Dec-30-04  Poisonpawns: Nice game by the young Kramnik! Moves 16 thru 20 are awsome the positional pressure reminds me of Karpov`s best games.20..f4! is just a backbreaker. All based on a misplaced piece (Ba3) amazing!

  knightfly: Why does white play 15.Rc2 and then back to c1 the next move? Is it because Kramnik is threatning f4 followed by Bf5?
May-29-06  Poisonpawns: <knightfly> good question,I think koch was worried about his Queen on d3 and rook on c2 being tactically harrassed at some point by a Bf5 by kramnik.
Jun-06-06  Kreifi: Why white gives the bishop away at end?
Jun-06-06  Poisonpawns: <Kreifi Why white gives the bishop away at the end> 39.Bh5+? It is just a blunder after the Kramnik moved the king either the Queen or Bishop would be lost.May have been caused by Kochs time pressure.
