Jul-03-06  acirce: Quite an upset. Adolfsson has no FIDE rating but his national rating is 1735. Åkesson's is 2582.
Jul-03-06  suenteus po 147: A clearly superior player must always be aware of his opponent's drawing chances if there are no winning chances :)
Jul-03-06  notsodeepthought: Nice draw given the ratings difference, but I wonder if white could have pushed for even greater glory with 29 Rd3. I think the black knight has to move, and after 30 Rh3 the threat of 31 R:h6+ may be hard to stop.
