Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-11-10  yalie: heartbreak for the Turkish player. 121. Kh2 would have been enough for a draw (by the 50 move rule) just two moves later. 119..Rb4 appears to win easily for black.

Also white appears to have missed claiming a draw by 3-fold repetition around move 110.

Jan-11-10  Rama: Yes, tenacious play on both sides, longest game in the tournament. In fact black's 4-game total is 335 moves. Wow!
Apr-24-10  asianwarrior: Is it not that the last pawn move here is 57...axb4/ If so,black could have claimed a draw by move 107?
