Dec-26-08  percyblakeney: It's totally drawn and Inarkiev isn't even in time trouble when he decides that it's less fun to keep repeating with Qe1-e2 all the time and goes for 63. Qe3 instead.

At move 39 if Kasim had played 39...Nxg4 40.hxg4, then 40...Nxd5 would have been very bad, 40...Nxd5?? 41.cxd5 Bxd2 42.Qxd2 Rxb3 43.Rxh7! Kxh7 44.Rh1+ Kg7 45.Bc1!!(45.Qh6+? Kf6, although White still has the advantage after 46.Bc1 Ke7 47.Qg7!), and Black has no good way of preventing Qh6+ followed by mate. Instead 40...Qf8, renewing the threat of ...Nxd5 would be ok.

Later on 47...Qc2, retaining the extra pawn looks better than the 47...Qd7.

White (Inarkiev) has just blundered with 63 ♕e2-e3?, <LINING UP> his White e3-queen with his White g1-king along the dark-squared a7-g1 diagonal which can be controlled by the dark-squared Black d8-bishop.

Black (Kasimzdhanov) exploited this <ALIGNMENT> with 63 ... ♘h5xg3!, as the White f2-bishop must <BREAK THE ALIGNMENT> of White e3-queen and g1-king and so cannot also <DEFEND> the White g3-pawn,g3-square.

63 ... ♘h5xg3!

<63...Nxg3! If the bishop retakes Black has the skewer 64...Bb6.>

64 ♗f2x♘g3?? ♗d8-b6 <pin>
