Jul-16-05  TruthHurts: Why does Bacrot accepts the draw here, at least he should push a bit with this extra pawn arriving.
Jul-16-05  FinKing: <TruthHurts> I saw this coming: 27...Qe2 28.Re2 (28.axb5?! cxb5 29.Rxb5? Ra1+! 30.Kg2 Qf1+ 31.Kf3 Qh1+ followed by ...Qxh2 and I canīt see any extra pawns here.) 28...Qf3 29.Re2 Qe2 and so on.
Jul-16-05  EmperorAtahualpa: uhhmmmmm......neither of the two is Armenian...???????
Jul-16-05  hintza: The Armenia team was actually made up not just from Armenians but also from players with strong Armenian connections. Leko's wife is Armenian.
Jul-16-05  TruthHurts: <Finking> yes I agree, I didn't take enough a look, your mooves are right...
Jul-16-05  halcyonteam: Where is the extra pawn <TruthH>?

White is under mating attack with the weak backrank, cannot afford to just grab the free pawn as he wishes...

Jul-16-05  mymt: <TruthHurts> I think in OTB "you move then offer draw" if thats the case then it was Bacrot who wanted the draw. 27. ...Qd5 28.Qxd5 cxd5 29.axb5 or 27. ...Qe2 28.Rd2 Qc4 29.Qxc4 bxc4 30.Ra1 was that the sort of thing you had in mind?
Jul-16-05  FinKing: Thanks <TruthHurts>. I just had a quick look so you can take a closer look and find something funny.
Jul-16-05  TruthHurts: I found something funny yes:

Leko drew a game where it was really a dead draw lol... No just kiding :).

Jan-29-06  Panda: Bad joke...
