Jan-28-16  Howard: The tournament book referred to this as the most boring game of the tournament (Presumably, this doesn't include short draws.). It said there was a lot of maneuvering, but then Larsen lost a pawn around the time of the adjournment.

  K Any: Lots of technique required after going up a pawn.

  waddayaplay: 40.Kg2 and white is not worse. After the natural looking 40.Ne3, ..Qd7 obviously threatens both ..Qxh3 and ..Nxe4.
