  Honza Cervenka: I guess that David disliked 19.Bxe4 Nxe4 20.Rxe4 Qf6 21.Rxe5 Rxe5 22.Bxe5 Qxe5 23.Rf1 g6 (see diagram)

but 24.b4! Bf8!? (24...Bb6?! 25.Nxh6+ Kh7 26.c5 ; 24...Bxb4 25.Nxh6+ ; 24...gxf5 25.bxc5) 25.Ne3 Bxb4 26.Ng4 still probably keeps slight edge for white and definitely is much better than the text continuation.

29...Nxf2 was certainly a surprize for Navara and his reaction to it was awful. In fact, the 29th move of black is not so great and for example 29...b5!? with idea 30.bxc5 Qxc5 31.Nc4 Rd4 threatening a4 or Qxb3 would have been objectively more promising continuation for black who had clear edge there. But by panick stricken David missed that he can play simply 30.Rxd6 Rxd6 31.Rxd6 Qxd6 32.Kxf2 Qd2+ 33.Kf1 where black has nothing better than perpetual after 33...Qd3+ 34.Kf2 Qd2+ etc. due to hanging Knight on f6. After 30.Rxf2?? black could have won even faster by playing 30...Rxd1+ 31.Nxd1 Ng4 32.Rf4 (32.Ke1 Rxd1+! and Qxf2 ) 32...Rxd1+! 33.Qxd1 Ne3+ but Ejsmont's continuation was (despite of some later inaccuracies) sufficient as well.

You just get like zero advantage from the KIA against a prepared opponent.

Jan-11-07  Towershield: 18.Be3 maybe.
Sep-09-11  Whitehat1963: Just noticed this enormous upset with black. Another for my collection!
