  HeMateMe: I was talking to Bobby on my Steinetz telephone. He said that all of these moves were prearranged. I had to put God on hold, but felt that it was worth it.

Anand vs Carlsen, 2010

Aug-30-10  Everett: Perhaps 10.Bb3 is not as enterprising as 0-0-0 or h4. The reason is that white get's more information by holding off on Bb3. For instance, if black wants to prepare ...b5 as in this game, the bishop has to move from c4, and might have to play ..Rac1 or ..Ne5 to compel white's Bb3.
