But this game, he prepared something special against GM Radjabov's dangerous King's Indian Defense.} Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Nf3 O-O {The King's Indian Defense.} 6. Be2 { The Classical variation} e5 7. O-O Nc6 8. d5 Ne7 9. b4 {The Bayonet Attack. GM Anand decided to play this line may be he checked on GM Radjabov's game history on how he scored versus the "Bayonet Attack. Well, your guess is as good as mine, why GM Anand prepared for this line.} a5 {One of the several variations versus "The Bayonet Attack". The idea behind this 9...a5 move is to disrupt connection between the b4 and c4 pawn.. to prevent c5 push.} 10. bxa5 { Best move...} Nh5 11. Nd2 Rxa5 ({If} 11... Nf4 12. Nb3) 12. Nb3 Ra8 13. Bxh5 gxh5 14. Qxh5 {Easy pawn grab. Is this part of black's strategy by giving up the g pawn. Let's find out...} b6 {Controls the c5 square...} 15. a4 {This is standard way to weaken black's queenside pawns.} Ng6 16. a5 Nf4 17. Bxf4 exf4 { Now, the "Dragon Bishop" extends its power diagonally...} 18. Qf3 bxa5 19. Rxa5 Rxa5 20. Nxa5 Qg5 {NOW, LET US STOP HERE. If you play the white side, plan your strategy and check defensive measures.} 21. Ne2 {Checking on f4 pawn...} Be5 22. h3 {Not allowing Bg4...} Bd7 23. Nb3 {Now....the d4 square is fantastic landing square...} Ra8 24. Nbd4 Kh8 25. Rb1 h6 26. Kh1 Kh7 27. Nc6 { Question: Why white is exchanging the knight? Evaluate...} Bxc6 28. dxc6 Ra2 29. g3 {f7 pawn hangs if fxg3..} fxg3 30. Qxf7+ Qg7 31. Qf5+ Qg6 {Interesting position here...obviously, the weakest link is the c7 pawn, why white wants to exchange queens.} 32. Nxg3 Qxf5 33. Nxf5 Ra6 34. Ne7 {GM Radjabov was not taking seriously about this winning move!!!} Kg7 ({If} 34... Bf6 35. Nd5 Bd4 36. f4 Rxc6 37. Rb7 Rxc4 38. Rxc7+ Rxc7 39. Nxc7 {This is winnable for white... }) 35. Rb7 Kf7 36. Rxc7 d5 37. Rd7 {Black Resigned... due to c7 push. In my experience playing "The Bayonet Attack", black can't exercise the tactical elements of the King's Indian Defense. GM Vladimir Kramnik have shown this on his games how to tame black's attack at kingside. Thank you GM Visnathathan Anand for this wonderful game....} 1-0
