Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-28-04  yorkebrazil: <Svidler said he was happy that Dreev did not play the Caro-Kann. Naturally, Peter feels better in Sicilian. The players castled on opposite wings, but Black’s only achievement was to get White to weaken his king with 17.b3. Svidler developed a strong attack utilizing Dreev’s few mistakes and obtained a winning pawn endgame, twice missing a forced mate.>

Where is this forced mates?

Nov-28-04  acirce: Probably thinking of 32.Qh6 and 35.Qd6, although strictly there is no immediate mate
Nov-30-04  themindset: i think 35.Qd6 would be a mate in 16 or something.

quote of the game..

"Here I quickly played 32.h6 only to see Alexander Morozevich looking at me as if I'd suddenly grown a third arm."

- GM Peter Svidler

...Svidler missed 32.Qh6! with a threat of mate 33.Qh8 but could be defended well with 32...f6, white is clearly winning anyway.
