Happy Boxing Day! Cool

I hope that everyone has had a great year, and I hope that next year will be just as good.

Anyway, here's a nice game to analyze. In the opening, Ivanchuk decides to sacrifice his queen. It is not clear whether or not he did this intentionally. In any case, Kamsky takes advantage and enters a favorabe endgame. But Ivanchuk, remembering the fifty-move rule, drags on the game long enough to claim a draw. Note his cheeky last move!

It would be interesting to see if Kamsky missed a win somewhere.
