Jul-28-05  Whitehat1963: Interesting game. Can someone spot a missed opportunity here?
Mar-09-08  positionalgenius: Nice game
Dec-15-14  engineerX: Kasparov has annotated this game in great detail in Informator 83. He thinks 24.b5? is a mistake and he should play 24.Nb3!? or 24.a5! with advantage. He puts exclamation marks on many of his opponent's moves from there on. In the endgame he recommends 58.Kd4! instead of 58.f4?! and he thinks after 59.Nd5? he has a lost position (correct is 59.f5!). Kramnik could have played 66...Kg5! and the last mistake is 68...Rb5? (68...Rc4 is correct) after which the game is equal again.
Apr-26-16  QueensideCastler: It's mate in 38 after 60. Nxf4 in accordance with Lomonosov Tablebases.
