  plang: 7..Bd6 is safer than the more frequently played 7..Nd5. 8 Na3 was new; Karpov had played 8 0-0 in a short draw with Kramnik at Wijk-Aan-Zee 1998. 8..Bxa3 would have allowed Black to hold onto the pawn though White would have had compensation while 8..a6 is another alternative. 12..Qe7 would have been solid enough after 13 Qa3..d5 but Anand sacrificed the d-pawn instead with 12..0-0!?. 14 Nb5..Qc7 15 0-0..Qb6 would have lost for White. 20 Qd1 would have lost to 20..Rxc3 21 bxc..Qxc3+ 22 Kf1..Bb5+.
