Nov-28-05  lopium: Very nice game! Can somebody explain me the 32...e3 move ? Seems like a puzzle, very hard one in his simplicity. I just can't understand why not gxh5 or Rxh5... But why this e3 move.
Nov-28-05  ughaibu: e3 gives black a check on d5, if white captures on h5 he'll be mated.
Nov-28-05  lopium: Oh yes I see, very complicated, with the d8 rook coming on g8, if gxh5. Thanksxz!
Jan-13-06  aragorn69: Great battle, won by Kramnik ! 19.-f5!? initiates a tough tactical melee, concluded nine moves later by another f5!, effectively winning a piece.

Since it's pretty complex, however, I'm not sure a computer would not find one or two holes in this game...
