Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-03  PVS: This seems like a very complex opening line. I am not crazy about 19...f5, but I see 25...Qf6 as the losing move.
Aug-07-03  PVS: Is Leko still married to Petrosyan's daughter?
Aug-07-03  Sylvester: <PVS: Is Leko still married to Petrosyan's daughter?> Does anyone have a link to a picture of them?
Dec-29-08  Jim Bartle: Yes, Shirov writes that 25...Qf6 led to an easy win for white, while 25...Bb3 would have led to a draw.
