Jun-06-05  Medusa: I dont understand why Adams didnt resign like 40 moves earlier, its was obvious that Leko wouldnt have blundered here leaving his king for eternal draw, nor loosing the chance to make his second queen, i think even me, a beginner would have played the same 40 moves Leko played when he got a winning position.
Jun-06-05  mohd rafi fan: How pathetic! Adams has an easy draw at hand but tries to go for the win...and loses.
Jun-06-05  iron maiden: Poor super-GM's. Take a safe draw, and the fans are unhappy. Decline a safe draw and lose, and the fans are unhappy.
Jun-06-05  mynameisrandy: You said it, Iron Maiden.
Jun-07-05  e4Newman: adams' king's knight was ready to do the "4 moves to the once removed diagonal" hole, only to be captured on move 16
