Can You please evaluate here idea behind Anand's Rb4. I was astonished he did that, and could not see "great plan" behind it.
I am not Anand, so you can take my comments with a fairly generous grain of salt.
Vishy envisioned ousting the d5 kight by ...Kb7 and ...c6, when he has access to white's weak queenside pawns (c4, a4).
The real problem with that plan is (as flawlessly demonstated by Magnus) white can create issues on the other flank by a timely f2-f4, when Black has no time to mop up the queenside.
Yes, but for his plan to work, Magnus had to make at least one mistake there, and I wanted to see where :)
Who will win the World Championship Match? Vote Anand or Carlsen. I vote Anand.
CARLSENNNN again and again
