Thanks for drawing (good pun, eh?) our attention to this game. Presumably your analysis of it consisted of copying and pasting the crap you put in your original post.

  lostemperor: And we thought Leko and Kramnik were the draw kings. Who would have thought of ... Garry Kasparov! Well at least it has paid off for him.

Perhaps he could analyse this game thoroughly in my great predecessor (himself) VI. I had white and needed 5 victories to equal the match and made a draw!

Apr-12-08  Knight13: You could say every GM's a draw king. And Leko is NOT a draw king!
