  chancho: A super Grandmaster playing a Grandmaster. Kramnik makes it look easy.
Oct-16-08  Microbe: Hello. I really enjoyed this game, but being a poor player (especially in the endgame) I don't quite understand 34.f3. Can anyone elaborate for me please? I would be most grateful. =)
Jun-24-10  Don Cossacks: Tal got schooled.
Jun-24-10  Catfriend: <Microbe> Re: 34.f3 - not that it matters, White is lost, but IMO f3 is a last desperate attempt, trying to free Bg2 from the guarding duty, in order to play Bf1 - there, it can protect d3.
Jun-13-13  Cemoblanca: ShakeDown! :D
