Jul-05-04  shr0pshire: Poor Kudrin. Maybe the game just got too Booring for him. I doubt that, because Kudrin shamelessly tried to force Boor to make a mistake in teh endgame, where Kudrin was obviously outmatched.

12. Kf1! This is what gives white the safety his king needs to carry out his assualt on black. Nice thinking.

30. Nf5! nice double attack by Boor.

32. Rc2 is a nice waiting move that should be noted. It would be easy for Boor to keep with the attack, but wisely assembles his pieces to go in for the attack.

And just a nice overall endgame by Boor. His endgame shows why he deserves to win, because he keeps the pressure, and wittles away kudrin defenses.

A very pleasing game, and a win for the underdog.

Jun-05-12  Ghuzultyy: Very well played by white. Hard to figure out what black could do better here.

  perfidious: The grandmaster in this game was treated in very Boorish fashion.

This was, indeed, a nice effort by White.
