|Jun-17-03|| ||morphynoman2: Analysis of this game, here:
|Oct-03-05|| ||fgh: A interesting defensive game.|
|Oct-04-05|| ||DutchDunce: The game that lost it all for Kasparov. My mind can still picture the image of Kramnik showing a rare moment of exuberation, fists raised in triumph. A stunning memory.|
|Oct-15-05|| ||csmath: 24. e3
Some proposed more aggressive approach here with 24. a4, which ironically probably only draws faster.
Kasparov misses here 29. Rc6! with serious initiative. The position would have quickly became a lot more dynamic or Kramnik would have shed a pawn.
Nice, un-Kasparov-like move, black of course cannot accept exchange white rooks would promptly penetrate black position.
30. ... c5!
Proper defence, it looks black will gain a draw now.
Not much of a game, somewhat a representative of the whole match. Kasparov trying to find a breach in impenetrable defences but going nowhere.
|Jan-24-06|| ||Conde de Montecristo: Im sure Kasparov was having personal problems; Susan Polgar said once that she woudnt have played a match under the circumstances Kasparov was going true, even she didnt say what was the problem of Kasparov at that time, but its clear that the best player of the history wasnt beat simply cause of Kramnik´s talent.|
He lose like a patzer two games, not like the 2849 GM he was, something strange happened there...

|Jun-24-08|| ||talisman: <morphy.noman2> read the analysis.the Bee martins are flying around 30.Q-e4|
|Jun-25-08|| ||Kaspablanca: nah, you must bear in mind that Kramnik was the only player (after Karpov) who could beat Kasparov with frequency before this match.|
|Sep-06-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: And Drawnik hasn't stopped running from Kasparov since..........|
|Aug-21-11|| ||positionalgenius: Does anybody have the picture of kramnik celebrating just after winning the world title?|
|Aug-22-11|| ||laskereshevsky: ..... His glasses' lances have been all clouded up.....|
|Apr-06-14|| ||Ulhumbrus: This game seems worth comparing with the game Kasparov vs Korchnoi, 1983 In that game the c6 square was weak and it led to a loss for Black but Black manages to escape in this game|
|Nov-04-15|| ||kamagong24: too late to switch to 1. d4|
|Feb-09-17|| ||plang: 15..Qb8 had been played in Bareev-Lalic Sochi 1987 (White won); 15..Qe7 was new. Kramnik was critical of his 20..e5?; he thought he should have played 20..f5 21 Nba5..Nf6 with counterplay. 23..c5?! 24 Qd5 would have led to the loss of a pawn. 28 Rc6?..Rf5 was not playable for White. 30 Qc6..Qe6 31 Qxa6?..Rxf2+ 32 Kxf2..Bxg3+ would alzso have been bad for Black. Once Black finally achieved 30..c5 the draw was clear.|
