Feb-04-05  thesonicvision: ...and black is obviously winning?
Feb-07-05  chesscookie: i don't get it either..
Feb-07-05  aw1988: Possibly a time win.
Feb-07-05  Backward Development: black's winning, but it's not bad enough to resign. Maybe the flag fell?
Mar-07-05  MoonlitKnight: Poluljahov has nothing left to play for. Defending against three passed pawns in the hands of a top-class GM should be impossible.

^ not too sure about that...
if black uses his pieces to
help push the passed pawns,
then his king will be exposed.
he can't be careless.

according to fritz 8:

(1.19)

so black is winning...but he's only
human.

Apr-29-07  TrueBlue: weird game, black played real bad, didn't deserve the win
