Feb-15-05  Poisonpawns: This should have been a draw,but black wasted many tempi at the end of the game but it may have been due to time trouble
Dec-18-05  Confuse: interesting end game!

one of those rare times u need to get a knight with that pawn. its too bad theres no situation where u'd rather have a rook or a bishop then the lady.

  plang: After a draw in game 1 this win clinched the match for Akopian in round 4 of the World Championship tournament; he went on to defeat Movsesian and Adams before losing to Khalifman in the finals. 9..Be7 was new; 7..Bd6 had been played in Krasenkov-Gelfand Polanica Zdroj 1998 (drawn). In his Endgame Manual Dvoretsky provides extensive analysis of the ending arising at move 34. While theoretically drawn extreme precision is required by Black to split the point. Georgiev lost several tempi which ended up costing him the game. 38..Ra3+? chasing the king towards the queenside was illogical; 38..f6 followed by 39..g5 would have been better. 43..Ra4? was a poor move (43..Kg6 or 43..Ra2 would have been better) as after Akopian's 44 a6 44..Rxh4 would have lost to 45 Ra8..Ra4 46 a7..Kg7 47 Kb6..Rb4+ 48 Ka5.
