    Huge result for Anton winning as black. Biggest win for him ever? Have to imagine...

      Congratulations for a monumental win for Anton. I saw a tweet (I think from Susan Polgar?) asking whether Anand would regret the speculative piece sac that she showed on a diagram (Knight chops a pawn to get a second passer...) I haven't looked through the entire game but it seems he clearly didn't get compensation for one reason or another (I hope it was because Anton played sharply!)

      Way to go!

          chessbomb kibitzers:

          - kova seems to have no fear at all
          - getting serious for Anand
          - Anton is playing some serious moves here
          - wow
          - if Anand lost in this fide world cup then he will not qualify for Candidates 2018
          - no way old anand again meets Carlsen
          - Kovyalov has played the top computer move since move 23, kudos
          - Anand’s 23.Nc5 was an amazing move and Black played very well to refute it
          - Bravo Anton!
          - Only So can stop Kovalyov
          - wow, Anand lost
          - Good job, Canada 1-0

            I don't understand the 'only So can stop him' comment? Anton is in a very tough bracket. Next up is Adams, then Nakamura and then So.

            Nevertheless, there is still one game to play against Anand. A draw with the white pieces can't be that hard, but we know the old tiger will show his teeth.

                          The irony here is you support Trump and his closed border ideas concerning immigration.

                            The irony here is your hero Trump would oppose many skilled immigrants from coming into his country.

                            Would Trump have allowed him to immigrate into his country ?
                            Duncan, instead of crapping on Wayne's good effort ... please use Peter McKillop's thread as your Trump toilette bowl.

                            You have our thanks.

                              I'm not crapping on Wayne's effort. I'm crapping on your idiotic beliefs that are scattered all over this forum. Anton is a recent
                              immigrant that was welcomed by Canada; your hero Trump is openly hostile about immigrants regardless of their skills. This is a
                              perfect time to illustrate what immigrants can bring to a country.
