Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-08-04  WMD: For a day Danny was champion of the world! Anand had just won the superstrong Reggio Emilia tournament in Italy, ahead of Kasparov and Karpov.

Anand's problems begin with 25.Rad1, when 25.Be1 should lead to a draw. 28...Rxb2 would have won quickly, but King was scared he could be killed after Bxh6 with White's rook finding its way to the 8th rank.

Feb-13-07  ianD: Just enough steam to get himself accross the line!
Mar-12-09  sallom89: what a complicated game!
Nov-23-13  Overgod: Nice game from Daniel King.
Nov-23-13  RedShield: That Vishy is what you get for dicking about.
Dec-06-14  wordfunph: "The crowd egged Vishy on as he advanced 1.e4. But Danny played his trusted Najdorf, and a nation weeped a billion tears as their hero bit the dust."

- GM David Norwood

Aug-28-16  diagonal: Anand was clear no. 5 of the world when Danny beat him at the <Goodricke International Chess Open in Kolkota>, 3rd edition in 1992, organised by the Alekhine Chess Club:

Two brits at the top: GM King, winner and GM Norwood.

King won this strong swiss system at 8.0/11 on tie-break, Norwood second, Anand finally was third, Dreev fourth in a four way-tie.

After nine rounds, King was leading alone, cooly aiming for two draws in the last two rounds to secure his tournament win.

Some further prominent players (in no particular order): Ehlvest, Gufeld, Georgiev, Ribli, Bologan, and Barua of course, more than 100 participants; thirteen players from the former USSR, travelling all in bus, arrived too late, ten were given a bye (half a point) for the first round, they started to play in the second of eleven rounds.
