Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-09  ajile: London System solid as a rock.

But equalizes rather easily for Black.
Still this is a good system for Kamsky which gives him chances to show his middlegame positional prowess.

Jun-23-09  arsen387: if 33.Nxg5 then Rb1 34.Qd2 Qc2! wins material, e.g. 35.Qxc2 Rxe1+ 36.Kf2 Nxc2
Jun-23-09  percyblakeney: Rogozenko gives 45. Nxd5 an exclamation mark and sees it is a winning combination but I wonder if his evaluations can't be doubted in one or two positions.

The winning line is given as <51.Kc5 Ne4+ 52.Kb4!! a5+ 53.Kc4! Nd6+ 54.Kc5 Ne4+ 55.Kc6 Nxc3 56.d6 Ke6 57.a3! Nd5 58.h4 Nf6 59.h5 and White wins> but engines just play 57. ... a4 instead of the immediately losing Nd5-f6 thing and declare it drawn after 58. h4 Ne2.

When I followed the game with Shredder it saw 43. Rg1 as winning in all variations when playing out the lines (could be wrong though).

  HeMateMe: Does Fritz find any extra chances for Kamsky, having several pawns against the lone Knight?
