|Jan-02-19|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: Amazing that 34..Ne3 leaves white completely without options.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||ChessHigherCat: I must know this game because I saw Ne3 right away.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||jith1207: I even know the pun used for the game. What more? Just stumbled upon this few days ago as well.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Say what? A decisive result? In a world championship match? They sure did things differently in the old days, didn't they?|
|Jan-02-19|| ||devere: "Bonn Fire" doesn't quite describe this game. How about "Lemon Meran Kramnik"? |
29.Nxd4?? blundered away an equal position. I suppose Kramnik missed 30...Nf6!
|Jan-02-19|| ||saturn2: I saw 34...Ne3
35...fxe3 fxe3 36. h3 e2 37. h4 exf1Q
Black can only interject desperados like Rxf7
|Jan-02-19|| ||Penguincw: I was going for Nxh2. e8 says after Kxh2 Rxf1 the position is equal, despite the imbalance in pawns on respective sides of the board.|
I thought of 34...Ne3, but couldn't see that simply after 35...dxe3, black is winning. White has to move, but they're going to lose the bishop.
|Jan-02-19|| ||offramp: Here is a good question:
When was the last piece sacrifice in a World Championship game?
|Jan-02-19|| ||agb2002: I know this game.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||Dionysius1: <offramp> CvK16Q?|
|Jan-02-19|| ||Mayankk: Feels so good to solve an Anand Kramnik WC game. I got it almost immediately which means I may have seen it before although I have no recollection.|
It’s amazing how helpless White is after fxe3. A treat for the eyes.
|Jan-02-19|| ||Dionysius1: Lovely! Kramnik would have had to see 34...♘e3 back when thinking about his 29th move to avoid losing with 29.♘xd4. Because if 34...♘e3 didn't work, for example if there was a ♙g3 instead of g2, he'd have been fine.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||offramp: <Dionysius1: <offramp> CvK16Q?>|
A queen sac in Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016. Yes...I wasn't really thinking about rapids.
I don't know the answer. It is possible that Anand's ...Ne3 in this game is the correct answer.
|Jan-02-19|| ||offramp: <offramp: <Dionysius1: <offramp> CvK16Q?>

I now know the answer.
Anand vs Topalov, 2010.
|Jan-02-19|| ||Olsonist: Yeah, that Anand guy is good with knights.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: Too famous for a puzzle.|
|Jan-02-19|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Maneuvering the knight to d2 is much too slow. Fortunately, there's something better ...|
|Jan-02-19|| ||SamAtoms1980: 34....Ne3 35.fxe3 fxe3 is the ballgame.
Feels like it was more than 10 years ago. An oasis between the dark ages of the split title and the Doldrums of Draw.
|Jan-02-19|| ||Dionysius1: Hi <offramp>. Sorry to be obscure there, I thought it was a quiz type question. |
I don't see the point of excluding rapids from the answer - within WCCs they're still the very epitome of stress, and it probably takes just as much bxlls to sacrifice when you've got much less time to work out the consequences as when you're playing classical games.
But in the classical zone in WCCs, I think you are probably right!
|Jan-02-19|| ||Cibator: Hmmm. Is .... Ne3 as winning move by Black going to be a continuing theme in this week's puzzles?|
|Jan-02-19|| ||landshark: Boy was I out in left field on this one - stared at it forever trying to make .... Nxh2 work. Never saw the obvious follow up to ... Ne3. Yikes!!|
|Jan-02-19|| ||cormier: 18. Rfc1? <<18.a4> f4 19.Bh4 Qc5 20.Kh1 Qh5 21.Rfc1 Rb8 22.Bc6 Bxc6 + / = +0.80 (31 ply)>|
|Dec-11-19|| ||JohnBoy: <devere>’s “ 29.Nxd4?? blundered away an equal position. I suppose Kramnik missed 30...Nf6!” is pathetic. Anand saw slightly further, to the final position. watching this game live was a thrill, and 34...Ne3 was a lovely shock.|
|Dec-11-19|| ||JohnBoy: Another loser comment is <cormier>'s "18.Rfc1?" above. Any diptish can copy/paste the computer line available to us all. This whole game was a magnificent battle.|
