Apr-05-07  TommyC: Kramnikian finish. Uncanny.
Apr-15-17  cunctatorg: There are a few positions in this game where I fail to understand the move of the player, either M. Gurevich or G. Serper.

To start with: I don't get 46... Bh7?!? 47. Qxh7#. I guess that Black was in some kind of zugwang, say 46... Rc1 47. Ng6 Kh7 48. Ne7 g6 ... and then what? Positions with quite demanding tactics...

Apr-17-17  cunctatorg: Not working with chess software, I still wonder about the necessity of a few moves, a necessity though that both GM seem to accept perfectly.

To start with: how White is winning after 46... Rc1 (instead of the resignation move 46... Bh7) 47. Ng6 Kh7 48... ?

Apr-17-17  cunctatorg: Perhaps 46... Rc1 47. Ng6 Kh7 48 Nex g6 49. Nxc6 gf5 50. Nxa5 but is this position's evaluation justifying immediate resignation?!? I don't think so...
