  plang: Timman was critical of 14..0-0-0?!, Leko recommended that Black should play for kingside castling followed by ..f6 though White would maintain better chances here as well. 21 axb..g5 22 h5 would have given White better chances than the game. Leko had the opportunity for a powerful attack had he played 27 c5!..Nd5 28 cxb..axg 29 Rb5..Qxe5 30 Qb2..Ka7 31 Rb1..Rb8 32 Qb3. Instead Leko played c5 a move later when it was not quite as effective and the players agreed to a draw several moves later.
