  plang: 15..Qf5 had been played in the draw Piket-I.Sokolov at the 1999 European Team Championships in Bathumi; 15..Qe6 was new. The two players disagreed with the assessment of the position after 18..Kxg7; Kasparov thought that White had a small but persistent advantage while Leko thought that the game was easily drawn (in the post-mortem Kasparov was unable to demonstrate a clear missed win). Kasparov had been hoping for 22..Bd3 23 Nd4..Rxd4? 24 exd..Bxe2 25 d5..Nd4 26 c6..Bg4 27 Re1!..Ne2+ 28 Rxe2..Bxe2 29 h3..Bd3 30 g4 and wins. Lekos 37..f4! was the drawing line; instead 37..g4? 38 Ke5..g3 39 e7..Kd7 40 Kf6..g2 41 c6+ would have been winning for White.
