Regarding game one analysis of the Anand-Topalov World Chess championship

I want to apologize for what happened with the analysis I posted. I thought I had posted the final copy of the analysis, only to find a short time later by playing through the moves using Chessviewer Deluxe,that I had posted the wrong game in my database as the finished copy! (groan)  I have rectified this situation by posting the version of the analysis which I had wanted to in the first place. You can now play through the moves of the game with all of the analysis I had originally  wanted you to see. I used 3 books I have dealing with the Grunfeld Defense, as well as Chessbase 10, Chessbase Megadatabase 2010, and Deep Rybka 3 in analysis mode for one hour to analyze the game. I then added other variations which Deep Rybka 3 was interested in showing me. To play through the game using Chessviewer Deluxe follow these steps:

Click on the games tab and select game 48.This will bring up the board and the moves of the game as well as the analysis which Deep Rybka 3 and I have created. Then you can use your mouse on each move each player made in succession to play through the game and the analysis. (Alternatively, you can use the arrows just below the board to play through the moves and the variations I have provided. ) When you click on a move in the scoresheet, the move shows on the board and so does any analysis which exists related to that move. The move and the analysis also pop up for each move you play forward or backward with the arrows.
(2) You can flip the board so the black pieces are in front of you using either the  second button from the left or alternatively you can click once on the board, which brings up a menu which allows you to select "flip board". I hope this is a useful post to those of you interested in the playing through the analysis of this game or any other game in the games menu.

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
