Mar-09-03  skakmiv: what about 26.Qg3?
Apr-16-03  StevieW: shakmiv,

Is 26 ...nf5 27 qf4 nd6 Ok for black?

26 .... ng6 27 Bxc7 rc8 28 d6 rxc7 is winning for black but I think other 28th moves for white will leave him better with the bishop and the passed pawn. Actually it looks that the bishop is being exchanged off in that line so black may be OK as well.

Apr-16-03  skakmiv: Yes, you are right..
Oct-31-03  billikid: leko has been quite a marvel player since his early days..somewhat in the calibre of a young anand,(although its not an exact comparison..but here,he faces his master anand and he can only benefit from his experience
Feb-15-05  Poisonpawns: 41...Rc1? was a weak move by anand allowing white to better position his rook.In these endings The defending Rook is best placed behind the pawn,if white runs the pawn to a7 he still cannot win because his king cannot find shelter on the queenside,black simply keeps his king on g7 and h7 and white cant make progress.Here Anand makes simple error and frees whites rook and loses rather quickly.Soltis-Regan 1978 U.S Championship has almost the same position,but the defender plays accurately and draws,hopefully chessgames will get this game soon.
Aug-13-05  euripides: 45...Rc4 is better, keeping the white king tied up, and if 46 f3 then 46...Rc2. The resulting position has been intensely analysed by Timman, Mueller (I think ? or Dvoretsky ?) and Leko.
Aug-15-05  Knight Pawn: How about 37 , 38, or 39 ... h5 for Anand fixing the kingside pawns? Then he could bring his rook up from behind white's passed pawn, and also attack white's f-pawn from a distance. White would have to give up at least one kingside pawn to support his passed pawn, and even then, black's king could enter and capture more material. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions/analysis about this move?
Feb-25-06  waddayaplay: <knight pawn> I think it was Bareev who analyzed it in Informator, and ...h5 was also the suggestion. ...h5 is the basic recommendation in endgame books about this position. I can't understand why Anand didn't play it.
