May-16-08  apexin: even in his older years great Tal has no problems drawing Kasparov
May-16-08  sallom89: i guess so, nice game overall.
May-16-08  Aspirador: <Tal has no problems drawing Kasparov> Not quite true because the pawn ending was a win for white. I think the variations were something like this:

34.Kf3! Kf6 35.Ke3 Ke5 36.h3 b6 37.b3 f5 38.f3 and white wins.

  Black Vampire: Aspirator, what after 37...f6!?. Now 38.f3 fails due to 38...f5!! I think Garry did it well. He just couldnĀ“t win the pawn endgame.
