Oct-23-05  KingG: What?? 34.Qxg3?? Qa1+?? Was this a blitz game? How did Kasparov and Gelfand miss 34. ...Qxg3? Someone tell me this is a mistake!
Oct-23-05  aw1988: <AdrianP> You have Stohl's book; could you fill us in?
Oct-23-05  Assassinater: It looks like 23. Re3 may be the problem here. Is sure that the c rook and not the e rook came over?
Oct-23-05  Assassinater: Yes, playing it over, it should be 23. Ree3, not Rce3.
Oct-23-05  KingG: <Assassinater> Yes, that's what i thought. I've sent <> a message about this, we'll see what they say.
Oct-23-05  blackjacki2: <KingG> what do u mean by '34.Qxg3?? Qa1+??' ?
Oct-23-05  KingG: They are both horrible blunders. The sign for a blunder is ??
Oct-24-05  who: Well that attack fizzled. Games like these confuse me. I don't quite understand where the compensation for the sacrifices is supposed to come in, and then boom the sacrificer lost.
Oct-24-05  KingG: Ah, i see they've fixed it. That was quick.
<blackjacki2> If you posted after they fixed the game score, then my appologies. Previously it was 23.Rbe3, in which case the 34th moves are blunders.
May-25-09  Udit Narayan: wow that was embarrassing ;)
