Anand outplays Giri in round 5
Experience gives Youth a lesson
What should you do in a position where you don’t know what to play? The answer is to be patient, don’t force things and instead wait for an opportunity to come along.
This is the lesson that 49 year old Vishy Anand gave today to 24 year old Anish Giri. The Dutch grandmaster emerged from the opening with a very pleasant position but was not sure of the correct plan.
He started to play aimlessly, and in the space of just 3 or 4 moves he succeeded in ruining his position. Anand took full advantage of his opportunities and won an instructive game.

An impressive example of exploiting the small imprecisions of your opponent!
