Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-05  TheSlid: 23.Ne6 seems to lead to White's problems in this game, although retreat to f3 would not have been exactly cavalier, maybe this would be better?
Mar-27-05  rags: The problem was 25 Bb2 leading to 25.. Ba3! and rest was forced giving black the advantage of queen and 3 pawns for rook, bishop and knight. I guess 25 d5 would have been better for white. Anand is quick to spot these tactical opportunities.
Mar-27-05  TheSlid: <rags> Thank-you - I will llok more closely tomorrow.
Mar-27-05  colp99: Anand tries again Queen vs 3 peices except he wins thanks to his queenside pawns.
Nov-04-05  Queens Gambit: I liked this game!!!
Nov-04-05  paragon: queens gambit: that's because it's vishy anand - he's awesome.
Jan-14-06  ckr: 22. c4? what is he thinking. I would play 23.Qa2 Qf7 24. ( Qd5 or d5 or a4) and it looks about an even game to me.
