Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-10  dakgootje: I wonder, was 27. ...Ke5?? really played or was it registered due to the kings being placed in the center of the board after the draw was agreed?

It simply loses by force to 28. Rxe7 Re6 29. Re3+ and white picks up a rook.

Feb-12-10  dotsamoht: Exactly what I was going to write.

No way he played 27...Ke5??

That would be a boo-boo against Bu.

Feb-12-10  dotsamoht: Strange thing is, I looked at the game on Chessdom.com and it also listed 27...Ke5. I came here to see if the same move was listed and it was.

No way...

Feb-14-10  Cushion: I suspect this was a prearranged draw so Khalifman didn't notice that is was a blunder of didn't care.
