Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-05-04  InspiredByMorphy: Ouch! Move 35 by Anand must have seriously stung for Tomczak! It looks like the Tomczak is winning, starting with a sacrifice and then getting 3 pawns back and an attack, but overlooks the bishops who at first glance dont look like the powerhouses, but in this situation were!
Jan-06-04  Reisswolf: Ha ha ha! Poor Tomczak! I understand the pain. I've made similar howlers against my computer several times.
Jan-06-04  pilot: Clearly it sucks to be Tomczak, but I don't think the Knight was sound anyway. I think maybe starting up trouble on the Queenside would have been a better option.
Apr-25-04  Queen killer: The knight sac by white was definately worth a shot
May-22-04  Tigran Petrosian: Tomaszak could have won 35.Qh6 Kg8 36.Re6 when Anand can't defend against 37.Qg5 Kf8 38. Rf6.
May-23-04  Tigran Petrosian: Guys, can anyone find holes in my analysis?
May-23-04  ajit: yep Tigran you r pretty much there!
Oct-17-05  notyetagm: This game provides a great example of a <lurking bishop>. Black's h7-bishop seems to be doing nothing but lurking in the background until White blunders with 35 ♖e6??. Then, suddenly, Black plays 35 ... ♕xe6!, <exploiting the pin> on the b1-h7 diagonal created by this lurking h7-bishop (36 fxe6? ♗e4#), and the game is over.

It's like Reinfeld says, <"The defensive power of a pinned piece is merely illusory">.

Oct-17-05  Sydro: This line wins for white:

34.Re6 Re7 35.Rg6+ Qxg6(forced) 36.fxg6 Bxg6 37.Qxg6+ Kf8

+ - (14.00) Fritz 8
