Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-03  bishop: A sudden finish. Ponomariov, thinking that Anand would have to deal with his threatening Queen, must have been shocked at 28.Qf4! and it is Anand's Queen that will cause havoc first.
Feb-03-03  mdorothy: Ok, call me crazy, but I don't see Pono or Anand in this game...
Feb-04-03  bishop: Oops, substitute Nijboer for Ponomariov and Karjakin for Anand.
Sep-09-03  Cerebrate2006: I dont see the win here, cant you just get the queen off the file with one of the rooks?
Sep-09-03  ughaibu: How about: 28.....Rbf8 29.Qh4 g5 30.Ng5 etc?

  plang: A few rounds earlier in the same tournament Acs had introduced 18 b3 in his win against Van der Weil. In that game Black responded 18..hxg and had lost quickly; 18..a4 was new. 20 hxg would have been an improvement though after 21 Bxg5..Bxg5 22 Nxg5..Ra8 23 Na4 Black would not have had compensation for the pawn. The game ended quickly after 26..d5?!; better was 26..Nxc4 27 bxc..d5 28 Qf4..Rbf8 29 Qh4+..g5 30 cxd..gxh 31 d6+..Qxd6 32 exd+..Kd8 33 Rd4..h3 34 Ne5..Rf5 35 Re4 with a very poor endgame for Black.
