Interesting ending but hardly a very convincing presentation by the world champion. He should have revised the lines a bit before the lecture.

My Fav. Commentators amongst top players

1) Kramnik (this year he seems to really relax and be interested in finding the truth about positions - whilst still showing many alternative creative plans)
2) Aronian
3) Shirov ( Mainly from Videos)

who do you guys recommend/prefer

I dont like Kramnik for one reason only. It's because he and other players of east european countries have the habit of saying "But I mean OK". I hate it! Kramnik,Gelfand and to some extent Radjabov are members of that club.

Weird, did Anand complete explaining his own ending to the end?

I guess so, but he didn't really verbalised it this way.
