  fredthebear: Endings with bishops of opposite color are notoriously drawish, so these two GMs called it even.

  Clement Fraud: Garry Kasparov never willingly swaps Queens in a sharp position; so the fact of him doing so here is an admission of the failure of his opening strategy: After 9... Rd8, 11... d5 and 13... Bf5 white is left with nothing. It's a shame, because the idea of 5.Be3 (rather Nxc6) looked promising... maybe 9.Kh1 wasn't necessary?
