Mar-17-04  lazarus: In my chessdatabase I found this game
with comments by Vishy Anand. After
18...0-0! he considered the position as
winning(-+). Very probably he is right but wasn t 19.Nd3 a mistake? I believe that after 19.Ke3 the White
still have chances to draw the game
e.g.:
1)19...e5 20.g3 Bg4 21.Nd3(controls b2) Rac8 22.c5 Be2: 23.Ke2: Bd4 24.Bh3

2)19...a5 20.Nd4 Bd4: 21. Kd4: with good compensation for the material

Mar-19-04  Cyphelium: On 19. Ke3, I think I'd played 19.- f5.
Jul-27-04  chesscookie: This is such an awesome game.
Dec-23-04  GreenDayGuy: This game was total ownage all the way. Gelfand was completely destroyed.
Dec-28-04  Granite: The reason that no Nobel prize for mathamatics was given is because their was already a very prestigious award for math at the time the Nobel prize was established and Nobel didn't feel it neccesary to encrouch upon the prestige of that award. Several years later that award was disolved, and the Fields medal arose in it's place. Nobel prizes are somewhat common, while a Fields medal is extremely rare being awarded once every 4 years instead of annually, and moreso math is a harder subject.
Dec-28-04  maoam: That's a far more plausible explanation. It's difficult to believe that Nobel discounted mathematics because a prize would have been awarded to Mittag-Leffler (when it would certainly have gone to Poincare).
Feb-10-05  chesscookie: Nice Homework by Vishy. I wonder how these GMs think up these combinations..I mean, i can look at a board but I could never come up with stuff like this.
Apr-15-05  glorious defeat: lazarus is right. 19.Ke3 and white is ok
May-27-05  your brilliance: <Granite><moreso math is a harder subject> If you can prove that, I am sure you will win a Fields medal.
Oct-11-05  seeminor: 11...g6!! by anand is tremendously calm. He simply tells white he can beat him with one piece less, and he doesnt need it back!
Nov-22-05  tintin: Gotta love the Linares variation, or any variation of the QGA. I win with it all the time as black! Most people i play in tournaments (probably at a lower level than most), don't know what to do, or else just the basics, so i can easily get equality, sometimes even an advantage.
Nov-22-05  tintin: <Larsker> i am quite a bit late, but that book you refer to is one of the best game collections i have ever read! I recommend it to everyone.
Apr-11-08  sheaf: incidentally this is anands first win over gelfand.. must have been very hard to believe the kind of monster anand would become in the years to come...
Oct-27-08  dwavechess: 32/40 moves concur Rybka 3 w32 at 3 min. per move for anand.
Mar-07-09  shahjinan: < sheaf: incidentally this is anands first win over gelfand.. must have been very hard to believe the kind of monster anand would become in the years to come...>..after seeing this win, it can be guessed I guess:D

  Check It Out: I like how Anand calmly fianchettoes his bishop with the queenside on fire.
Jul-21-13  BlackFront: And on it goes, another mediocre pun. I've got loads better than this!
Jul-21-13  Snehalshekatkar: This game is simply AMAZING!!

  HeMateMe: We need to see some stuff like this in the Carlsen match.
Jul-21-13  gauer: 7 Bd2 was seen earlier in the tournament, but this round produced both 7 a4 (as in Beliavsky vs Kamsky, 1993 0-1) and this game's repeat of 7 e5. Seems a bit reminiscent of Argentine variation of the Sicilian vespers, and makes one wonder which of those two continuations was played first, by the time the other guy played his 7th move reply.
Jul-21-13  Doniez: Great game by Anand. I was staring at the chess board after move 14, and Anand was 1 piece down. But the following combination, winning the rook, is simply amazing!
