Hesam7: I found the TWIC report on this round of 2001 Corus written by John Henderson: http://www.chess.co.uk/wijk2001/r07...[Kasparov]
<Last year Garry walked out of a press conference after his final game against Polgar, after discovering the audience had just given Weird Al Morozevich his record-equalling fourth award (he now shares the title of most awards with Ivanchuk and Anand 1996 and 1999), he simply marched off to his hotel, muttering under his breath: “They [the audience] don’t understand the first thing about chess. I won this tournament by a margin of 1.5 points – and still they show no respect!”
Well, let’s fast-forward twelve months: Again Garry is annoyed with the audience, and again he’s stormed out of a press conference due to their choice for game of the day. Our highly efficient press officer, Tom Bottema, was cock-a-hoop with delight after persuading Garry to do the press conference of the on his win over Veselin Topalov. Tom's joy soon turned to gloom as Garry upped and walked after discovering that the audience (by a 4 vote margin over Garry - I did tell Gazza he should have done a "Gore") had presented the daily award to Kramnik – who had been lost for much of his game to Ivanchuk!
In fairness, Garry did have a point, and he didn’t really think that his game should have been a candidate after Topalov’s horrific blunder. “If Chucky had won he would have been my choice of the day, but Kramnik was losing – how could they award it to him? It was random, he won because Chucky was in serious time trouble.” And with that, the winter coat, boots and furry hat was put on as he and his second, Yuri Dokhoian, trudged through the snow back to his hotel.>
[Analysis]
[1] <<16. ... e3!?> Missing the big chance to centralise with 16. ... Qd5! 17. Rf1 Be7. As it is, Kramnik's choice is, as we call it in the trade, a bit "iffy".> Since Black could have maintained equality with 17. ... Bd6! instead of 17. ... Bb6? I don't think 16. ... e3 was a mistake.
[2] <<19. ... g4> The only move: 19. ... Qe7? 20. Nc6 Qf8 21. Qxf6!>
[3] <<20. Qe2> 20. Qf4?! Nd5 21. Qc4 c6 22. Nxc6 Qg5!>
[4] <<21. Nc6> 21. O–O! looks much stronger - the rooks are powerfully placed on the d and f files.>
[5] <<22. ... Qc5?> 22. ... Qh6! A crucial saving move - it holds the Black game together beautifully: 23. Nxe6 (23. O–O? Bc4! 24. Qxc4 e2!; 23. Be5 Ne4!) 23. ... Rxe6 24. Ne5 Qg5 and Black's over the worse, and White's got a few problems to solve.> So this gives Black yet another option to equalize beside 22. ... Bc8.
[6] <<23 Ne5> You can now see why both players - more so Chucky with just about 90 seconds left - were in a frantic time scramble. All sorts of complications now had to be calculated: 23. Be5? Bc4 24. Qxe3 Nh7! with f6 to follow, and White's in a bad way.> The novelty of the game was 8. Bg5 so in other words Ivanchuk must have spent something around 1 hour and 55 minutes on the 15 moves from move 9 to move 23 ...
