Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-13-05  valerianus: Polgar does well to try 12 d3 instead of 12 d4, just to vary. But I don't think Svidler felt rattled in the least...
Oct-13-05  notsodeepthought: 30 ... Rg5+ was a nice touch, removing the King from the defense of the h2 pawn. This is exactly the type of Zwischenzug that I invariably miss (together with a lot of other moves).

  An Englishman: Good Evening: See what I mean? At this level, the Marshall is a great drawing weapon, but a poor choice when a draw means losing your last faint chance of winning the WC.
Oct-13-05  csmath: Why did Svidler play it?
He surely knows Judit accepts this on a regular basis. And she doesn't lose it. In fact she smacked this very Svidler in Corus earlier this year.
