Sep-01-03  Brian Watson: Why 23.g3? Why not 23.Nxg6?
Feb-20-04  InspiredByMorphy: Great game from Kramnik against one of the world's finest!

Sep-30-04  acirce: Rapid. See the report
Oct-01-04  Kean: I never saw this game! This was really a dinamic berlin, maybe by the pression Vishy was doing.
Dec-09-04  Bobak Zahmat: The this may be a rapid match. But still, Anand plays very badly the last moves. Someone of his calibur should do better!

May-22-06  Whitehat1963: 24...Nxf4! Is there any defense after this?
Nov-24-06  Open Defence: and they dared to call him Drawnik....
Nov-15-14  The Rocket: g3 is a careless move from Anand. One ought not lose from this position as white.
