Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-21-06  alexandrovm: ouch! white is tied down to the first rank by move 38. Black's activity proves to be decisive here.
Mar-21-06  Fan of Leko: White's best bet was probably to try to trade with 28 Qd5. He overlooks 28 Bd4? Nf3+! 29 Bxf3 Qxf5 30 Bxg7 Rxe4+ (Bxe4 Qf2#) and the king is on the run.
