  plang: Played in the last round; a win by Kramnik would give him a tie for first with Anand. In the previous round Kramnik, with Black, played 10..h6 in a draw with Kasparov. If 15..d4? then 16 exd..cxd 17 Qc2..a5 18 b4! with a large advantage according to Kramnik. After 15..a5, however, ..d4 was threatened. Kramnik kept a small advantage until 24 f4? which weakened his light squares; he recommended 24 Bg3 instead.
