Mar-04-05  Helloween: <notsodeepthought> I consider it to be a ! move, since Black will get 3 pawns and an attack for the piece. Against an unbelievable defender like Leko, though, the decision may merely be !?

  crafty: 21. ... ♗xd5 22. exd5 ♗xf2+ 23. ♔h1 ♗d4 24. ♕e2 ♕c5 =   (eval 0.06; depth 13 ply; 150M nodes)
Mar-04-05  aragorn69: What is Fritz's take on the position 21.-Nxd5 22.exd5 Bxf2+ 23.Kh1 ?
Mar-04-05  samikd: sorry..whats wrong with Nd5 ed5 Bf2 winning the pawn ?
Mar-04-05  euripides: What about 21...Nxd5 23 ed Rxf2 24 Rxf2 Bxf2+ 25 Kh1 Bd4 threatening b2 as well as d5 ?
Mar-04-05  Catfriend: <samikd> who said it's wrong?! but maybe not the best. 21..B:d5 is possible as well, and maybe some queen moves as a preparation for an onslaught.
Mar-04-05  white pawn: Maybe Kasparov is looking for something better... he's got the time.

  Knight13: Hi guys!
Mar-04-05  notsodeepthought: <Helloween> I have to agree that Leko has done some seriously good defending (and not much else) in this tournament.
Mar-04-05  ChessMan94: This is an example of what would have happened if the match at Dubai would have taken place. Basically, Kasparov would have been crowned FIDE champion again... Kasim is no match for Kasparov.
Mar-04-05  TheSlid: Crafty throws a bucket of water on the bonfire!
Mar-04-05  Catfriend: hi <knight13>
Mar-04-05  karlzen: <Leko-Adams>, black practically has a perpetual whatever white does, except for: 22.Ba3 since 22...Rxe5 23.Rxe5 Qxe5 24.Re1 Qh2 25.Re7! now works: 25...Qh1+ 26.Kf2 Qh4+ (doesn't win Re7) 27.Kg1.

  Sneaky: < Kasim is no match for Kasparov. > You can't tell that from one game. Besides, White is fine here, it's not like he's actually losing this... right?
Mar-04-05  northernsoul: didn't expect Kasparov to give up one of his bishops
Mar-04-05  ArtNJ: His prep must have considered ND5. Assuming he recalls the analysis, he is probably just double checking, verifying and making sure nothing was missed. Most likely he did not consider the probable continuation.
Mar-04-05  TheSlid: Knight 13 - Long time no squeak. Hope the studies are going well. Nice to see you.
Mar-04-05  flamboyant: strange kaspy gave up his bishop pairs, he probably got something in mind

Mar-04-05  pawnstar3: fritz says -0.66 for black after that line
