  plang: Game 2 of their fourth round match in the World Championship tournament; after both games were drawn Polgar won the quick-play playoff before being eliminated by the eventual champion Khalifman. 13 h4!? was new; 13 0-0 had been played in a 1998 Kasparov-Kramnik blitz game. Zvjagincev's creative pawn sacrifice 14 g4!? sharpened the game quite a bit. Polgar, in return, sacrificed a piece with 16..Nc6!?; instead after 16..Bd7 17 Kf2..Qa6 18 Rag1..g6 19 Rg5..Nc6 20 Rhg1 White would have obtained a promising attack. Zvjagincev's 18 gxh?! returning material was not best; 18 Nf5 with complications would have been White's best chance to play for a win. 27..Rf8? 28 hxg..fxg+ 29 Ke3 would have given White good winning chances; Polgar's 27..e3! obtained the draw.
