Feb-27-06  patzer2: Pons has Leko on the defensive most of the game, but that is one thing Leko does really well.

The game is also an illustration of why computer assessments are not always trustworthy. For example, my computer program shows a winning advantage for Black after 59...Rxh7 even though the resulting ♖ vs. ♖ +♘ endgame is a known draw.

  louispaulsen88888888: Nice defensive effort by Leko. Also, patzer2, the R and Kt vs R endgame resulting after ...R x B would be shown by tablebases to be a draw.
