Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-04  Theoryhack: An amazing stream of little (and not so little) tactics
Nov-08-04  WMD: Yes, very nice game by Vishy. 18.exf5? Nd4 19.Qe4 gxf5 20.Qxb7 Rb8 21.Rxe5 Rxb7 22.Rxe8+ Qxe8 23.Bxb7 Qe1+ 24.Kg2 Qxc3 .

34.Kh2 is the fatal tactical error. 34.Qe3 Qxe3 35.Nxe3 should be a draw.

May-05-09  MrMelad: Tactical fest!! Anand at his best, so many great moves I don't know where to start, 17..Ne6!, 21..Rxb2!, 24..Ng4!, 27..Qa1+! with the resource 29..Qa3!, the amazing and counter intuitive 31..d5!!, 34..Nxd5!, 40..Nxb4! and more!

This game is from the Morphy collection.

Jul-03-16  Finnishplayer: Great game by Anand.
Mar-12-20  fisayo123: A young Anand is probably the best player ever at navigating murky , unorthodox complex positions.
