil Hort:

<.....I witnessed the following scene that took place at the pool of the hotel. (Eduard) Gufeld, quite tipsy, and with two bottles of Crimean champagne under his arm and a couple of cans with Russian caviar in his pocket, felt very much at ease with everything and the world. Swaying slightly he approached the next best person at the pool. It was Viktor Korchnoi. "Viktor Lvovich, now we are finally colleagues. Can I invite you to a little drink?" Korchnoi's devastating answer came quick like a shot: "We two, colleagues? Never! You can call Mato Damjanovic colleague, but not me!">

Mar-11-20  Retireborn: <perfidious> One wonders why Viktor happened to have Mato Damjanovic in his head at that particular moment. Could be a running joke?
Mar-11-20  jith1207: <"We two, colleagues? Never! You can call Mato Damjanovic colleague, but not me!">
