Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-23-08  SetNoEscapeOn: Up two points after four games, tied at 7, and -2 at 10... Anand really collapsed in this match.
Sep-23-08  VaselineTopLove: I believe there was some disturbance caused by Kamsky's father Rustam, that got Anand distracted...what's the inside scoop on this?
Feb-13-11  fixingguru: on move 28 white missed a good chance to activate the knight.

instead of 28.Ne1 as played 28.Nd4 seems better to me.

the last chance for Anand to save the game was IMO on move 52.

52.Rg8 is not good. the right idea was to attack the e5 pawn with 52.Nh4 and then 52...Re3 53.Ng6 Kd4

and now since black has the wrong bishop 54.Re5 is possible.
