|Feb-24-03|| ||refutor: a very powerful game by kramnik...can i change my opinion on the result of the leko-kramnik match? ;) just joking |
|Feb-24-03|| ||mrwonkabar: 29 ..d3 was an excellent move, pretty much sealing the game |
|Feb-25-03|| ||Plasmatics: I assume Kramnik didn't play 35. ... Kxf8 because of Bxc5+ and Ba3 stopping the pawn from Queening? |
|Dec-17-03|| ||technical draw: <refutor> You're right.
<mrwonkabar> You're right.
<Plasmatics> You're right. |
|Oct-26-04|| ||Whitehat1963: Good example of the opening of the day. |
|Oct-26-04|| ||aw1988: <technical draw: <refutor> You're right. <mrwonkabar> You're right. <Plasmatics> You're right.> Good game. |
|Oct-26-04|| ||tpstar: <technical draw> You're right. <Whitehat1963> You're right. <aw1988> You're right. |

|Oct-31-05|| ||Averageguy: I'm very confused :(|
|Nov-04-05|| ||aw1988: <sneaky pete> You're horrible.|

|Sep-03-06|| ||patzer2: According to the chessgames.com and the chesslab.com databases, this is the first time 12. b4! was tried at master level. It is now part of opening theory and an interesting temporary positional pawn sacrifice offer, which allows White to get his pawn back quickly, and with a clear advantage, if Black accepts it (e.g. 12. b4! cxb4 13. axb4 Qxb4?! 14. Bxa7 ).|
As such 12. b4! might be more accurately characterized as a positional attack on a pinned pawn, which forces 12...Ne6 =.
