  tamar: I was surprised to see Anand playing it. He has only played it once before as black,acc to chessgames database, and he lost that in a nice ending to Judit. Judit Polgar vs Anand, 1991

Jan-15-04  PinkPanther: Actually Anand has played the Open Ruy Lopez quite a number of times. Anyway, here's that game against Kasparov from 1995. Kasparov vs Anand, 1995
