|May-10-12|| ||Illogic: Seirawan squandering an endgame like this is a bit worrying.|
|May-10-12|| ||JustWon: Stick a fork in him and give him his lifetime achievement prize and lets move on. Great US player, a random russian|
|May-11-12|| ||Shams: He cracked the top ten once. Let's see your "random Russian" do that.|
|May-11-12|| ||Robed.Bishop: It's been years since I read Catch-22, but every time I see Yasser Seirawan's name I think of the book.|
|May-11-12|| ||Riverbeast: Depressing game for Yasser, he must have thought he could draw that endgame in his sleep|

agree, this game is kinda sad because you know the ending is dead even and seirwan should be able to draw this easy.
my pun for this game is:
"disasser for yasser"
|May-21-12|| ||RookFile: Hard to believe he lost this. An expert could make common sense moves and hold this.|
|Aug-19-16|| ||chessperson2222222: 37..Bg8??...
|Aug-19-16|| ||Honza Cervenka: Well, I would not call this ending "dead even". There were still many Pawns on the board, Pawn structure was not symmetric with majorities on opposite wings, and white's pieces and King were a bit more active and his Pawn majority was a bit more flexible and mobile than black's. Of course, with correct play black should not lose such an endgame but even one small imprecission can get him into troubles. I can agree that 37...Bg8 was a mistake but after 37...hxg5 38.fxg5 g6 39.h5 white still creates passed Pawn on the KS, and black is by far not out of troubles.|
