Feb-16-05  Poisonpawns: Great game! terrible endgame play by Kamsky, pressing too hard to win when it was a draw.46.c4? Cost him the game i think when he could have played c3 and just exchange pawns.
Sep-18-07  Jim Bartle: An article I read said Kamsky's error was on move 26, gxf6 instead of Bd3.

Kamsky is lost. He could try 64 Bb3 but the result is the same: 64..Kd4 (simplest but 64..Bd7 65 h4 gxh4! also wins) 65 Kg4 Kc3 66 Bd1 Be4 67 Ba4 Bc2 68 Bd7 b3 69 Be6 b2 70 Ba2 Bd1+ 71 Kxg5 Kb4! (again simplest to get the K to a3) 72 Kf4 Bc2 73 Ke3 Ka3 -+
