Jul-04-06  suenteus po 147: In studying this game I have stumbled upon an interesting fact. While Adams has played the Bishop's Opening, the Four Knight's Opening, and the Petrov against Kramnik, he has never once with the white pieces played a Ruy Lopez against Kramnik. Is this something that someone has noticed before? Why would Adams as white dodge the Ruy Lopez against Kramnik when Adams plays it so often as a huge part of his opening repertoire?
Jul-04-06  Open Defence: maybe it has something to do with the Berlin ? btw this one is also named a "Berlin Defence"...

  acirce: <suenteus po 147> More interesting is that Kramnik has never ALLOWED the Ruy against Adams - he's either played 1..c5 or, after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3, 2..Nf6.
Jul-04-06  suenteus po 147: <acirce> It seems you're right. How interesting.
Jul-04-06  Open Defence: hmmmmm does Adam's know something in the Ruy we have not yet seen ?
Jul-04-06  aw1988: It's a very classical open, technical, and Adams is exactly that kind of player.
Jul-10-08  randzo: he drawams with drawko they look like matheatician
