|Dec-18-05|| ||Karpova: two things are for sure:
1. this game is absolutely brilliant
2. kramnik haters won't have a look at this game because it doesn't fit in their pattern of a boring kramnik game
|Dec-18-05|| ||who: <Sneaky> I assume you mean 27.Rxd7! not 27...Rxd7 (what else), though I think it's a fairly obvious move clearing the path for the pawn.|
|Dec-19-05|| ||KingG: <acirce> Perhaps you should add this to your list of interesting Kramnik games.|
|Dec-19-05|| ||acirce: <KingG> Yeah.|
|Dec-19-05|| ||sheaf: This is a brilliant game. kramnik is just amazing here, hope he regains his form once again.|
|Nov-11-06|| ||Chessmaster9001: Very strong play from Kramnik here, but meanwhile 30. Rd3 is a blunder which after which Anand can keep his position simply bringing his king 30. ..Kf8. Instead of Rd3 white can try 30. Re1! with following possible continuation 30... Qd4 31. Re8 Kh7 32. Bf5+ g6 33 d7 Qd1+ 34. Kg2 Qd5+ 35. f3 Qa2+ 36 Kh3 |
|Nov-11-06|| ||Lt. Col. Majid: This is a wonderful game.
A testimony to Kramnik's deep understanding of chess.
He was only 21 when he played this.
|Nov-11-06|| ||somitra: <Lt. Col. Majid: This is a wonderful game. A testimony to Kramnik's deep understanding of chess.

And Anand was only 17 then !
|Nov-11-06|| ||Lt. Col. Majid: <And Anand was only 17 then !
Yes, he was.
|Nov-11-06|| ||sheaf: <somitra > <lt col majid> lol! if he was 17 in 1996 and he is 37 now then anand is very fast indeed..|
|Nov-11-06|| ||Lt. Col. Majid: <lol! if he was 17 in 1996 and he is 37 now then anand is very fast indeed..> The Tiger from Madras has always been known for his speed!|
|Nov-11-06|| ||plang: This is a beatiful game but it is also an example of how much Kramniks style has changed since the late 90s. He is much "quieter" now.|
|Nov-11-06|| ||Karpova: Anand was born in 1969...|
|Nov-11-06|| ||Lt. Col. Majid: < plang: This is a beatiful game but it is also an example of how much Kramniks style has changed since the late 90s. He is much "quieter" now. >|
If there is one question I would love to ask Kramnik, it is why he is less aggresive/explosive than 10 years ago.
|Feb-09-07|| ||Orlin Burov: I wanna ask the same question.
He was a chesspowerhouse and a Phenomenon.
|Nov-02-07|| ||thom: I think todays kramnik would make the same 20. xf8 sac.|

Game Collection: Grooming passed pawns for promotion

Kramnik (White) ends a superlative game by using his White b5-bishop and d3-rook to support the promotion of his White d7-passed pawn. Probably one of Kramnik's best games.
|Dec-03-07|| ||notyetagm: A simply stupendous game by Kramnik.
|Feb-26-08|| ||Abejorral: Is this really Kramnik ??
I thought it was someone else, oh, i see, it was in 1997 when Kramnik played chess most of time.
|Feb-26-08|| ||Udit Narayan: <Abejorral> One thing that I think might help explain Kramnik's shift in playing style is his historic defeat of Kasparov in the 2000 Match. Prior to his match with Kasparov, all of his games were like this, but I suppose after the match he adopted a more solid, positional style --- one that is helpful, perhaps, in match play.|
|Dec-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: after the match he became drawnik|
|Dec-21-09|| ||Mr. Bojangles: Well he is back now.|
|Jan-09-10|| ||I3illieJoe: This game should definitely be considered Game Of The Day by chessgames.com. One of Kramnik's most brilliant games.|
|Aug-31-11|| ||Mr. Bojangles: This is the Kramnik we used to know but has now gone forever.|
|Sep-21-13|| ||Shams: Such a fantastic game.|
