  Sularus: Mame's 28. ... Bd4?? did him in.
Nov-17-09  Manic: <Sularus> I don't get it. Simply 29...Bxe3 should be fine for him. 30.Nb2 is the blunder.
Nov-17-09  sarahbumter: 29...Bxe3 30. fxe3 Rxe3 31. Nf1 and the black knight dies. E.g. 31...Nb2 32. Nxe3 Nxd1 33. Nxd1.

  ajile: But Black doesn't have to play 30..Rxe3. After 29..Bxe3 30.fxe3 Black simply moves his Knight back.
Nov-18-09  A Karpov Fan: 21.Nd5!? c6 22.Nf4 is also good according to Fritz
