  Mateo: Although the material was balanced until move 34, Kamsky had a big edge, because his Rooks were much better placed. 35.a5? leads to a quick loss. In order to stop the threat 35...Rb1+ followed by 36...Rbb2, the only move was 35.Rb5. But after 35...Rxa4!, Black wins a pawn. However with all the pawns on the same wing, Hess may have some drawing hopes.

29.Bf6 better than 29.Nf5
35.Rb5 better than 35.a5
