  Albertan: At the time of this game the move 10.Qc3 was a theoretical novelty (which has only been played once by white in my database since this game).

  Albertan: If Bareev had decided to block the threat to his h7-pawn on move 16 by 16...g6 then play might have continued:

16... g6 17. Ne4 Qe7 18. Nxf6+ Qxf6 19. Be4 Bb5 20. h5 Rxd4 21. hxg6 hxg6 22. Bxb7 Rxd1+ 23. Qxd1 Rb8

  Albertan: Instead of 37...f5?! Bareev could have saved his a-pawn by playing 37...Rd8 and after 38.Ke3 (If 38.Ra4 Ke7 disck 39.Ke2 Rd5 40.Rc4 Kd6) 38...Rb8 (If 38...c5 39.Ra4 Ra8 40.Ke4 Ke6) 39.Ra4 Rb5

  Albertan: If Bareev tried to save his a-pawn by playing 38...Ra8 Kasparov could have continued the game by playing 39.b4 winning the Black b-pawn.

  plang: With 22 Qe5 Kasparov was satisfied to go into an ending with a positional advantage. Bareev was critical of 24..Rb8?! recommending 24..Rd2 25 Rhf1..Ke7 26 Kc1..Rd4 27 g3..f5 28 exf..gxf 29 Re3. After 30..Ke6? Black was in trouble; better was 30..Rgd8 31 f4..Ke6 32 g4..Rg8 33 g5..hxg 34 hxg..Kf7 with just a small edge for White. The final inaccuracy was 32..Ra6?!; 32..c5 33 Ra4..Ra8 would have been a tougher defense.
