  Mateo: 59...Qxc4 60.Bxf6+ Kg8 61.Be7 was obviously dangerous for Black.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: <chessic eric> I think Radjabov wanted to force ...Kg7 before he played c5 so the rook could not protect the queenside pawns.
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: (navara has 4 min. for 4 moves in a tight ending v. kramnik (who has 5 min for 3 moves)
Jan-16-07  euripides: <mateo> I referred to b5. Of course he may have made a gesture as well -perhaps at Topalov - but I have no information about that.
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: after 61...Bd6 Tiviakov is busted
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: 62...f5 seems to be the only move. Then 63.Qxf5.
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: Qxf5 followed by Bg3. Should be over soon.
Jan-16-07  suenteus po 147: Tiviakov is debating whether any hope of a draw is worth pursuing.
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: Kramnik headed for draw it seems.
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: Kramnik-Navara after 62...Rxg3

Jan-16-07  notyetagm: Navara drew his game with Kramnik.
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: Kramnik-Navara drawn
Jan-16-07  Marmot PFL: 65...Re6 66.Qd1 wins a4 (Qc6? Rxd6)
Jan-16-07  TheSlid: Does Tiviakov have a kind of fortress here with his rook on the 6th?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: Radjabov disliked 65.Bxe5 Bxe5 63.Qxe5 Qxe5 64.Rxe5 Rb6 65.Rxc5 Rxb2.
Jan-16-07  MyCatPlaysChess: 66.Qd1 b5 saves blacks pawn on a4
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: if radjabov doesn't want a4 with 66.Qd1, there is 66.Qg4+,Kf7 67.Qf5+,Ke7 68.Qxh7+ 1-0
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: 66.Qg4+ and Qf5 seems to close the curtains.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: I see, 66.Qd1 is a kiler winning the a pawn because of the tactical threat Rxd6.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: <MyCatPlaysChess: 66.Qd1 b5 saves blacks pawn on a4> 66.Qd1! b5 67.Rxd6!, 1-0.
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: 66.Qe2?? what is wrong with Qg4+? Is Radjabov toying with Tiviakov for not resigning?
Jan-16-07  suenteus po 147: Rather than play any of those moves, Radjabov essays 66.Qe2 for the draw :p
Premium Chessgames Member
  Mateo: <chessic eric: if radjabov doesn't want a4 with 66.Qd1, there is 66.Qg4+,Kf7 67.Qf5+,Ke7 68.Qxh7+ 1-0> Or 66.Qg4+ Rg6 67.Qd1.
Jan-16-07  MyCatPlaysChess: <Mateo: <MyCatPlaysChess: 66.Qd1 b5 saves blacks pawn on a4> 66.Qd1! b5 67.Rxd6!, 1-0.> Thanks! Missed the bishop fork after the exchanges!
Jan-16-07  chessic eric: i've heard of players setting the piece one square short of the correct square because of mouse problems, etc., but not at a 3-d board...
