Jun-01-07  Gouki: did Khalifman run into time trouble??

whats the winning line?

Nov-19-07  svbabu: He might be in time trouble or he just threw away a winning game!

Kasparov got a freebie!

Aug-07-09  Xeroxx: Black is totally winning.
Aug-07-09  dx9293: This was a rapid game. Every Khalifman—Kasparov game played at classical time controls ended in a draw.
Aug-07-09  kingfu: dx9293, what are the time controls for rapid games? I like Khalifman because he sacrifices material for positional beauty!
Aug-07-09  sheaf: Bd4+ is a threat and there is no effective way of countering it.Bd4+ kg2 Rf2+ discovered check etc...there is no counterplay..
Aug-09-09  dx9293: <kingfu> Rapid games are typically 25 mins for the game plus 10 seconds added after each move from, starting from move 1 (25+10), or 20+5. There might be some variations of this, but that's the basic idea.
