  Mateo: Did Serper lost on time? It is true that his position looks very difficult. If 27...Rxd4 28.Qh5! with a letal king side attack.
Jan-09-08  Sleeping kitten: Serper said after the game "I should have resigned on the 18th move but was afraid that spectators wouldn't understand."
Jan-03-11  AnalyzeThis: Don't see any way to prevent some setup for white involving g6 and heavy pieces on the h file.
Feb-20-12  JoergWalter: Kramnik's only win in Dortmund 1993.
Nice how he exploits 15....Be6?! with 16.Bxe6! and the total blockade of e5 with a straight forward attack on the kings wing. In the final position ideas like g6, Qh5, Rxf8+ and Qh7+ will wrap it up.
