Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-03-04  arjunkakar: what an absolute waiste of a game. Last couple of years or so i feel in classical format kaspy , anand and kramnik are just too happy to draw amongst each others
Aug-03-04  acirce: Well, Kramnik doesn't waste a white game in a situation like this without good reason. Look at the final position, does White have an advantage to talk about? Hardly and he was behind on the clock.
Aug-04-04  arjunkakar: No i dont. But I am not kramnik and i am not anand. These guys would figure in the list of top 10 players of all time. One is a speed demon with extreme tactical sharpness and stupendous defensive skills. Another is Rock solid - with the best preparations and one of the most accurate play i have ever seen. Both are pretenders to be the worlds best. What they produce of late in classical chess against other oponents is far more inspiring than what they do againt each other. Draws can be fun too. Hard fought and with an edge. Do you see that in this game? The other Ruy lopez with anand white was a bit better atleast. They should play sharper against each other.
Aug-04-04  acirce: <Draws can be fun too. Hard fought and with an edge. Do you see that in this game?> There are lots of other games between them you might prefer, for example BOTH of the ordinary final games in Dortmund (those with serious time controls), especially the first.
