Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-05  suenteus po 147: I must say, this is an impressive game by Kramnik. As regards to the end position (and those like me who are slow to realization): Kasparov is stuck as the knight on c6 cuts off the crucial access the black king needs. However, to move the knight allows Kramnik to win the exchange (or queen his pawn). Thus, Kramnik's king is free to maraud on the kingside or take the black knight, depending on where Kasparov deploys his king. An excellent ending to a very fascinating game (much too deep for me in places). Anybody aware if this was played under classical time control or faster?
Oct-09-05  iron maiden: I don't know the exact time control but I'm pretty sure it wasn't classical.
Oct-09-05  tiburon92: I like this game. It was very aggressive.
