A sharp game took place between Gata Kamsky and Alexander Grischuk in round 3 of the Grand Prix in Thessaloniki. The Russian GM faced problems already after the opening. The danger for Black was continually growing and it was clear that Kamsky was getting ready for striking a decisive blow.  


24.c4 Better was 24.e6! Nxe6 25.Nxg6.
24...b3 25.axb3 Rb8 26.Rd3 Rb6 27.f4? Here, White should have played 27.Nxf7! "with all the ensuing consequences."
27...Nc6 28.Nxg6 
It's already late. After several moves you will know why...
28...fxg6 29.Qxg6

29...Qa2+!! 30.Kc1 Sure, after 30.Kxa2 comes 30...Nb4+ and the white queen would be lost, as well.
30...Qa1+ 31.Kd2 Qxb2+ 32.Ke3 Nf6! 33.exf6 Rxf6 34.Qe8+ Rf8 35.Qg6 Rf6 36.Qe8+ Rf8 37.Qg6 1/2
