  Honza Cervenka: 34.Rcg1 looks very unpleasant for black.
Feb-05-07  Sydro: 34.Rg5 White gets over +2.00 advantage from rybka.
Feb-05-07  IMDONE4: Could we get the whole variation Sydro? Im too tired (or dumb) to figure out wat happens after 34... Qxf3
Feb-06-07  Sydro: <IMDONE4> After 34...Qxf3 White plays 35.Rg1 and now:

Analysis by Rybka 2.2 32-bit:

35...Rc8xc3 36.b2xc3 Bg7-f6 37.Rg5-f5 Kf8-e8 38.Rf5xf6 Qf3-e2+ 39.Rg1-g2 f4-f3 40.Rg2-f2 Ke8-d7 41.Kh2-g3 Qe2xe4 42.Nh3-g5 (2.15) Depth: 21 00:13:40 43204kN

Feb-06-07  Sydro: Should say 35.Rcg1 to be correct.
Feb-06-07  IMDONE4: Yes, so Gurgendize missed his chance to beat Tal =/
Feb-06-07  Plato: Yes, but he did beat Tal in two later encounters.
