  plang: Seirawan criticized 17..c5 with weakening the queenside too much. He recommended 17..Rfd8 instead. It is remarkable how quickly Nicolic wins the knight endgame after 29..Nd8. White's space advantage on the kingside makes it much easier for white to centralize his king. Although Anand has no obvious weaknesses his queenside pawns can be attacked; particularly after 33..b5 which seems to be a significant error. 34 Nc7 and 35 Na6, feezing blacks queenside, is a really impressive maneuver. Black appears to be lost after that.
