|Dec-09-04|| ||Bobak Zahmat: Nice to see an whole other variation of the Ruy Lopez. Kramnik's defense is incredible strong! |
|Jul-24-08|| ||4tmac: This game is a more normal black defense in the Berlin. In past games Black had been playing B-d7. This version is probably safer.|
|Sep-11-08|| ||Karpova: Evgeny Bareev: <Kasparov is the leading universal player, he can play any position well. But here it didn't happen. You have to manoeuvre, you have to play very subtly. He couldn't find a way to grasp this position. As soon as he adjusted himself to the king being on the right, it stayed in the centre. Happiness was always a hair's breadth away, but he never managed to catch it.>|

|Nov-01-10|| ||Eric Farley: Concerning Bareev's comment above: Kasparov was an attacking player and like most attacking players he didn't have a refined positional sense. When there was nothing to attack he didn't have the finesse Capablanca and even Alekhine had.|
|Nov-01-10|| ||I play the Fred: Eric Farley:
Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
Kasparov vs Shirov, 1994
Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1982
I don't know how GK managed to play these sort of games without a "refined positional sense".
|Nov-11-11|| ||TheMacMan: black is better if play continues|
|Nov-29-15|| ||Ulhumbrus: Instead of 17 c4, 17 Bg3 frees the f pawn to advance|
|Nov-29-15|| ||perfidious: <Eric Farley: Concerning Bareev's comment above: Kasparov was an attacking player and like most attacking players he didn't have a refined positional sense....>|
By nature, attacking positions were Kasparov's forte, but this stereotype is bollocks.
<....When there was nothing to attack he didn't have the finesse Capablanca and even Alekhine had.>
No GM could attain that level without a grasp of positional principles.
|Dec-05-16|| ||plang: 9..Bd7 had been played in two earlier games in the match; here Kramnik varied with 9..h6. 15..h5 had been played in Galkin-Yanovic Novgorod 1999 (White won); 15..Bc5 was new. 21 Rxd8!? was a surprising decision; Svidler recommended 21 Kg2..axb 22 axb..Rxd1 23 Rxd1..Ra2 24 Rd2..Ra3 25 Nc1 and White still has something to play for (not 25..Nxc4 26 Rd7+).|
