Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-12-07  shr0pshire: Grishchuk was down on time, and this line seems to be has some promise to it, but very complicated to think out.

There was a lot of debate about this line at FICS....

16. ... Rxb2!? 17. Kxb2 Qxd5 (there is that pin so white can't capture the queen).

There are a couple potential lines now.

18. f4 Qb7+ 19. Ka1 Bf6 and black clearly has compensation and has a strong attack.

18. Rhe1 Bf5 and this isn't clear at all. Black has all of his pieces aimed at the white king, but is holding on by a thread.

It would have been really interesting to see this line played out. But I don't think Grischuk had the time to think this one out.

Jun-12-07  Marmot PFL: Probably nobody could calculate those lines to a conclusion in limited time, so much depends on the style of the player. I imagine Topalov would probably go for that attack, while a technician like Kramnik would take the draw and trust to his skill in the playoffs.
