Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-01-08  Udit Narayan: "I hope this will last for a long time." (Anand on never having lost a standard time control game to Carlsen)
Aug-01-08  VaselineTopLove: When I saw this game at first, I thought Carlsen was trying a psychological ploy against Anand, given Anand's losses with the Dragon against Kasparov in 1995. But then I saw Carlsen employing the same opening against other players too...
Aug-01-08  Atking: A pity that Anand didn't play 14...g4 like Dominguez did. I want to know Carlsen's improvement on.
Aug-03-08  SetNoEscapeOn: If Anand has anything, he's probably saving it for a more important event (Bilbao).
