  plang: In Khenkin-Adams Germany 2002 (Bundesliga) White had played 17 Bxe5 and Black had gone on to win; 17 f3 was new. Dreev did not like 29 a4..a5! and felt that his 29 c5!? was the only way to play for a win. Dreev thought that Black's kingside pawn advances didn't really improve his position and, in fact, later led to White having the opportunity to infiltrate with his rook. 47..Nc7 48 Bb5 would have been winning for White. On the other hand, after Hansen's 47..Bd7, 48 Bb5 would only have led to a draw after 48..Bxb5 49 axb..Nb6 50 a7..c4+! 51 Ka3..Na8.

An enterprising endgame by Dreev; the risky 29 c5!? reminds me a bit of Korchnoi or Larsen.
