Kibitzer's Corner
May-03-07  panandh: Wow, what a match. I thought black is lost when white attacked on the h8 corner. Black not only came out and played beautifully to take full point
May-03-07  scholes: White was actually better before 39 ke2 which dropped a piece
Jan-08-08  Udit Narayan: Unbelievable blunder by Anand. Though I'm not much more than a patzer, dropping a knight seems pretty uncharacteristic of Anand. Can someone enlighten me? Was there some other threat or did Anand suffer from a case of fatigue or chess blindness?
Jan-08-08  aazqua: This looked like a certain win for white. Anand really seems to have dropped the ball a couple times here. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a way to finish off the attack, possibly with a rook lift.
Jan-08-08  aazqua: Maybe 28 nf5?
