Sep-08-05  Raskolnikov: After the 26th move white is clearly better: he is a pawn up, black has no counterplay. But after 27.♗h3! Yudasin could give up: the threat is ♕b5 and ♖a7 and black can do nothing to prevent this.
Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: This is Game 1 of the Canidates Match in Riga Ivanchuck won 4 games with 1 draw.14..b5? is the cause of blacks troubles,feeling a bit cramped and wanted to get active he gets crushed 14..f5 or f6 probably are the moves here.15..Ne5? is also suspect,black is lost already right out of the opening,the only try here is 15..Bxc3 16.Qxc3 axb5 17.Na5 b4 white is better but the game is long from over.Moves 27.Bh3! and 28.Qb5! are brilliant examples of the mind of Ivanchuck at work,He literally threatens to checkmate the queen! with Ra7!
