Oct-13-05  csmath: This is the first time I see two grandmasters playing anti-computer chess against each other! Comedy. :)

Everything for a draw. Well, this really isn't anything more.

Oct-13-05  John Abraham: This is a great defense from Leko.
Oct-13-05  csmath: The kick is he wasn't attacked. Maybe he didn't notice. :-))
Oct-13-05  Queens Gambit: This is Drewko.....
Oct-14-05  KarpowBG: A great game which shows that chess is not only home prepared 30 moves variants!!!
Oct-14-05  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 14 a4, 14 f4 takes the initiative on the f file.However it may fail to give enough after 14...exf4 15 Nxf4 Nxf4! 16 Qxf4 Bxc4 17 dxc4.
Dec-12-05  babakova: I think Leko thought; if he plays something theoretical,Ill be prepared...If he plays something nontheoretical Ill be at least equal and should not lose.
