Mar-04-06  ahmadov: <originalface> The game started 7 hours ago.
Mar-04-06  Fan of Leko: <79. Rf3+ ?????????????? > I agree- if he played that it seems he missed an easy win. Could be move order is wrong.
Mar-04-06  dakgootje: Hmmmmmm.....predicted a draw, but a quick one -.-
Mar-04-06  Scarecrow: Very interesting game, tiring even to follow. Leko really is a drawing master, and I think he is in an admirable way.
Mar-04-06  switch: Hm, what about 79. Rc5+? There would be plenty of fight left in that situation, and white would have winning chances, wouldn't he?

Although with so little time left perhaps 79.Rf3+ forcing the draw was the correct decision.

Mar-04-06  roni.chessman: <Another good game by Radjabov, not enough to beat Leko today but no bad effort.>

Yeah well he faces Chucky tomorrow. And I bet teimour is tired as heck.

  keypusher: 79 b7 Rb8 80 Rc7 Ke6 81 Kc3 f5 and how does white win?
Mar-04-06  Fan of Leko: <Hm, what about 79. Rc5+?> Yes that is tempo for R to get behind pawn, king conmes up and wins the a pawn. 2 connected pawns give white very strong winning chances. Maybe he needed more time to analyse.
Mar-04-06  Fan of Leko: Looking further I believe black can force trade of b pawn for f pawn before white can defend it. Endings with only rook pawn are almost always drawn.
Mar-04-06  originalface: Thx Jamesmaskell and ahmadov
Mar-04-06  dakgootje: I miss a bored-looking-non-dancing-rook -.-
Mar-04-06  CowardlyKnight: <originalface> Where do you live?
Mar-04-06  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 17...Bf6?! 17..Nd5! attacks the Bc3 and supports ..c3
Mar-04-06  svbabu: If 17....Nd5?, then white will sac his bishop for g7 pawn!
Mar-04-06  blingice: <svbabu> And what does that lead to? The king is exposed, the queen checks, and the rook can't be mobilized with tempo, and it'll take two moves to utilize the knight.
Mar-04-06  yataturk: I think this is the second game that Recep came really close to winning by having a promoting pawn, but went away with a draw. Great fight though.
Mar-05-06  ahmadov: <yataturk> Let's pray for him that he wins today's game against Chucky with Black.
Mar-05-06  Jafar219: 'Teimour has missed one more chanse to win,he could be leader of the tournament but he is not lucky'

GM Shipov.

Mar-05-06  Topzilla: Thats a stupid comment, chess is not about luck is about those details, to be able to not only take advantage but to end the advantage precisely, to be able to play in time trouble....
Mar-05-06  Jafar219: <Topzilla> I know Lasker`s famous quote but I think Shipov is talking about general and if you knew Shipov you wouldn`t say that it is stupid comment.
Mar-05-06  ahmadov: <Topzilla> Being lucky or unlucky in chess is not being discussed long ago because every sane person understands that luck has certain place in winning or losing.
Mar-05-06  Fan of Leko: What does luck have to do with endgame technique? It isn't luck he is lacking, he just needs to be a little more consistent.
Mar-05-06  ahmadov: I would say the same if I were a fan of leko ;)
Apr-10-06  Nikita Smirnov: I think white could have won!
Feb-02-07  Whitehat1963: Here's another game worth analyzing for our battle with Shulman.
