Mar-12-10  TrollKing: Wow! Ivan brought the pain! Rybka 3 matches move for move beginning with 35. Rxh6 through 40. Qxe6+.

Rybka 3 prefers 40... Kf8 to Caruana's
Kd8.

Still, that whole combo was well above my pay grade.

Mar-12-10  kingsindian2006: wow this game had alittle of everything!! Exciting game!
Mar-13-10  notyetagm: Sokolov sure does love to sacrifice material for <CONNECTED PASSERS>.
