  tpstar: <CLMM> 1) Why not 20 ... Nxb4 instead? 2) Why not 28 ... e4 instead? 3) Why not 31 ... Nxb4 and Black has 3 Pawns for the piece?
May-26-04  Drstrangelove: Tried to get cute with the pawn fork and got totally outplayed, nice job by Anand. Is he going to be in any other ternys this year?
Jun-14-04  Cyphelium: <tpstar> 1) 20.- Nxb4 21. Bd2 Qc5 22. Qb3 loses a piece.

2) 28.- e4 29. Bxe4 fxe4 30. Rxe4 carries some punch. 30.- Bb6 31. Qf6 Bf5 32. Rxe8+ Rxe8 33. Rxa6 Bxc2 34. Rxb6 loses. Black's best might be 30. Be7, but then 31. Rxe7 looks like a promising exchange sac: 31.- Rxe7 32. Qf6 Rf7 33. Qxd6 Rxc2 34. Rxa6 threatening Rb6 (nice to have c1 under control too!). Also after 32.- Rae8 33. Qxd6 Nc7 34. Ne3 white seems to have good compensation.

3) 31.- Nxb4 loses to 32. Bxb5.

Jun-30-07  tal lover: Probably Milos overlooked the in between move 27.Bh6!! when he played the move 25...Nxe4, he probably saw a line like this:25...Nxe4 26.Bxe4 f5 27.Bd3 e4 28.Bxe4 fxe4 29.Rxe4 Rxc2 winning a piece, but Anand saw Milos plan and played the fantastic move 27.Bh6, now to recapture the piece, Milos should defend the f6 square (if he doesnt defend the f6 square, after fxe4, Qf6 and the mate is near) and now if Milos try 28...e4 he can be mated with 29.Bxe4 fxe4 30.Rxe4 and the point is that if 30...Rxe4 then 31.Qf8# and if he tries 30...Rxc2 then31.Rxe8 Bxe8 32.Qf8#. Anyone of us and many professional players probably after Milos played 25.Nxe4 would lose the knight on c2, but Anand with this very good move 27.Bh6!! makes that Milos lose a piece.

Oct-12-07  tal lover: There is no win right now, but Anand is a piece up, i think its the right decision to resign
