  plang: ..9 g5 was first played by Anand in his 1995 match with Kasparov. He obtained a draw with little difficulty. ..11 O-O seems suicidal; I doubt that was part of Anands idea. One of blacks "issues" in this line is the bishop buried at a6. It never gets into the game here and blacks kingside white square weaknesses lead to a rout after 13 Qh5 and 15 Kd1.
May-02-08  ToTheDeath: A typical "psychic murder" by Kasparov, as he wins entirely by home preparation against a usual victim. Garry's huge plus score against Nikolic is impressive even for him.
