Jun-18-04  acirce: After 39. Kh1 Bg4 Black has a virtually won position. I think Magnus was almost out of time at that point.

40. Nf3 Raxf3 41. Ra8 Rf2 42. Rxf8+ Rxf8 43. Qe1 e3 or 40. Qb5 Rxa2 41. Rxa2 Qd1 42. h3 Qxe1 43. Kh2 Qxf1 44. Qxf1 Rxf1 45. hxg4 e3

Jun-18-04  acirce: <gbenga ogunsakin> What do you mean? The actual game ends with move 38.
Jul-24-04  LIFE Master AJ: Excellent article on this game.

See the July (2004) issue of 'Chess Life' on page 36. (GM Michael Rohde's "Game Of The Month.")

Sep-19-06  midknightblue: 32. Kg1 is the improvement suggested by Aagard in his chapter on the sveshnikov in Experts vs the Sicilian. Here they state that white has an edge (certainly a nice material edge) and apparently he will be able to keep the king safe.
