Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-05  TheSlid: Tragi-comic ending.
Feb-16-05  coffee monster: I imagine Riazantsev was expecting the stronger 39.Kxf3 from Ivanchuk. 39...b5 is then an acceptable move, as after 40.Nd3 black has the escape 40...Rf1+. Ironically Ivanchuk's slightly loose play probably gifted him the win.
Feb-16-05  Hinchliffe: <coffee monster> You may well be right.Your theory seems like the most probably reason for such a blunder.We have all been there, see the initially threat, (usually knight fork) make a mental note, get distracted and then completely forget the first observation and ...golly gosh you are a piece down and the game is all but lost. It is a pity that this game had such an abrupt cocnclusion as it was nicely poised for a demonstration of end game play.
Feb-16-05  Chris00nj: Wow! It's refreshing to know that even GMs make blunders! I thought I was the only one!
