  SteinitzLives: Leko had a couple of drawing chances at the end, he was real short of time though, and moved his king to the wrong square a couple of times.
Dec-20-14  fisayo123: Incredibly complex game. Like <SteinitzLives> said, Leko had several drawing chances but was unable to solve all the problems over the board.
Dec-20-14  coolconundrum: 17. Ra3, prepping b4, inducing c4, at which point the white pieces all find good homes. Very nice idea.
Dec-23-14  dumbgai: Leko tried to play for a draw in a winning position, and failed.

I liked it <because> it does nothing! Hah! Answer that!

  ajile: Black's backward d5 pawn isn't worth the play that Black gets IMO.

  patzer2: White's incredible play after 17. Ra3!? is joy to watch. However, for most novices and club players I think it should come with a warning: "Unless you're a Master or an Expert, don't try this in your local club or tournaments."

White's strategy appears to be to get Black to over commit and try and make something out of nothing, and then counter attack. It's not a bad strategy, but it takes a great deal of tactical skill and positional knowledge to pull off. Something way over my head, and I suspect over that of most club players.

From here (diagram above, after 68...Rh6! improvement) Fritz 12 analysis gives its best play as 69.Qg1 Qf4 70.Qd1 Rd6 71.Qh5 Kg7 72.e5 Qxe5 73.Qg4+ Kf8 74.Qh4 Ke8 75.Qg5 Rc6 76.Qg8+ Ke7 77.Qg5+ Rf6 78.Qg7 Rxf5 79.Qxe5+ Rxe5 80.Be4 Rxe4 (-2.37 @ 21/49 depth).

If 92...Qd2+, 93.Qc2 Qd5 94.Qh2 .
