  Chessical: Gashimov's woes begin with taking the <f> pawn which loses a pawn. Anand is then able to build an impessive pawn advance on the K-side to which Gashimov has no effective reply. Perhaps <23.Rg1> instead of Rf1 would have been somewhat better to support the advance of the <g> pawn?
May-10-09  NguyenVo: In my opinion the whole plan starting with 15.Nf5 was dubious for White. While it did create a superficial pawn weakness at f5 (which actually improved Black's control of the e4 square later), White was forced to trade Queen a few moves later and entered a mid-late game where his pawn weakness at h5 and f2 were greater than Black's f5.
Jul-29-12  dchrist: <14. Rde1> rather than Rhe1 could be an improvement for white. H file pressure defends the advanced pawn, E file pressure allows for a central attack (although it is easily stopped by ...Rfe8), but the rook on the D file does not contribute meaningfully to either attack or defense.
