Jul-09-15  Nerwal: 30. ♗xd6 ♗c4 is awkward - although 30. ♗c3 ♗c6 doesn't look great either.
Jul-09-15  fokers13: 30.Bxd6 Bc4 then why not 31.Bc5 followed by Rd8?

it's possible i'm missing something obvious though

  plang: This game was played in the last (9th) round. Entering the round there was a four way tie for first between Polgar, Khalifman, Karpov and Milos and to make it more thrilling the four were paired among themselves. This nice win by Polgar paired with Karpov drawing a difficult endgame against Khlalifman resulted in Polgar finishing first. 12..Nc5 was a new idea; taking the pawn with 13 Qxg7 looks shaky for White has never been attempted. 17 c4? was poorly timed and ended up costing White material; Milos recommended 17 Rd2..a5 18 c4..a4 19 Bd1..Kh8 20 Bg5..f6 21 Be3..g6 with the idea of ..Ng7, ..e5 and ..f5. 24 Bxa5? would have failed to 24..Rxa5 25 Rxa5..Qb6 26 Raa4..Bxa4 27 Rxa4..Qb5 winning. Milos set up a solid defensive formation and had good chances of holding the position until 35 Rd1?..Bc4!. 39..a3! was winning because if 40 Rd1..axb 41 Rb1..Rb3 42 Bxb2..Bd3 43 Rd1..Rxb2.
