  Peligroso Patzer: At this time (approximately 1-1/2 hours after the conclusion of the first session of today's round), the official site ( ) has the result in this game posted as 1/2-1/2. Is it possible that is correct? Vallejo looks to me to have a clear edge in the final position, but I certainly do not know for sure whether it is winning.
Mar-27-07  cannibal: The result is correct, I think (Moro wouldn't resign in the middle of a move repetition). On the other hand, I couldn't find a defense for black after 52. Kd5. Doesn't mean there is none, but at least it's not the kind of position where you offer a draw as white. Maybe Vallejo didn't remember the position correctly (for example, he might have forgotten he had a second pawn on g2. )
Mar-27-07  slomarko: Vallejo literaly had second on the clock, he just didnt want to risk a blunder.
Mar-31-07  Avarus: 47.Rc6 wins easier (I'm assuming the end position wins)? with something like:
47..Rxc6 48.bxc6 Kd6 49.Kd4 Kxc6 50.Ke5
