Jul-15-08  visayanbraindoctor: Sutovsky - Wang Hao was another interesting endgame. With 33... e5, Wang initiated a plan to create an outside passed pawn, which he actively supported with his bishop. In the position where he played 33... e5, he probably noticed that White's opposite colored bishop would not be able to get to the kingside on time.

I also liked the way Wang steered the middle game into an endgame in which he had three pawn islands against white's four pawn islands, starting with 20... Rxg2. He must have assessed the ensuing endgame as very favorable for him. Four pawn islands are hard to defend, and Wang was eventually able to capture the h3 pawn (34... Bxh3), a move that secured him the win.
