  beenthere240: You're right. Pawns are falling c5 or e5.
Feb-29-08  twostepper: How about Rf1?
Feb-29-08  TigerG: Did Ivanchuk flag yet?
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: fell asleep in a winning position. I expect we're running slow and the time controls have been met.
Feb-29-08  hedgeh0g: 5 moves in 0 minutes? Can Ivanchuk pull it off?
Feb-29-08  jtd200: Seems to me that 35..Rf1 would've won
Feb-29-08  Ulhumbrus: On 35...Rf5 White may play 36 Rd1
Feb-29-08  percyblakeney: Just 38. ... Qxg4 and black is winning?!
Feb-29-08  percyblakeney: Looks resignable for Leko now.
Feb-29-08  Ulhumbrus: On 40...Bd4 Black's Q and B are placed magnificently, although it is advisable for them to be placed effectively as well.
Feb-29-08  jtd200: Good job, Chucky... Way to keep the Caro alive. =)
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: Blacks pawns still look like a caro with the d5 hold.
Feb-29-08  Fiberking: Could somebody please share a life feed to all four games? The one on does not work and also does not yield much. Thanks.
Feb-29-08  Open Defence: well if Leko was hanging on till move 40 ...
Feb-29-08  krisxchy: Hi.Yes soloajadrz yield 0 zero there's nothing on the main event that I can find it keeps coming up with the minor events ????
Premium Chessgames Member
  fm avari viraf: Now, 41.Qh2 Qf3 threatening Qxa3+ & Qxg4 so 42.Qg3 Qe2 with clear advantage
Feb-29-08  krisxchy: Yes the live feed is not of much use I tried many times it keeps on giving the minor events ???

What was the hurry about taking the ♙ on f4? I would have played 34...Kf8. White's pieces weren't going anywhere.

That may get you the website.

  Domdaniel: 41...Bxe5 coming up, and if 41.Qb4 then simply ...c5. Black wins -- it may take some time, but chalk this one up to Chuky.

I have been trying it off and on for 3 hours without success.

Feb-29-08  hedgeh0g: <Domdaniel>, don't count your chuckens before they're hatched...
Premium Chessgames Member
  beenthere240: Leko is toast IMO. You can try to hold the e pawn with Q h2, but then black plays Q f3 threatening the Gpawn and if Qg3 offering a swap, then black plays Q f2 threatening mate and forcing Q h2 and the g pawn falls.
Feb-29-08  Open Defence: < hedgeh0g: <Domdaniel>, don't count your chuckens before they're hatched... > actually it should be don't chalk your chuckens before they're chucked

  Domdaniel: 0-1 to an Alekhine's and a Caro? Will somebody repeat the trick with the French and the Pirc (etc) before the tournament ends?
