Jun-03-05  lopium: It's a nice game with a great end.
Jun-03-05  fgh: Such a boring game. Anand is a real drawmaster.
Jun-04-05  lopium: In this case if Anand would have played for a draw, He wouldn't have win. I don't know if he is a drawmaster, but he has ever won some games, at least. I like this game.
Jun-04-05  acirce: Yes, Anand has won some games.
Jun-04-05  roni.chessman: Uh yeah, Anand has won A lot of game...

Jun-04-05  fgh: Lol <acirce>.

Of course I don't dislike this game, but most of the moves by white in it are prettty simple. And don't forget that Anand seems to be playing many Petrov's actually.

  plang: Not an entirely successful opening for white; after 12 h4 a position from the English Attack of the Najdorf with white having lost a tempo (Bg5 and Be3). Although Anand was somewhat critical of 17..Ng3 he felt black still would have been OK if followed up with 18..Ne2. He was also critical of 20..Qf1+, preferring 20..Qc7. After that black is lost.
