Feb-05-08  Arthur.J.Fizelbotom: Good play by Hodgson. 18. g4, exposing the king but rendering the bishop practically useless and containing blacks kingside. 35.Rc7 is a nice shot; of course, with black's kingside stifled there isn't much he can do, whites queenside pawns are bound to promote. I guess the 400+ rating points advantage Hodgson enjoyed payed off.
Feb-05-08  ounos: Of course, Black couldn't imagine the grave consequences of playing 14. ... Qg5. For the rest of the game, Black practically didn't have any counterplay.
Feb-05-08  Shams: why 24...Re7<?> surrendering the c-file?

  Gilmoy: Either Black deliberately offered up c to relieve pressure on f, or White was quick to replan and seize the new opportunity. At 24, White's triple on f7 has Black tied up anyways. Black pretty much has only a5-Na6 (but then a3 and the N still has no life), Ra7-Rc7 (it can't leave f7), or Kg7-Kg8. 24..Re7 allows Nd7 without blocking the Rook from f7.
