  refutor: weak game by kramnik...are you sure this wasn't played by mrs. kramnik instead of vladimir kramnik? ;)
Nov-03-03  MoonlitKnight: He was 14.
Nov-08-03  apple head: It was The Vladimir Kramnik, ... doesnt matter how old u r!!
Nov-08-03  Bears092: Does it mean anything that I'm better at 17 than Kramnik was at 14?
Jul-10-05  California812: Im surprised this game was played by him, shows you don't have to be the best player in the world at a young age to become a champion. Im only 15 and Im better than that! There is hope for us all!
