  1. Fantastic translations. Wonderful. Makes the games a million times more enjoyable.

  2. Rd.3 was very disappointing; surely all of Anand’s manoevring deserved more explanation than a mere “Black’s rook is deserted from K-side”….

    But looks like it was just an off-day for Shipov (or maybe it’s his weak point as annotator – explaining long manoevres inducing mistakes?)

  3. yeah… that sound right. Never thought of an annotator’s psychology before, but a live one’s surely must be considered.

    Guess I forgive him -;) thanks.

    btw, “ponderous” bishop on c1; cool choice of adj (by you too)
