|Feb-18-09|| ||GrahamClayton: Kramnik loses a rook due to the threat of 39..♖d2#.|
|May-27-14|| ||howlwolf: I think white has to take the draw after h5 with Rh7, 37...Kf4, Rf7+ and repeat the position; if white tries 37 Rc6 h4 38 Rc2 Kd3 wins the rook. Fascinating position and Kramnik is supposed to be the endgame whiz.|

Well, to be fair, Kramnik was about 14 years of age (at most) when he played this game.

Kramnik was fourteen when this game was played--it is reasonable to assume that he was far from the finished product of even two or three years on.
|May-27-14|| ||howlwolf: Chancho and Perfidious, That is an excellent point; didn't mean to be unfair to the lad.|
|May-27-14|| ||RedShield: Read a quote by Gelfand the other day about his first meeting Kramnik in 1989, when he was 13. Gelfand would've been 20/21, and he'd just won some important event, so he was feeling like the dog's bollocks. The young upstart, up for a session of the Botvinnik-Kasparov school challenged him to a blitz match. Boris generously offered to play 5 mins vs 2, and was soundly beaten.|
