Aug-09-10 potkin better gave the exchange back with 22.Rxd3 cxd3 23. Qxd3
Aug-10-10  Don Cossacks: 22.Re2? White really had to give the exchange back with 22.Rxd3 cxd3 23.Qxd3 and while a bit worse, should be able to hold. As it is, the knight left on d3 is just too to be left as is.

  whiteshark: Petrosian probably wouldn|t have given it a moment's thought.
Aug-10-10  CapablancaFan122: Potkin should have given the exchange back, but 23. e4 seems to cause his subsequent problems.
Aug-10-10 <CapablancaFan122> but in fact, what should he play? there is no other moves left...?!23...Nhf4 could follow anyway
Aug-15-10  piteira8: How long will Russia remain the pre-eminent chessplaying nation? It appears that this question is moot.

There are 28 players in Russia that are higher rated than Potkin though, while Wang Hao is China's #1.
