  Mateo: A sharp and double-edged middlegame. Vaganian sacrificed a piece with 32...Nxe3?, which, I think, was not completely correct. Instead of 33.Qf3??, actually played, 33.fxe3 Qxe3+ 34.Kh1 Bxf4 35.Rf1 Kg7 (35...g5 36.Qxg5 e5 37.Bd5+ Ke8 38.Qg8+ Kd7 39.Be6+, White wins) 36.Qxf4 Qxf4 37.Rxf4, White has a Rook vs 4 pawns. Maybe Black has drawing hopes but no more.

  zydeco: <Mateo> Nice analysis. Vaganian miscalculated something and Korchnoi didn't spot the hole.
