|Feb-20-09|| ||Ishaan: Hey guys, is Q+N always slightly advantageous vs. Q+B in an endgame?|
|Feb-20-09|| ||WannaBe: <Ishaan> Hard to answer, best look it up with the endgame explorer...|
|Feb-20-09|| ||anandrulez: Ishaan I think not always , but it depends on how ur knight can move around . If you king is open then Q+N is better !|
|Feb-20-09|| ||Bondsamir: Exposed is not the right word here.
completely naked king alone in front of horny queen and knight.the result is known already.
|Feb-20-09|| ||Crowaholic: Radjabov could have resigned after 58. Qe5+!. There is nothing Black can do to prevent the WQ from giving check on the 6th, winning the bishop. So even if Anand hadn't found this beautiful way of disposing of the black queen, he would have won the endgame with ease.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||arnaud1959: Years ago I saw a study with ♔+♕+♘ vs. ♔+♕+♙ and all the pieces were in the middle of the board. There were about 20 moves (40 plies) to analyse. You could see how a ♕ and a ♘ could cooperate.|
Please find me that study!
|Feb-20-09|| ||Andrijadj: This game is not only well played by Vishy,it is also a serious blow to the Sveshnikov...|
|Feb-20-09|| ||percyblakeney: <After some bad moments with his KID in Corus this is another blow to Radjabov's adventurous/precarious black repertoire>|
Mig is rather critical of Radjabov's black repertoire, but I wonder if <precarious> isn't to exaggerate. It's not as if he has bad results with black in general, or had a bad Corus. He did win with the KID against both Wang Yue and Ivanchuk even if he went wrong against van Wely. Black against Anand isn't exactly a guaranteed draw for anyone regardless of the opening, and one should probably not draw any other conclusions from this game than that Anand is the World Champion for many good reasons.

Read GM Dorian Rogozenko's comments..he thinks the mistake committed by black came as early as move 30 !!...interesting to see that computers only evaluated this position as slightly better for white..but it appears in hindsight that black can actually do nothing and white can slowly keep getting closer to the black king..!! and a centralized bishop is the least effective piece since its doing nothing to protect his own king while attacking the opponents king seems only like a dream...
|Feb-20-09|| ||mrbasso: <sheaf> I don't trust any GM commentary, especially not those coming from chessbase.com. They are always superficial.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||percyblakeney: GM Zagrebelny's annotations:
|Feb-20-09|| ||Andrijadj: I think Rogoz is right...Comps can't evaluate this type of positions properly...|
|Feb-20-09|| ||fromoort: <mrbasso>Yeah! Those stupid grandmasters...what do they know?!|
|Feb-23-09|| ||Chess Carnival: It's amazing to see how well the knight coordinates with the queen..|
|Feb-24-09|| ||MarbleSkull: I'd like to see Anand play a high-end computer under the lights. Games like this highlight his far-seeing strategic abilities, as well as pure calculating proficiency, that could help him pull off a much-needed victory for the humans.|
|Mar-13-09|| ||NARC: Has anyone checked out 48 ... Qe6 for black?|
|Apr-07-09|| ||Rodo24: Hi, everyone. great game this one! But I have some personal opinions about it:|
1. Instead of 4. ..., Nf6, I think itīs more aggressive to play 4...., e5
2. Instead of 6. ...., d6, I feel more at ease with 6...., a6, then, Nd6+, Bxd6, Qxd6, Qe7, Qxe7+, Kxe7, Nd5+, Nxd5, exd5, Nd4, Ad3... well, at least thatīs how i like to play.
3. Why not 13. ..., b4, for me it follows 14.Nc2, a5, 15.a3, b3 16.Ne3, a4, etc.
4. I like 32. ..., Be3, 33. Rd8+, Rg8 34. Rxg8+, Qxg8 35. Qxg8+, Kxg8 36. Cd5, Bd4, b3, and in my opinion, black are better.
|Apr-07-09|| ||costachess: 20. ... e4|
|Aug-14-09|| ||freeman8201: Query: Was Anand afraid of Radjabov playing the King's Indian Defence. I mean to sound quaint but Anand has been playing Queen's Pawn as of late.|
|Sep-17-09|| ||Knightequila: Anand is the actual best player !!|
|Apr-29-10|| ||Hector Maluy: Amazing game!|
|Aug-25-12|| ||fearnotofman: In addition to showing how powerful a Q+N can be it, it's an excellent example of a useless bishop in an open position. Anand just took away every potential target for the bishop when it was on e4, and even completely neutralized it when it was on the dangerous diagonal on b6. |
Superb game by Anand. Very instructive to play through.
|Aug-26-12|| ||GauraNitai: looooooooool @ fromoort :D|
|Jun-27-13|| ||VaselineTopLove: This game reminds me of
Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
