From: Robert C.
GM Viswanathan Anand has been the undisputed FIDE
world Chess champion five times and has proved to be a formidable player.
While viewing his games from your PGN page database,
I found a game between him and Alonso Zapata played in 1988 in which Anand lost
in just six moves!!.
Did Anand have a chance by moving his Queen to e7
right in front of his King?
because he knew he could not save his Knight by any means.
Losing a minor piece
either a Knight or Bishop in the early stage of a game with no
compensation at all makes a game very hard to win or draw even for a
GM like Anand.
If you believe Anand
had a chance by moving his Queen to e7, below you can play this game
against the computer in the same position Anand resigned and find
out if winning is possible.
You have black pieces
and move next.
Thank you for
