Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-11  Salaskan: Anand makes defending against the Stonewall look quite easy, simply placing a knight on f8 and then kicking white out of e5 with f6, followed by a central takeover. Well-played.
Jun-24-11  grasser: It looks live Anand tried to repeat at move 27.

  Everett: <Whiteshark> that is a nice find, thank you for that. My hunch was that your suggested move works because it vacates h5 for the Q, but one would need to see <30.h6 Bxh6 31.c4> followed by a knight hop to allow White to infiltrate.

I think <30.Qg4> might win as well, as even the solid defense <30..Rg8 31.Nh8!> seems to be big trouble for Black.

  Everett: Yusupov vs T Markowski, 2001 Yusupov plays it differently yet gets another promising position.
