Finally, minutes upon minutes of hitting refresh have paid off. Thankfully, as Online Poker Players we have the time to do such things.

Greg, 39...Rg7 failed to Rf8+ Kh7 Qf5 trading queens.

Also, the reason Kh7 was not played was that white had Rh8+ Kxh8 Qf8+. Not that white was equalizing or anything, but there were some problems Anand didn't want to deal with. Both moves were winning nicely.

Yeah I only saw the Qf5 later in the other line where it didn't work anymore.

Speelman said on ICC that taking on b2 would be too unclear. c4 and Kg8 just keep total control. It's a very instructive moment, I would have taken on b2 instantly, too. :D

Wonderful final game to a great match. Thanks for the commentary- I guess we owe you some chocolate or something. I hope you get back to the live commentary games eventually but I imagine you'll have your hands full with the US ch. for a while. Looking forward to the joint broadcast with Jen.
Cheers!

anyone else having a rough time getting this to fully download? I've watched it 3 times, only to have it stop permanently at 8m, 23m, and 18m...I'm just going to assume Anand won... :evil:

No, I didn't have any problem- it may be a local network issue where you live.

I'm having problems with getting it to load as well. Perhaps too many people are trying to access it?

I had a problem with it as well. I'm in the UK if that should matter.

....I just downloaded it and watched it. GO ANAND!

Stopped on me a couple times before I just downloaded it too.

Very nice game from Anand. Thanks again for covering this, Greg.
