Mar-13-07  sheaf: no kibitz on this game !! nice shot Rxd4!..
Feb-29-08  VaselineTopLove: 31. Qf4!

Instead, had Anand played the obvious looking 31. Rd1??

then 31. ...Bxf3

32. Rxd6 Ra1+ followed by mate

Aug-25-14  mchinitz: Hi,

The sack looks interesting. I'm confused why Black doesn't do 19... Rd8 (20. Qxf6 Qe5 or 20. Qxb4 Rb5)? Houdini even gives advantage to Black?
