Sep-18-04  molinov: What do you think was Kramnik's plan. I mean he moves the queen to a6 the next move to a5 and the following one to a4?

  samvega: 22..Qa5 may have had the idea of 23..Bg4 threatening 24..Bxf3 25.Qxf3 Bxe4
Sep-18-04  maoam: <molinov>

21...♕a6 attacks the c4 pawn; 22.♗f1 creates the possibility of a discovered attack on the Black Queen, hence 22...♕a5. 23...♕a4 anticipates 24.g4 ♗e6 attacking the c4 pawn again.

  Poisonpawns: Dear chessgames this game should be under leningrad system (a87) right? Instead of Reti(a04)

  Poisonpawns: This was a highly stategic game alot of sublte play. I think Blacks problems start with 24..e5!?,but if instead d5 weakness of the e-pawn and the file get exploited in this line: 24..d5 25.g4 Bc8 26.Rde2 Ne8 27.Ne6 Bxe6 28.Qxe6 Rf7 29.cxd5 cxd5 30.Qd5 Nc7 31.Qc5 Qd7. So we see why Kramnik tried to break free with e5. So i go back to move 23 for a better way for black,23..Rb7 or Rb1 simply doubling rooks on the open file and not moving the center pawns. After 26..Bg7 Kramnik is just down a pawn, The best defense but inadequate is the amazing 26..Bf6!now chk these lines out! 26..Bf6!A)27.Red1?? Bxg5! 28.fxg5 Bc2!and white is lost! B)26..Bf6 27.Rxd6 Rbe8 28.Rxf6!! Rxf6(what if black takes the Queen? this is blacks best chance actually, the ending is crazy but here is a sample:28..Rxe3 29.Rxf8+ Kxf8 30.Bxe3 h6 31.Bc5+ Kg8 Kg7 loses!) 29.Qc3 Rxe1 30.Qxe1 and white is up a pawn and the bishop pair will haunt black later.

  Poisonpawns: This is definetly a Dutch leningrad(A88), and a fine one at that .Tony at his best.
Aug-29-07  birdplaya: Black's idea in pushing the b pawn in the opening is amazing. He should have played 17. ... Qc8 and then Qa6

  FSR: As I've written elsewhere, these Leningrad Dutch games are too subtle for me. Unfortunately, only the first 18 moves of this one are annotated in Chess Informant (47/141). It gives 17...Bg4?! 18.Rd3! small advantage White (why?) and suggests instead 17...Qc8! intending Qa6 unclear -- Kramnik, Ljubarskij. Neil McDonald, in "The Dutch Leningrad" (game 10, p. 36) analyzes the whole game and says that after 17...Qc8 it is quite difficult for White to meet Black's planned double attack on a3 and c4, since 18.Bc1 bxc4 19.bxc4 Qa6 20.Qe2 Be6 (20...Rb4!?) is awkward, and 18.c5? Nd5 or 18.cxb5 Nd5 19.Qe2 Rxb5 both leave Black's knight beautifully centralized on d5. Instead of Miles’ 14.Qe3, a note in Chess Informant 51/91 gives 14.Qd2! small advantage White I Ibragimov vs Kramnik, 1991 (although Kramnik won). I'm not sure why 14.Qd2 is supposed to be so great -- because it gives White the option of Qa5, maybe? Note that despite the ostensible superiority of 14.Qd2, White got less than nothing with it in Razuvaev vs S Kindermann, 1992 As for the Qc8-a6 idea, White showed how to meet it (to the extent of maintaining equality and drawing the game, anyway) in W Brandhorst vs A Kamenets, 1999

  FSR: <Poisonpawns> McDonald in the book I mentioned above gives 24...e5? since Black loses a pawn for insufficient compensation. He suggests instead 24...Rbe8 preparing ...e5.
