   Dec-12-15 London Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: It's understandable when Anand loses to really strong young players who've posed him problems in the past-like Aronian and Nakamura. But when he loses to Grischuk & loses a Najdorf with the white pieces to MVL, then it means that the overall quality of his play is ...

   Apr-27-15 Kasparov vs Short (Blitz) (2015) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: Kasparov is surely anticipating such matches with Vishy when he retires. He can't let Vishy humiliate him even if they are competing for the World Senior Championships, so it makes sense to remain prepared, which (preparation) is what explains his domination over Short.
   Jan-10-15 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
VaselineTopLove: Shame Anand is not playing at Tata Steel. One would have thought he would come out with guns blazing after the world championship match and play more often in tournaments-especially prestigious events, but alas, that hasn't happened and he seems to be shying away from big ...
   Nov-11-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: <uberhikari> Well, there was equality before Magnus started playing poorly. How did that happen? You don't think game#2 was home prep from Magnus?
   Sep-20-14 Bilbao Masters (2014) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: Why didn't Anand play the Lasker defense to secure a draw? If the Lasker or Ragozin are deemed as safe, solid options for black from which to obtain an equal, riskless position, how does a top GM end up screwing it up?
   Jun-18-14 World Rapid Championship (2014) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: Great showing by Anand who finished a close second and remained undefeated, despite his age.
   Mar-30-14 World Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
VaselineTopLove: I think Game 1 set the stage for Anand. His win over Aronian gave him the confidence that he could still win the tournament, because Aronian's ranking, rating and personal record against Anand all suggested that Aronian was a clear favorite to win the tournament. Had the ...
   Mar-27-14 Anand vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
VaselineTopLove: Had this game been drawn at all points, I'd be ok with the final draw result and ok with Anand not seeking a win at this juncture of the tournament, given his standings. But I'm a bit disappointed that he mis-evaluated a winning position and chose to repeat after the time ...
