I live in Austin! My favorite is Vishy Anand!

   Jun-24-15 Norway Chess (2015) (replies)
 
vraja: I feel sorry for Hammer, who's getting hammered here. It isn't his mistake after all to have been born in Norway:-) It's a good opportunity for him, but sometimes can rob one's confidence, too.

vraja: http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatime... A fantastic article on the greatness of Anand!
 
   May-17-13 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
 
vraja: I can't think of a chess champion who is a disciplinarian also--someone others could follow professionally and personally. Never once has he bad mouthed others, although he could have passed free comments on everyone. Even when his citizenship was questioned, he maintained silence and
 
   Feb-17-13 Naiditsch vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
vraja: A very unusual game since Anand not only brings his queen to the center early but also sacrifices his rook for White's knight. A very enjoyable game that highlights his confidence.
 
   Jan-15-13 Aronian vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
vraja: I'm becoming a very big fan of Aronian for his sportive gesture: He was obviously frustrated and went to mention in a sportive way that he needed to study openings better... instead of putting over that it was one of Anand's vicious home preparations... No wonder he is well liked by ...
 
   Dec-07-12 London Chess Classic (2012) (replies)
 
vraja: Anand seems to be too timid and unimaginative in his games since all that he gets in his games is an equal position, if not worse, with both white and black. I'm sad for Gelfand now. He should have beaten him. I wonder why he didn't take the pawn and instead went to protect his b ...
 
   Sep-26-12 Caruana vs Anand, 2012 (replies)
 
vraja: It doesn't matter :-) Being an ardent fan of Anand, I've been disappointmented bigtime since he is mostly the one to give perpetuals or to fight for a survival. Perhaps, the title is weighing him down.
 
   May-11-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
 
vraja: It was nice to see both Anand and Gelfand analyzing the game together after agreeing to a draw: Tomorrow, I hope Gelfand throws in everything he has in his arsenal to outwit Anand. The commentary was also revolving around Anand's not-so-great recent performances: Short hit the nail in
 
   Dec-11-11 London Chess Classic (2011) (replies)
 
vraja: All much-awaited Anand games have ended in dull draws. The tournament might have been more interesting had Topa participated instead of Anand--at least he would have fought till the very end for a result. Flamboyance in Anand is really missing.
 
   Nov-24-11 Tal Memorial (2011) (replies)
 
vraja: as usual, the quickest to make a draw. If not motivated, he shouldn't play since millions of fans expect something from a WC... Very disappointed.
