  Peligroso Patzer: All-in-all, this was a terrific game. For the record, I note that the score here on includes one full move (79. Kg1 Be4) in addition to what originally appeared on the official site:

Knowing that Bruzon apparently did play 79. Kg1 before the draw was agreed, I am surprised that Volokitin did not at least give 79. ... Ke3 a try. Then 80. gxf3 Kxf3 81. Kf1 draws routinely (82. ... g2+ 83. Kg1 Kg3 stalemate), but at the end of a long, tense playing session, why not give White the chance (after the recommended 79. ... Ke3) to blunder with 80. Kh1?? This would allow Black to win as follows: 80. ... Kf2 81. gxf3 g2+ 82. Kh2 g1Q+ 83. Kh3 Qg3#. It is all pretty obvious, but Bruzon had to be tired, so why not play one more move and give him a chance to go wrong?

Exactly the same as the game Serper-Nakamura 2004.
