Oct-07-05  CeeFoR: Great endgame!!!
Nov-27-06  Ch3ckmate: after wachting a few of kasparovs great games before i got bored seeing this one
Oct-13-07  Silverstrike: Why not 41.Qxd5 ?
Feb-03-08  Cactus: What move makes this the 'Kramnik Variation'?

Feb-03-08  percyblakeney: <Cactus> I guess it is 3. c4, even if Kramnik only seems to have played it in this rapid game. I think it is Eric Schiller's terminology that is used for these variations, maybe some of them are disputed but I have no idea about this one.
Jul-12-08  randzo: it is something like Moroczy bind variation
Dec-10-12  technical draw: <Oct-13-07 Silverstrike: Why not 41.Qxd5 ?>

Five years later I'll answer: The rook on b1 is hanging.

Feb-22-15  Eric Farley: Of course the game Kramnik x Carlsen, 2010 isn't in this collection. Kramnik blundered in an elementary ending of B+2 pawns vs 3 pawns. He blundered twice. To use the word "prowess" is questionable. As far as endings are concerned the word in question should be used for Capablanca or Rubinstein, but not for contemporary players and others not so contemporary like Kasparov( a notorious endgame blunderer)

"A famous cavalcade of grave errors."

There is no one who doesn't screw up an ending from time to time. So if someone plays hundreds of endings, you will find some bad ones. But when you look at their overall performance, you figure out who the great endgame players are. Kramnik is one of the great ones.
