Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-16-07  acirce: Once again, the Petroff rules! Slight disappointment that Black never got any winning chances though - perhaps White players are slowly working it out...
Sep-16-07  savagerules: Truly inspired play by Svidler, repeats a line that Gelfand can play in his sleep and draw, at least Ulf Andersson must be happy about such a draw.
Sep-17-07  BlackNightmare: WAOW AMAZING DRAW I COULDNT SEE IT COMING. yellow cant be worse off
Sep-17-07  Resignation Trap: I'm surprised that Svidler didn't have more ideas prepared against Boris <Immovable Object> Gelfand in this opening.

This game follows Petka's victory in Svidler vs Bacrot, 2006 for quite a while.
