  vonKrolock: <tacticsjokerxxx: or 25...Qh4?> White's immediate threat is Pawn to b4, so better 25...Qb7, but then mass exchanges will take place whith a dead drawn situation arriving...
Nov-17-04  Dionyseus: 25.Bc4 allows for Ne4

As for 25...Qh4, play might continue as 26.Nf3 Bxf3 27.Bxf3 Rcd8 28.b4 Nd7 29.Rc4 Qg5 30.Be2 Nf6 31.Rc6 Rd2 32.R6c2 Rxc2 33.Rxc2 a5 34.Rc6 axb4 35.Qxb4 Nd5 36.Qb2, and looks like it's a draw.

  vonKrolock: <25...Qh4>Yes, i'm seeing that Q+N+B are menacing an attack, but White can plainly snatch a Pawn whith: 26.Ba6 Ne4!? 27.R3c2! and holds the position

  cu8sfan: <saka tichizoti dzaperawo futi idzi!!dzoorowa naRustam gorerinouya> Sounds like a <sourcerer>'s spell to hex the players! (-;

Nov-17-04  Everett: <sourcerer> What moves are you talking about? My apologies for not knowing the language you seem to be speaking, though it seems your English is fine. What moves are you thinking can be improved?
Nov-18-04  razyullavich: this is one of the grate games that i have done

  acirce: <Vitaly Tseshkovsky commented: “Well done, Korotylev! You dried Kasparov out completely... I never play like that. I always give my opponents an opportunity to express themselves.” Indeed, Tseshkovsky is definitely one of the most exciting players of the event.>

Well, also one of the worst both rating- and resultwise, and giving Kasparov "the chance to express himself" doesn't generally sound wise. Even though Kasparov has seemed to be much less ambitious as Black for a while I expect him to try hard today and be disappointed if he doesn't bring home the full point.

Mar-13-05  aw1988: <vonKrolock> Um... 26. Bxa6 Ne4 27. R3c2? why not just 27. Rxc8 winning a piece?
Jun-28-09  Knight13: This game probably convinced Kasparov to further ignore the Queen's Indian Defense in his opening repetoire.

Compliments to the 2596 guy for successfully playing it safe!
