Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-02-05  fgh: Well defended endgame by Kramnik. First, he puts a bishop on e4, and later he creates an strategic contact between the bishop and the black king. The rook guards the seventh rank and the white queen has no way to penetrate the queenside, so they did agree a draw.

  plang: Kramnik was critical of 6..Be6 which gives White a tempo to start an attack. 8..Bf7 9 Ng5..0-0 10 Nge6 would have cost Black material. White was building a large advantage until 20 Nxf6? Instead, 20 Ne5..Nd7 21 Nxf7..Kxf7 22 0-0-0 followed by f3 would have left Black in a precarious position.
