  refutor: to sneaky...this is a better example of the lisistin gambit (1.Nf3 f5 2.e4?!) in action :)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Chistiakov also beat Smyslov and Petrosian, so he had to be a little bit good, but this remains a major upset, and a pretty gutsy bit of play by White; he's down 2 pawns to a great defensive player for an awful long time.
Aug-13-09  sfm: So, why didn't Black play 46.-,d2 ?

Ah! I see.
49.Rcc7 and Black is done in.

  zanzibar: Both ICOfY and MillBase have this game with 33.Rcc2 instead of 33.Rec2.

They both probably got it from RUSbase, which also has the different move - 33.Rcc2.

Now, if 33.Rcc2, then 33...Kxb5 is best, which isn't played. On the other hand, if as above, after 33.Rec2:

we have another unplayed tactical, since Black's best play is 33...c4+, which is also unplayed.

So, I'm a little confused as to what move really did get played. But, quickly playing the other version to the end does suggest this score is correct.

Anybody know how to email corrections to Katar or Ingo? How about for RUSbase?
