Jun-25-04  WhoKeres: A great battle of tactics between the generations. In this case, experience prevailed. I'm glad to see the older version of Beliavsky still competitive in the FIDE World Championship tournament.

  Fusilli: Complex game. One of those that when you run it by the engine you discover that the GMs made too many "mistakes", if one defines as a mistake a move that is not the computer's preferred move... in most cases, an unfair assessment.

If anything, Beliavsky's problems seem to begin with 15...Re8 (15...Ndc5 would have kept the equality).

  typhoonsub: Very strong was 18.Nfd4! taking advantage of the lack of good squares of the black queen. For example: 18...Rab8 (White is threatening Rb1 winning a piece) 19.Rb1 Qd6 (or 19.Qa5 20.f3 Nef6 21.Bf4) 20. Nxg7! Rf8 21.Ngf5 Qf6 22.Qg4+ Kh8 23. Bxe4 Rg8 (23...dxe4 24.Bg5)24.Qf4 dxe4 25.Nxe7 Qxe7 26.Nf5 followed by 27.Bb2.

  ChessHigherCat: <LRamos: Next move would be 41 g3 winning the knight?> It's not so clear because black could play 41...R(c)c1 and if white takes either rook off the 2nd rank then black could force the trade with Rc2+. Maybe it's best for white to keep the R tied down defending the N and try to capitalize on mating threats with the black king out in the open

  ChessHigherCat: Correction, play 41...R(c)c1 and if white takes either rook off the 2nd rank then black could force the trade with Rf2+ (I must have a bad case of dyschexia)
