Vishy Anand and Anish Giri played a striking game in the third round of the Gashimov Memorial. 

"Anand outplayed me in the opening", admitted the younger player. "He tried a plan in the Caro-Kann which was not very well known to me. I do not have a great deal of experience in such positions. He allowed the advance с6-с5, which he usually tries to stop, but I still have weaknesses on the kingside. In summary, I was outplayed." .


Here he could have played 17.Nxf5 Rxf5 18.Rxf4, regaining the pawn, with a bishop and knight. I also have two minor pieces, but the bishop on g7 is dead. I am a bit worse, although pretty defensible. 
Vishy played 17.Rxf4, but miscalculated. The position an exchange down is quite unclear, although I really don't know, it needs analysing. During the game, I thought I could be worse. 
17...g5 18.Nxf5 gxf4 19.Nxg7 Kxg7 20.Qg4+ Kh7 21.Qxe6 Nb6! Anand said he did not go into the variation voluntarily, but because he had missed this key move. The knight defends d5 and the queen enters the game. The position slipped out of control, but maybe was better for White at some point.  

Giri also spoke about Anand's characteristics and other matters. See interview to follow.
