Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-04  Nezhmetdinov: Anand's play throughout this tournament reminds me of Capablanca or Petrosian at his least lazy - the glossy clarity of his play, the way in which each victory seems entirely logical - really beautiful chess from a great player at the top of his game. Which player from history reminds one most of Anand? I say Keres.
