I Think A World Champion Knows Better

Oh dear.

Here's a very "thinly" veiled criticism by GM Anish Giri commenting for Chessbase on the final WCC game between Anand and Topalov:

"46.Qxg2 Bxg2. At this point, some people got very nervous, screaming that they had found a draw. The calm World Champion, however, had seen everything in advance."

I'll give you one guess who GM Anish Giri is referring to - it's the GM who stated on her blog that Anand had blundered with

"40...Kg7" (see picture)

The comments have since been "sanitised" to:

"Although 40...Kh7 is a cleaner and more precise, 40...Kg7 also wins after I looked at it again 41. Nf5+ Kh7 42. Rg3 Rxg3+ 43. hxg3 .... -+"
