  plang: Kramnik had played 4..c5 and drawn against Kasparov at Tilburg 1997. This game was played in the 13th round and both players needed a win to have a chance at first. In the last round the next day Kramnik used the same set-up with White against Anand who played 10..d5 and drew clinching first place. 13..cxd had been played previously; 13..d5!? was new and a bit risky opening up the position for the two bishops. Kasparov could have maintained a slight advantage in the middlegame with 17 Bf5..Ne6 18 Bxe6..fxe 19 Rad1. Instead he liquidated to an endgame where Kramnik had doubled f pawns but where the winning chances for White were slight. Kramnik offered a draw after 21..dxc. Kasparov played on for awhile but never seriously threatened to win.
