Does Anand only have 1 jumper?
Well...with Gelfand leaving the board so soon...either he is in prep, or lots more snacks in the back .
No Scottrf...Anand has many I am sure...but this is his "lucky one"...
I knew they would play the Sicilian defence: Lasker-Pelikan variation, Sveshnikov variation, Chelyabinsk variation.
Can someone give the link?
If Anand castles now he has a decisive 0.02 advantage.
Houdini's two cents?
...decisive?...more like marginal.
From my limited understanding of the Sicilian defence, it has been so deeply analysed that this game could go over twenty moves before they start thinking on their own.
Thank you Scottrf
Sveshnikov, cookies variation
Seeing Anand's reactions, he doesn't seem to feel comfortable.Probably was expecting something else.
Yeah I was kidding.
Lautier is really helpful. I can follow what's going on. The d6 pawn is the main weakness.
Yes "keju", I agree, this GM knows this variation, and he communicates it well...so we will not be "Shorted" today
Now, the Bg2 is biting his own pawns on e4d5 so I guess f4 is coming...
Houdini's line after 18. a3, ends with white exchanging his queen for two rooks!
...I just can't do that trysts...I did that trade on one game, and fought for a draw in the end...never again.
