  offramp: White had a lot of queen side pressure and black had to give up the exchange.
Jan-15-06  Steppenwolf: 35 Rd5! is a good puzzle move.

  Ron: 35. Rd5 indeed seems to be the best. If black takes the rook with either his bishop or rook, then white will eventually queen a pawn. And, the game continuation led to a simplification with white already being up in material.
Jan-15-06  SimonBrazil: from the official site:

French GM Bacrot had a comfortable win against Tiviakov. The Maroczy bind isnít a popular guest at the very high levels, and today we saw an example as to why. White didnít have to do anything spectacular, but with simple moves got an edge Ė especially menacing was his Nc6 Ė enabling the advance of the a pawn, all while black was deprived of counterplay. Even the exchange of queens did not bring relief. Tivi tried to give an exchange but to no avail, as Etienne saw further and sprung the hope-crushing 35.Rd5! (see diagram 3), winning quickly.

Jan-16-06  miguel12: Call me ignorant, but is 7 Nc2 a book move in the accelerated dragon? And if so, what is it's prophalactic purpose?
Jan-16-06  Koster: It's played to avoid exchanges that could ease black's cramped position. I would play Be3 instead so as not to lose time, but Nc2 is logical.
