Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-15-12  Everett: Yasser is able to stuff Judit's q-side counterplay and orchestrates a breakthrough in the center. By move 37 there is a very interesting position on the board that at first glance is winning for White, with his two outside passed pawns and tight K-side position.

One missed opportunity for Yasser is <63.b6> I don't see how Black can survive. Unfortunately Yasser felt he needed the R to promote safely and left his K airy enough for Black to find a perpetual. In fact <64.b6> still wins, but 64.Rd8 throws it away. Must have been frustrating...
