Feb-18-04  Hinchliffe: 11......kt x g4 I know there has got to be a very good reason for not doing so but could someone kindly explain it to me please.
Feb-18-04  CapAnson: A common theme is to sac the g pawn, gaining the open file for white's pieces.. black didn't want to allow this..
Feb-18-04  Hinchliffe: Thanks CapAnson I thought that the answer lay somewhere in creating an open(ish) file for the rook. Appreciate your time and comment.
May-18-04  Whitehat1963: Nice finish.
Nov-08-04  Theoryhack: Its not even a sac; Nxg4 Qg3 Nf6 Qxg7 gets the pawn back. Black will have to castle queenside and that doesnt bode well for a sicilian player. This was the point of playing g4 early; if any OOO instead Black gets to OO and W would then have to prepare g4 with Rg1. Here he gets to miss out Rg1.
Dec-22-04  aw1988: A model way of playing the Kan as white.
May-20-05  halcyonteam: g4 attacks early, risky too!
Nov-29-06  outplayer: 22.g6 Kxg6 and is there a forced win for white?
Nov-29-06  Karpova: <outplayer: 22.g6 Kxg6 and is there a forced win for white?>

22.g6+ Kxg6 23.Qd3+ f5 24.exf6+ Kh6 25.Qh3+ Kg6 26.Qg4+ Kh7 27.Qh5+ Kg8 28.f7+ Rxf7 29.Qxf7+ Kh8 30.Rf4 and the mating threat is too strong

  kamalakanta: Anand was 18 years old when he played this game! Wow!

I love his elastic treatment of modern positions...his centre is always taken care of...

Aug-12-17  jith1207: Black's Rd move before g6 seems to have been a mistake.

Had this game ever been a GOTD / POTD?
