Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-02-04  acirce: Nice attack. Beautiful moves, 15. h6! preparing the next sacrifice 17. Nf5! I'll leave it as an exercise to find out what happens on 17...exf5 ;-)
Jan-08-06  aw1988: 18. Nd5.
Dec-31-07  KingG: Yes, 18.Nd5 with the main point of 18...Qd8 19.Qxh6!.
Mar-11-08  notyetagm: What a -stupendous- attacking game this is by Anand.
Mar-11-08  arsen387: if 17...exf5 then 18.Nd5 Qd8 19.Qxh6 (threatening Nxf6+) and if 19...Rxh6 then Rg8#, I think. Ye must be frustrated by the way how Anand ruthlessly exploited black's weakness on d6. If I was Ye, then after this games I will kick Anand downstairs:-). Great Anand!
May-23-10  harish22: i believe this was played in the asian championship. anand won gold on the top board. After this tourney, Anand established himself on the international stage .
Aug-13-11  MPU: h6 and Nf5 make for one hell of a combination.
Jul-25-13  EvanTheTerrible: This was such a beautiful attack. Sacrifices all across the board to achieve a common goal. Wow.
