  plang: The sharpest line is 11 f5..e5 12 Ne6 though Anand felt that black can defend adequately against whites dangerous attack. 13 e5 had been played previously but seems counter to the main strategic idea of pressure against e6. Anand felt that whites offside knight and weakened kingside ensured a clear advantage for black. Lautier rarely plays 1 e4 and may have chosen this sharp line to try and catch Anand off balance but after Anands exchange sacrifice 16..Qxb8 black had used only 7 minutes on his clock. Lautiers game went downhill quickly after that.
Nov-29-07  Shams: interesting. black trades his very useful DSB for that "offside knight" several moves later. I don't understand this game.
