Jan-26-04  ughaibu: This must be a loss on time, not surprising really, it's a crazy complicated game.
Jan-26-04  Catfriend: How black plays against 28.♖:e5?
Jan-26-04  ughaibu: How about 28....d2 29.Bf3 Qd3?
Jan-26-04  Catfriend: I don't know to where it will lead, but 30.♖e3, and the game seems more or less equal.
Jan-26-04  ughaibu: Then how about 30....d1Q 31.Bd1 Qd1 32.Kh2 Rb6 followed by Bd5 and Bd4?
Jan-26-04  Catfriend: Better for white 32.♔g2, with possible f3. Still, 32..♗:b2 33.♕:g5+ ♗g7 34.♕f4 is just a bit worse for white. So, 28.♕d6! must be considered the best!
Jan-26-04  crafty: 28. ♖xe5 d2 29. ♗f3 ♕d3 30. ♕e3 d1=♕+ 31. ♗xd1 ♕xd1+ =   (eval 0.00; depth 14 ply; 1000M nodes)
Jan-26-04  Catfriend: Now can you, crafty, analyse 28.♕d6?

  chessgames.com: 28.♕d6 was played, of course. If I ask crafty to analyze that he'll try to find the best defense for Black at that point. OK, let's ask...

  Honza Cervenka: According to the database of chessbase.com this game was played in the 19th Soviet championship and Geller won it, not Kotov. The result should be 0-1.
Jan-26-04  crafty: 28. ♕d6 ♖e8 29. ♖xe5 ♗xe5 30. ♕xe5 f6 31. ♕c5 d2 =   (eval 0.24; depth 14 ply; 1000M nodes)
