Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-11  SetNoEscapeOn: 28...Qa7! Super alert technique by Anand.
Apr-10-11  DarthStapler: Anand is a genius
Apr-10-11  haydn20: Thanks for finding this interesting game. Fritz rates 23. Rxf6 as very weak, preferring 23. Qxe5 Qc5+ 24. Qxc5 Rxc5 25. Na4 Bxe2 26. Nxc5 Bxf1 27. Rxf1 . I'm not qualified to judge, but maybe someone has an informed opinion. On my own, I came up with 26....Qb2, which seems stronger than the game, but again: I don't know.
Apr-10-11  PSC: <haydn20: Fritz rates...> Download Stockfish, much stronger than Fritz, although it totally agrees with Fritz's line and also likes your 26...Qb2 :-)
