Anand must have been surprised at how fast Gelfand started the game...he clearly was on familar territory...
Good idea to have Houdini off! With Houdini on, it's a bit like watching a movie knowing the ending.
...so here is where Gelfand lost his GPS...he now has to find his way with his own mind...this should be a great game...move 13.
ok, did not expect basically out of book on move 5. looks much easier to play white.
Ya let's see how good Anand is
wow...Gelfand is really burning the clock on this move...move 13.
Gelfand castled ??? Is it ok ?
I'd say his castle is fine with the queens of the board. Interesting game.
Gelfand's King is very open, but he may not have had much choice since it will take him time to free his pieces on the king side...and yes RussiaWithLove, with the Queen's off...he is much more secure.
Anand is 26 min ahead
I'm wondering as White if I can push my pawn to a6, play Ra5 and Ba3. not sure otherwise how to improve white pieces much further
yes, Gelfand is now in unchartered territory...and using more time. Anand had some time to look at various options here.
I don't know. I think you gotta simplify the position considerably first before attacking the weak pawns.
Ba3, a move I don't understand.
May be Anand wants to play Ne4
Putting pressure on the c5 pawn?
Gelfand played Nd5
right Ne4, would be the plan of course, i guess the question is what white has after nd5-b4.
