Jan-01-06  sheaf: after 29 Qd2 white does seem to have drawing chances I dont really know where she lost it. 47..Bd4 48.Qd5 looks like a mistake to me, maybe 48.Qd6 was better. Anyway black certainly has advantage even at this point not sure if it is winning
Dec-25-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: Take a good look at Zuszsa... The Polgar sisters (maybe) are quite interested in ANAND chess... lgs
Dec-25-12  Jason Frost: <KAB> I have no idea what you mean, why wouldn't everyone be interested in 'Anand chess'?

The final mistake here clearly looks like 48.Qd5? After 48.Qd6 Rd3 49.Kg2, it looks like at least a draw if not preferable for white. Also of note that this game was played blind, and I think Qd5 would certainly not have been played in a real game.

Dec-25-12  waustad: Yes, Amber games were played blind and, if I recall correctly with something like the 20m + 20s increment like at the mind games. This makes for exciting chess, but not extremely accurate chess.
