Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-28-05  Chess Addict: 28. e5!?, if the Queen takes a series of exchanges will win White a Rook.
Oct-28-05  Nezhmetdinov: a beautiful game in all its phases
Oct-28-05  Kangaroo: <<Chess Addict>: 28. e5!?, if the Queen takes a series of exchanges will win White a Rook.>

Perhaps, you meant the continuation:
<28. e5!? Qxe5 29. Bxf4 Qxf4 30. Bxf7+? Qxf7 31. Rxd7> and the black queen is pinned.

However, <30 ... Rxf7> would destroy your plan!

Instead of <30. Bxf7+?> white can make <30. Rf3> concentrating on the <f7> pawn.

I don't think this would have been worse than what happened to Black. Together with other pieces, the white e-pawn is joining the attack on <f7>.

Feb-17-06  euripides: 28 <e5 Qxe5> 29 Bxf7+ Rxf7 30 Rd8+ Kh7 31 Qxf7 looks decisive e.g. 31...g5 32 g3 and if the knight moves Qg8 will be mate. This may have been what <chessadict> had in mind.
Nov-23-08  hedgeh0g: An incredible number of decoy pawn sacrifices by Kasparov in this game. The fact that Anand had a lot of loose pieces enabled Kasparov to push the e-pawn with minimal protection!

  morfishine: Anand must've been dizzy at the end of this game
May-24-15  mruknowwho: A lot of bishop of opposite color endgames end in draws. Not this one, though the remaining rooks may have had something to do with that.
May-24-15  falso contacto: Very nice game of the day with very few comments so far.
May-24-15  newzild: A tremendous fight!
