  offramp: Superb tussle. Karjakin really does make things happen - for bad and worse - on the chessboard.
Jan-15-06  thomaspaine: At move 26, Gazza evaluated the position as a slight edge for white, but probably a draw.

  ketchuplover: I think Karjakin should've made Leko reach the 40 move time limit. Leko may have blundered. If anyone can show where I'm wrong go for it :)
Jan-15-06  Resignation Trap: I thought that I had seen most of this game somewhere else earlier. I was right! A few years ago a Bundesliga game Almasi-Sakaev followed this game for the first 20 moves, then Leko's compatriot tried 21.Qe2.
Jul-27-06  Confuse: i like how this queen sac ends up in a draw while moro slowly destroyed volotokin (?) with it just recently =P
Jul-27-06  Kwesi: Yes, Morozevich vs A Volokitin, 2006

One word: Leko.
