Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-04  patzer2: I haven't computer validated, but Anand appears to have a winning attack against the castled White king position with 52...Bxf3! Notice how 51...Nh7!? facilitates Anand's plan.
Nov-21-04  patzer2: Notice how the clearance move 56...d4! frees up d5 for the Black Queen to dominate the a8-h1 diagonal. This is a good example of using a simple tactic to gain a decisive positional advantage.
Nov-30-04  Pawn Ambush: Gurevich's Pieces never made it across the six rank,didn't seem like he was trying to win this game.
