Sounds like an old-time monster movie, and the game covered therein almost becomes that at one point. Kaidanov has White, Onischuk has Black, and the battle between White's attacking prospects and Black's attempts to blockade remains in an exciting balance for a while, but then the floodgates are broken. I think you'll find the game exciting and instructive, and since the video is free (free registration required), what are you waiting for? (Okay, you don't have to rush too much, as it will be available on-demand for a month. But why wait?)

Mea culpa! I thought the match ended in a 2-2 tie, but it turns out Judit Polgar and Gregory Kaidanov had a blitz playoff. Games 5 and 6 repeated the usual pattern, with White winning both games - first Kaidanov, then Polgar. Finally, they went to an Armaggedon game (Kaidanov had White and six minutes, Polgar Black, five minutes and draw-odds.) Polgar won the game and thus the match.

With her (convincing) win in game 4, Judit Polgar drew her Sicilian theme match with Gregory Kaidanov. All four games were entertaining and won by White, and they make the prospect of subsequent theme events attractive. (These kinds of events used to happen with some regularity in the early 20th century, but apart from correspondence chess very rarely nowadays.) Here's the final game of the match.
Linares may be the main event, but it isn't the only show in town. To single out just two events, there's an online match between Gregory Kaidanov and Judit Polgar and a match between Sergei Movsesian and young (15 or 16) Polish GM Dariusz Swiercz (HT on the latter to Kajetan Wandowicz).
