  Calli: And not 28.hxg3 Rxf2! 29.Kxf2 Qxg3+ 30.Kg1 Qh2+ 31.Kf2 Rf8+ etc
Feb-28-04  matein8: I think that Kramnik's 26...f4 was premature. There wasn't enough compensation for the pawn. Shirov's light-squared bishop became more active and the tension bearing down on white's K-side was released. Perhaps Kramnik was counting on 28. hxg3? as Calli mentions. I think a better plan might be advancing the h-pawn at that point.
Oct-12-04  patzer2: One possible draw is 33. bxc3 Bxc3 34. Rxe8 Rxe8 35. Qc6 Bxa1 (not 35...Re1+?? 36. Rxe1 Bxe1 37. Qxe8+ Kg7 38. Qxe1 ) 36. Qxe8+ Kg7 37. Qe7+ Kh8 38. Qe8+ Kg7 = with a perpetual.
