Jan-27-06  euripides: van Wely seemed to be doing quite well here in the early middle game. From move 18 -30, Kamsky generates some very neat threats exploiting the position of the black queen and van W decides to trade the queen in. After that he seems to have a reasonable fortress but Kamsky manages to breach it. Sakaev thought that van W messed the ending up.
Jan-27-06  erimiro1: In my opinion, 44.-Bc7 is the losing move, otherwise it looks a draw, or at least white has to work hard even if black has to lose another material for the a pawn. For example: 44- Bf6 45.a6 b:a6 46.Q:c6 Re6; How many players (including GM's)can win such positions?

  Calli: Kamsky's final standing may not be as bad as looked a few rounds ago.
Jan-27-06  PinkPanther: Haha, hopefully Kamsky softened Van Wely up for tomorrow against Adams.
