  Troller: 57.Nd5! not falling into the clever trap after 57.Kxf4??
Feb-19-13  WiseWizard: Children, don't you see the ease with which Anand plays? Its pure beauty, nothing is rushed, everything composed and calm very zen like, he only takes what is given.
Feb-19-13  RookFile: In other words, he didn't create any problems for black to solve in the opening. Once it was like that, it is true that his play was excellent and he stayed within himself.

  perfidious: The subvariation with 8.Bd2 is, at least, a way of deviating from the reams of theory after 8.Qc2 Nxc3 9.Qxc3, which was played extensively at the highest levels through the 1970s. This also is considered to offer equality after 9....f5.
