Mar-22-07  muzzy: That's Anand domination right there.
Mar-22-07  Udit Narayan: Maybe Anand is a better player today than he was in 1998
Mar-22-07  sheaf: i really dont know why van wely is playing najdorf in blindfold against the likes of anand, what happened to sveshnikov he was pretty good with it i thought.
Mar-22-07  progrock64: Brilliant!!!

  Peligroso Patzer: 23. ... Ng4 looks at lot like a computer move (adding one to the move count until inevitable mate). Luckily for Van Wely, he got crushed in this game, so suspicious of computer assistance are not plausible.
Mar-22-07  slomarko: well maybe he uses a bad engine.
Mar-22-07  vikas: 23... Ng4 is not a typical computer move. he had played 23... Ng4 so that aftr 24...rf7, anand cant capture rook by 25... qf7 because of bg5+ threat. but he overlooked hanging a8 rook.
Mar-22-07  sheaf: <vikas> there wasnt much to look or overlook at that point all he hoping for was anand missing bg5 and falling into the trap and get down to a rook vs bishop ending but sadlyfor him anand was better prepared than his last game.
Mar-22-07  dehanne: 18..Qc7 is just horrible. Anand received the point on a silver platter.
