Jul-21-04  themindset: why isn't this game listed as B14, panov-botvinnik attack ?
Jul-21-04  themindset: also, the final is strange, was it time pressure? because it seems totally equal after the exchanges are done, i even anylised with Crafty to a depth of 16, listing it as -0.02

does anyone have any info or analysis on this game?

Jul-21-04  tayer: The position for Anand after 36. ... ♖xe7 37. ♕xe7+ ♕xe7 38. ♗xe7 ♔xe7 39. ♔f1 seems hopeless. Kasparov will soon have 3 passed ♙s, which cannot be stoped, while Anand’s 2 passed ♙s will be blocked by white’s ♔
Jul-21-04  sneaky pete: <themindset> Anand resigned because the pawn ending is clearly lost. The separated passed pawns h5 and e5 (after g4 .. h5 .. f4 .. and f5 ..) are too much for the black king, whereas the connected black passed pawns can be easily contained. Give the 6 half moves from <tayer>'s post to your friend Crafty and he too will see the light.
Nov-27-05  acirce: 19.Bd3! is a nice pawn sac. Watson points out that after 25.Re3 White has once again 'cut the board in two', kind of a Kasparov speciality.
Nov-27-05  KingG: Very nice game.

Kasparov himself thinks that 15. ♗d3 b6 16. cxb6 axb6 17. ♗b1:

is better than his pawn sac. Btw the move that he likes the most is the prophylactic 13. ♖c1.

Oct-11-09  Oliphaunt: 13.Rc1 is one of those 'mysterious rook moves'. It's an excellent move "simply" because it prevents 13...b6 which would liberate black's game. Kasparov gives:

13....b6 14.c4 dxc4 15.Bxc4 bxc5 16.dxc5 Bxc5 17.Bb5 Qe7 (17...Qb6 18.Qxd7 Qxb5 19.a4 Qb6 20.Bc7 [white's winning]) 18.Qc2 Nd4 19.Qxc5 Qxc5 20.Rxc5 Nxb5 21.a4 Na3 22.Rc3 [and the knight is trapped].

Jul-29-12  Juninho: an improvement:

13. ..., Ne5

Mar-06-20  Howard: Kasparov's 13.Rc1! is discussed in the latest issue of "Chess" (based out of London).
