Last move was 28…Ne5

“It is a surprisingly awkward position for Anand, despite the limited material. The odd imprecision and he could be in trouble.” – GM Nigel Short

“This allows Magnus with strong play with kingside passed pawns” – GM Susan Polgar

“Black’s problem is that rook is rather passive. White wants to push his pawn to f5 and/or attack the f6-pawn.” – GM Nigel Short
