  Honza Cervenka: If 43.Rd1 (43.Nd5 Rh6+ 44.Kg1 Ne2+ 45.Kf1 Nxc1 46.Nce7+ Kf7 47.Nxf5 Rh1#), then 43...Ne2

Jun-09-08  percyblakeney: 41. ... g3+ is a nice move. In this Kasparov's last Olympiad he scored +6 in 9 games, finishing with a GM draw against Gelfand, when it was a question of securing the gold and all games were very short draws. Apart from that he drew with black against Leko and Akopian, and won the remaining six for a 2933 performance.

  plang: The line that Lutz chose with 12 Bd3 has lost popularity since the 1995 World Championship match when Anand used it three times against Kasparov (games 3,5 and 7 - all drawn). 17..Bf8 had been played in the short draw Svidler-Anand Linares 1999; 17..Bf6 was new - it hads been prepared by Kasparov during the 1995 match. 22 Rf3 would have been a more aggressive choice.

Stohl after 23 Rfc1:
"The only way to justify White's previous move is 23 g4!?, but Lutz doesn't want to play such a committal plan and is content to stay put. Kasparov senses this and from now on, the initiative will gradually pass into his hands."

29 Nb6? was an odd move as the knight accomplished little on this square; 29 Nc7 would have been better. Again, 30 Rxc5 playing for simplification would have been an improvement. 31..g5?! would have won a pawn but would have given White good counterplay after 32 Nfd5..Bxd3 33 Nd7!. 34 Rf1? underestimated Black's strong reply 34..Re8! when all White's pieces were threatened. 35 Nxd6..Rf8 would have cost White material. 36..Ra8? would have failed to 37 Nc8!.
