75th Tata Steel Chess 2013 Round 7: Loek van Wely went for the Scandinavian Defense against Viswanathan Anand, but blundered in a very difficult position on move 35 and the game was over. Although the Dutchman achieved an adequate position on the black side of a Scandinavian Defence, his attempt to break free was ill-timed costing him first a pawn and then the game after 23.Qb1, the move Van Wely had missed in his calculations.
