May-14-07  notyetagm: Piket missed the winning 29 ♖f4x♗f6!, exploiting the <PIN> of the White g3-pawn by the Black g4-queen to the g2-luft square.

That is, 30 g3xf4?? opens the g-file so that the Black g4-queen covers the g2-flight square of the White f1-king so that 30 ... ♖h2-h1# is mate.

  plang: Pikets highly original and aggressive attack with 12..g5, 14..Bxc3 and 16..h5 should have been successful. One peculiarity was that his e & d pawns were still on their original squares until the final move in the game. Leko had thought that 26..Kd8 was unplayable because of 27 bxa..Rxf3 28 Bb6+..Ke8 29 a8Q+..Bxa8 30 Rc8+..Nd8
31 Rxd8# but realized that 27..Nc7
28 Rxc7..Rfxf2+ wins for black. Leko considered resigning but played 29 Qxd4 expecting the decisive 29..Rxf4 when mate is forced but after Pikets 29..Qf3?? it was Piket who had to resign after 30 Qxd7+!!.
