Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-12  govind: A fighting game but still a draw.black is never in much trouble.some of Anand's game seem lively but it appears he is fighting for a draw.
Oct-14-12  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 8 Bd2 8 Qc2 keeps the option of Bc1-a3

11 Ng5? starts an attack in a position where White has little or no overall advantage. The attack can be expected to fail. This suggests 11 Be2 or 11 0-0.

36 Qe8+? lets Black's rook get out. This suggests 36 Qf6
