  plang: A few months earlier at Budapest Polgar had innovated with 16 Nxb5!? against Leko and Black had gone on to win. That move has not been repeated and here Polgar switched back to the main line with 16 c3. Also at that Budapest tournament Leko had played 17..Qb6 against Acs and White had gone on to win; 17..Rc8 was new. Polgar had expected 18..Qa5+ 19 Kf1..b4 20 Nc2..Qb6 with chances for both sides. After 20..Qc7?! 23 bxa the pawn on a6 gave White a clear edge; necessary was 22..Qxe1+ 23 Rxe1..axb 24 Bxb5+..Kf8 25 Rxe4..Ng6 when Black has sufficient compensation and the game will likely end in a draw. Black may have underestimated the strength of 24 Rg1 which simultaneously defended against the check on h3 as well as taking over the g-file. 30..e3 31 Bxc8..exf2+ 32 Kxf2..Be5 33 Qa4+..Kf8 34 Rd1..Qxd1 35 Qxd1..Rxd1 36 a7..Bd4+ 37 Ke2 would have been winning for White.
