  patzer2: For a blitz game, this is strong and sophisticated play by Ivanchuk. He gets a small advantage with connected pawns versus isolated pawns in a Rook and pawn game, and then grinds down his opponent into the endgame.

Perhaps White could have held with 10. Bf4 =, 18. Bb7=, 20. bxc4 =, or 29. f6 .

Dec-19-10  jmboutiere: Black has equalised after 8 moves.
30.Be2 better than 3o.Bh3
37.Rd3 better than 37.Kd2
44.Kf4 better than 44,Rb6
