Jun-05-05  PARACONT1: 35.Ba3! seems a better choice, drawing the Q away from the K side. I can see an direct assault involving Ne4 a few moves ahead too, but as usual am too lazy to figure it all out. But maybe Winants missed a real chance for a famous win here.
Jun-05-05  Sydro: Fritz think white can win with 36.Nde4 but it doesnt like 35.Ba3

  whiteshark: <PARACONT1> 35.Ba3? is a bad move because black gets a strong counterattack on the c-file, as 35...Qxa3 36.Nxh6 Qe7! 37.Nf3 Nb5 and the treat of Rc3 or f6 and it's not clear how white shall preceed.

Whatever you've seen, you must have overseen :D

  whiteshark: The once in a lifetime you get such a position vs Karpov. Winants could have played either <36.Rxg7!!>
