|Dec-01-07|| ||zluria: This was a pretty tense game. For a long time it looked as though Svidler was pressing for an advantage, but in the end he maybe overpressed and stood worse, although perhaps he wasn't in any real danger of losing.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||KnightOnEverest: looks like white misplayed after having a passed pawn on the a file ..|
|Dec-05-07|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I couldn't figure who was better, if either player was. To me, it was another one of those tough positional struggles where one side has these advantages, the other side has those advantages. each side thinks it has the upper hand, but it ends in another hard fought, well played, draw.|
I think I need a silicon monster to show me who was winning.
|Dec-05-07|| ||dabearsrock1010: i would say the position at move 48 just appears winning for white (without calculating anything), but perhaps its a draw all along...in the end, i dont think rublevsky ever had any advantage even though at the end he was up a couple pawns...i think svidler knew he had a draw the whole way at worse|
|Dec-05-07|| ||evenua: Wow. White is two pawns down at the end but after exchanging the Rooks White King will eat up two pawns, after which the draw is obvious. Interesting.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||newzild: It looks like black is struggling for a draw in the second half of the game, because white has "passers" on the a-file and h-file. But it's well known that bishops are much stronger than knights in such positions, and this helps black hold the draw. One drawing them is to sac the bishop for the remaining pawns, when white can't win with rook and knight versus rook.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||drpoundsign: I like wins better. they teach more|
|Dec-05-07|| ||Eggman: I like apples. They taste more good.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||xenophon: xenophon: <Eggman: I like apples. They taste more good.> surely if we're into newspeak that should be plusgood not more good.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||zealouspawn: double plus good, one might even say|
|Dec-05-07|| ||kevin86: This game reminded me of the novice eater who ordered an artichoke and began to peel the leaves until he had nothing left!|
White misplayed,black misplayed:result,a draw.

|Dec-05-07|| ||patzer2: For black the clever defensive move appears to be 54...Bd4! =.|
|Dec-05-07|| ||fm avari viraf: A hard fought battle with lots of tricky manoeuvring which unfortunately ended in a bookish draw.|
