  refutor: i wouldn't be surprised to see kramnik play the closed lopez in his match v. leko (not necessarily the breyer). the closed ruy lopez needs a new champion and i think kramnik's the guy

  InspiredByMorphy: WOW! This is a truly amazing game! Black attacks with a true ferocity, charging down the center of the board with two center pawns, fully developed pieces, and a discovered check which may promote a pawn in the process. I may have to look more into this breyer defense...
Dec-22-08  notyetagm: Wow, *tremendous* game by Kramnik.
Jan-09-10  shamat1: good game by kramnik
Jan-13-11  swr: Amazing.
Jan-13-11  sevenseaman: Kramnic has total control of the board. The Black Q, R and the two Bs act in concert to pose White an endless chain of problems.

34. ..Rc2 is a classy move that cannot be dealt with by White on a/c of the discovered check threat by the D-S B.
