  ajk68: Ouch. What a blunder!
Mar-28-08  t3hPolak: gah, poor Ivanov
Mar-29-08  MarkThornton: 32...Qf4?? is a terrible blunder, but I think Black was in trouble anyway.

33. Qd5+ and 33. Rf1 were powerful threats for White.

White's king, with no pawn cover, seems to be safer than Black's king, which has a little bit of cover.

On the face of it, a very powerful game by Yuri!

Mar-29-08  Brettwith2ts: Does anyone know if he was maybe in time trouble, or was this an honest mistake?
Mar-29-08  King Federer: Wasn't this the armageddon game?
Mar-30-08  Mac3: King Federer: Wasn't this the armageddon game?

Yes, after 33. Rxg6+ black decided there's no way "armageddon" out of this mess and resigned ;-)
