Let's try to analyze the critical variation in DB-GK game 2. The move is
36 (axb5 was played, don't confuse it with move 37).

The variation to look at is after 36. Qb6 Qe7 37. axb5 Rab8 38. Qxa6 e4
39. Bxe4 Qe5. What does Black have here ?

At ply (or whatever) 10, DB gives this PV:

Qb6 Qe7 axb5 Rab8 Qxa6 e4 Bxe4 Qe5 Bf3 (at lower depths it tries g4) Bf3
Rd8 Qa7 Qxc3 Bh5 +0.74.

At ply 11, there is no PV and the eval is +0.48.

This variation was mentioned by Seirawan in his analysis, and the GK
team used Hiarc & Fritz to analyze it to death.

Junior, by the way, likes an intermediate 37...a5, which creates the
same position but with Ra2 misplaced.

What do you make of this ?
