|Oct-28-03|| ||rndapology: Anybody have any idea what Kramnik was contemplating here. It looks like an amusing set of blunders to me. Including that delicious pin. |
|Aug-09-04|| ||Bobsterman3000: Kramnik ought to know that you can't go pawn grabbing against Kasparov like this and live to tell about it... |
|Nov-21-05|| ||Unicornio: What a beatifull Nf3 game of Kramnik <KingG>!!!|
|Jun-08-06|| ||KingG: <Unicornio> You have serious problems.|
|Oct-30-06|| ||AliMatok: For me, Kasparov is still stronger than Kramnik. Even if Kasparov lost to Kramnik in their match, Kasparov holds that title for how many years. I really don't like the looks of that Kramnik. Kasparov FOREVER.|
|Oct-30-06|| ||Lt. Col. Majid: <AliMatok: I really don't like the looks of that Kramnik. >|
That says it all.
|Oct-30-06|| ||positionalbrilliancy: I think most of us can agree that Kaspy is stronger than Kramnik, but as <Lt. Col. M> pointed out, your opinion is obviously biased.|
|Oct-30-06|| ||aw1988: <I think most of us can agree that Kaspy is stronger than Kramnik, but as <Lt. Col. M> pointed out, your opinion is obviously biased.>|
And yours is uninformed... you can't say 'I think most of us can agree' because that isn't necessarily true. Kramnik is according to many people no weaker than Kasparov. (Less conspicuous but no weaker nonetheless)
|Oct-30-06|| ||positionalbrilliancy: <And yours is uninformed...Kramnik is according to many people no weaker than Kasparov.>Is this not the same thing in the fact it can be categorized as uninformed information, or information without factual statistics(?)
.><Kramnik is according to many people no weaker than Kasparov.>Surely I must be missing some critical point here...|
|Oct-30-06|| ||aw1988: <uninformed information, or information without factual statistics>|
In any case it isn't truly correct... in any case in purely mathmatical terms a survey would have to be taken. I of course am going by my own uninformed information simply judging from the posts on this site, but I feel it's relatively accurate with a small survey...
|Nov-15-06|| ||AliMatok: Yah Kramnik is no weaker than Kasparov but of course Kasparov is better than Kramnik for sure. Which is which???|
|Nov-15-06|| ||shintaro go: <Yah Kramnik is no weaker than Kasparov but of course Kasparov is better than Kramnik for sure. Which is which???>
Most people, if not all, will view Kaspy as the better of the two, and rightfully so. Kasparov dominated EVERYBODY. My position is that Kramnik was the one whom Kasparov dominated the least.|
|Jan-27-07|| ||druby: Why was 29. Rd5 played after 28. ...b5?|
|Mar-21-07|| ||legija: does anyone here think that kasparov would make a blunder like kramnik against fritz???mate in one....and he is the champ...more a chimp...mate in one....|
|Mar-21-07|| ||KamikazeAttack: <My position is that Kramnik was the one whom Kasparov dominated the least.>|
Well, your opinion is very wrong.
Kasparov never dominated Kramnik.
|Mar-24-07|| ||legija: the stile of Kramnik doesnt suit Kasparov, every player has his "black cat"....kramnik often has problems with Anand for example...and kaspy never had any problems with Anand...|
|Mar-24-07|| ||KamikazeAttack: <kramnik often has problems with Anand for example.>|
This is an exaggeration. Apart from the fact that Kramnik has a better head-to-head score against Anand, when u play thru most of their draws (when Kramnik was fit) u can tell who was more in control & it ain't Anand.
|Mar-28-07|| ||legija: but look what is the score between kaspy and anand...percentage is much higher...|
|Jun-13-07|| ||nolanryan: 13 .. Bd7 appears to be an improvement on the 13 .. Bh6 attempted in Petrosian vs C Kottnauer, 1968|
This way white can't b4 until after some preparation
|Jun-23-07|| ||Atking: An strong opening preparation from Kasparov Still I prefer Black 28.a4 seems to me playable. Kramnik clearly blundered here. Time pressure?|
|Jul-24-07|| ||Whack8888: <legija> Kasparov did make a terrible blunder, but it was in his match against Deep Blue. He played a bad opening variation of the Caro-Kann, playing h6 prematurely and ended up losing the game in 20 moves or so.|
|Mar-13-08|| ||hedgeh0g: <Whack8888>, that can hardly be compared to missing a mate in one and a noob mate at that.|
|Dec-31-08|| ||whiteshark: <Atking: <...28.a4 seems to me playable. Kramnik clearly blundered here. Time pressure?>>|
It was the final of a rapid tournament (Grand-Prix-Series) with two games of 25 minutes per game. If tiebreak - like here, 2 blitz games with 5 minutes.
So within seconds Kramnik lost some 45,000 US$ price money.
