Nov-29-03  PinkPanther: What?! 1-0? That makes no sense whatsoever. How about the continuation 26. Qxh6 Qxd1+ 27. Bxd1 Rxd1#. Am I overlooking something, or is there just some sort of problem on the scoresheet or what?
Premium Chessgames Member There seem to be a lot of moves in this game that don't make any sense.

  technical draw: Yeah, like how about white not taking Queen and then Black missing a mate in two??
Nov-29-03  Reisswolf: This had to be some kind of a lightning game. There is no way that grandmasters of their calibre can miss such obvious moves.
Nov-29-03  Kaspablanca: I think pinkpanther is right.It must be a technical problem with the scoresheet.

  Honza Cervenka: More reasonable and probably correct gamescore of the game from Buenos Aires thematic Sicilian tournament is Anand vs Judit Polgar, 1994
Dec-02-03  chessworshipper: see gelfans vs anand;0-1;1993 for a crystalline example of anand's genius dont miss it.
Dec-02-03  chessworshipper: i meant gelfand of course...sorry i dont know how to put the game as a link like honza above..if someone could tell me then perhaps next time....:)

Jan-08-05  pointguard: chances are that this game was on a 5-minute timed pace. and the clock is notorious for lowering a chessplayer's abilities
Jan-08-05  bishopmate: I don't get this... how is it 1-0?... even the worst beginner could figure the mate in two out? what happened?

  paulalbert: This score sheet bears no resemblance to the actual game at Buenos Aires which went for 42 moves.Paul Albert

0 - 1
Same opening, same colors, same country. Judit made an issue as White and was severely punished for castling to the Queenside. Her K-attack was stopped 'stone cold' before any real firework flashed. Vishy Anand cautiously put out all the fire on his Kingside, then launched his own deadly counterattack on the Q-side against Judit's unsafe king (comment by Susan Polgar in her weblog).
Sep-29-05  AdrianP: <Ferdyrojo> <Same opening> Huh? This is a Sicilian - (unsurprisingly given that it was a Sicilian thematic tournament). Yesterday's game was a Caro-Kann.
May-31-12  screwdriver: The moves make no sense. Please remove this from the database as soon as possible. TIA
Dec-25-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: Seen JUDIT faces, one understand why there's so many games of ANAND with her... she's very pretty! Maybe, ANAND had make a bet of "1 million" to her, if she beats him! Thuis of course, will never happen... very very smart guy!!! lgs
Dec-25-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: Love... love... love... I'm sure this game ended with a kiss! She didn't want to win, don't you understand folks?
