Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-06  Gouki: why is this draw? Isnt Kasparov up the exchange?
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: Yes, but he is down three pawns for it. Interesting is 29...Qxd2 30. Rxd2 (30. Rxg4+ Qg5) Bd4!? 31. R4xd4 Re1+ 32. Bf1 Bh3 33. Rd1 Rxf1+ 34. Rxf1 Bxf1 and I would think Black would have whatever winning chances exist. 31. h3? Re1+ 32. Kh2 Bg1+ 33. Kh1 Bc5+ . Maybe Lechtynsky was in time trouble?
Nov-29-08  apple pi: A sympathetic Jiri
Nov-29-08  aazqua: How about 29 . Qd2 30 Rd2 bc3 forking the rooks on d2 and b4 and threatening re1 chk? I suppose black gets away by r*b b*r and then re4 and even if black tries to avoid trading rooks it's still bishops of opposite color and black has weak pawns. Certainly seems like black has an advantage though.
Nov-30-08  apple pi: 31 Rxg4 delivers check, bxr impossible
Mar-06-10  abstract: Absolutely black has a winning advantage..
