  plang: What a battle! Anand's counterattack with ..17 Ng6 and ..18 Nh4 is refuted by Karpovs cool defense with 19 Bf4. Then, in desperation, Anand sacrifices a piece with ..22 Ne3 which Karpov should have accepted. When Karpov misses this and then plays 24 Nc6? his winning chances are gone. At this point in his career Karpov was not as dependable at winning won games as he was when he was in his prime.
Jul-29-15  ToTheDeath: Great bluff by Anand to confuse the issue. 24.a5! was also winning.

"After the game I asked Karpov if he wanted to analyze and he said: "There is nothing to analyze. White was completely winning." -Anand
