  An Englishman: Good Morning: According to the Guardian UK, even Morozevich thought 8.h4 was bad, but Anand missed 9...Ba6! and paid the price.
Jan-23-17  ChessHigherCat: 14. Re1 loses the c pawn after Bb4
Jan-23-17  ChessHigherCat: <An Englishman: Good Morning: According to the Guardian UK, even Morozevich thought 8.h4 was bad, but Anand missed 9...Ba6! and paid the price.> Hi, sorry, I don't get the follow-up to 9. B...a6! 10. exf... White can trade queens then on the open file so there's no more pin on c4, and if black plays Nb6 the pawn is easy to defend with b3.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: 9...Ba6; 10.exf6,Qxe2+; 11.Bxe2,Nxf6 keeps the King side pawns healthy and prevents Bh5+. 11...Bb4+ might also suffice for Black.

It didn't look like a bad move, it's just that when I see a suggestion by Morozevich with an exclamation point I generally expect some kind of miraculous combination.
