  plang: This line seems to lead to almost immediate equality for black. 9 Rd1 was new although it doesn't seem to offer white much more than the previously played 9 Bg5. 10 Nc3?..Bc2! would have lost material for white. 11 f3?..Nb6 12 Qb3..Bxb1 13 Rxb1..Nfd7! is another example of how white could have gone wrong. Ljubojevic spent only 5 seconds on 14 d5?. After 14 Nf3 white would have been in little danger of losing. For the game Ljubojevic spent 30 minutes to Anand's hour and a half. Perhaps Ljubojevic overlooked 19..Qe8 (20 bxc..Rd8 wins material for black). Although Ljubojevic had won his pawn back his pieces were not as well coordinated as Anands. 22 Qd7? would have been answered by 22..Qf3 winning immediately. Anand's technique made the end of the game look deceptively easy.
