Jun-15-08  talfan: Did Loek tried to win with Rxe6???
Jun-15-08  BOGGLED: That's what I was thinking too. I just don't understand it. Does 39...Kf8 work? 40.Rf7+,Kc8 41.Rf5+

Apr-20-09  Whitehat1963: Another excellent endgame win from Jakovenko.
Dec-22-12  qqdos: This game followed Grischuk vs Rublevsky, 2007 (B47) for 23 moves (with transpositions) and is analysed in depth by GM Sundararajan in Chess Informant 114. Rublevsky chose to take with 23...dxe5 and drew; instead of 23...Bxe5, which led to defeat. 25...Nf8, moving the BN away from d7, seems to have been a mistake. The BN is needed on d7 to protect b6, f6 and c5. GM Sunda prefers 25...Rf8!
