  Ron: Kasparov on the 15th move exchanged queens. I am inclined to think that 15 Qc4 offer White better chances. If after 15 Qc4 black plays Qxb2, then play might go 16. Rfb1 Qxe2 17. Ra2 and Black's queen is trapped. After better black replies to 15 Qc4 white can make moves like b4, Rfb1, etc

  acirce: Kramnik: <I was rather late to the game, about 10 minutes. I had a driver who didn't know the city. I had left with time to spare, as usual, but I arrived late. Before the game a somewhat unpleasant incident occurred. I'm late, Kasparov has already made his first move, and suddenly the organizers of the match stop me and say, "By a request of Kasparov's camp a security guard will accompany you to the toilet from now on." Of course, this was a psychological ploy. They could have called a couple of hours before the game to let me know. This isn't done when my clock is running. I say, "Let's talk about this later, my clock is running." They say, "We have to decide it now." I agreed, but I demanded the same conditions for Kasparov.> (Bareev/Levitov: "From London to Elista")

Wow interesting to read this - Few years later Topalov - Kramnik match became very dirty when Topalov camp suspected Kramnik was cheating using modern technology...
