Mar-17-08  percyblakeney: <The position was drawish, but Ivanchuk kept fighting and kept the fight going with 59Bxf2 and 61Bxg3. The game ended in a fierce time-trouble tussle that Ivanchuk managed to decide in his favour. Trembling all over his body the winner walked out of the playing room to be awarded for his efforts with a kiss from his wife.>

Apparently Ivanchuk is remarried, I hadn't heard that before.
