Apr-25-09  gorash: <The critical moment occurred unexpectedly. Leko carelessly ignored Whites powerful e5-bishop, although he could drive it away by 26f6! And then Svidler made a mistake by not calculating 27.Bxg7+! The analysis shows that it wins: 27Kxg7 28.Qe5+! (wrong is 28.N!f5+? Kh8!) 28Kg8 (also sad are 28f6 29.Ne6+ Kg8 30.Qg3+ and 28Kg6 29.Qg3+ Kf6 30.Re4!) 29.Nf5 f6 30.Qg3+ Kh8 31.Re7! Qxe7 32.Nxe7 Nxe7 33.Qc7!, and White has a decisive material advantage.>

31 ♖e1-e7! <INTERFERENCE> is what you have to see before playing 27 ♗e5xg7+! and is possibly what Svidler overlooked.
