Qe2 h5 Maybe he will slip up at last?! Ne3! Morozevich regains the material. Rxe1 Nf6, followed by h5-h4, White’s flanks are weak, and Black can count on a heavy pawn crop. Be5, but don’t forget that a draw can well satisfy Gelfand. Rxf5 Re2!? An effective transition into the ending without a pawn. But Boris has correctly evaluated the resulting rook ending. Qf1+ Qf6! Rb7 a5 with a draw. Rxd6 Rf2 The necessity of protecting the g2-square prevents White’s second rook from actively participating in the game.

White has already gained an advantage. f6! g5! f3 Nc6 Now it looks like equality. But the fight is continuing with the same tension. Kf4 Rc5?! And this was done in vain! He should have accepted a draw. f5 The white pawns have become too dangerous. Black is living through hard times.

Nc3 White has positional compensation. But it is unlikely to suffice even for a equality. However, this can be hardly proved in the game against Shirov. Bg2 a5! b5! With the exchange lost, there is no point in crying for the pawns! 0-0 Rd8?! Qe2 Qa6?! Rxb5 Alexey has managed to confuse his young counterpart. White has already gained an advantage. f6! g5! f3 Nc6 Now it looks like equality. But the fight is continuing with the same tension. Kf4 Rc5?! And this was done in vain! He should have accepted a draw.
