Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-03  sleepkid: Vuckovic's 35. Rc6 is weak and spineless. Apparently after giving up his queen, he loses his head. (or perhaps time trouble, most of his moves after move 35 seem to have no plan whatsoever.) After 35.Rd1-g1 it's hard to see black gaining anything more than a draw due to the weak position of his king and the inability of his queen and rook to coordinate an effective attack while avoiding a perpetual check, or even a mate.
Jun-15-04  khammer: It looks like time trouble, the last couple of moves seemed a bit odd, almost panicked, one might say.

  Richard Taylor: I played into this variation as White today and my young opponent played 20...Qa7 which I think is better than Nakamura's 20....Qd8. He was a low ranked player but found a good move I think.
