Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-26-07  Marmot PFL: It takes strong nerves to play a game like this! Maybe white shouldn't have played 49.Qxb4 and hoped for black to queen, so white can give up his queen for stalemate.
Jun-26-07  euripides: One of the most exciting and grand-scale Sicilians we have seen since 'Drawko' met the beast: Leko vs Kasparov, 2003
Jun-27-07  kingsindian2006: once again cool under serious pressure by white....hes getting warmed up in this tourney
Jun-27-07  controlaltdelete: Rublevsky missed that after 66..Kd1 he cannot place the black king in check anymore nor can he guard the queening square f1
