  plang: Kramnik, prior to the game, "The King's Indian Defense occurs rarely in my "Black" games. But at this moment in the tournament race, after three successive draws, I neede to play only for a win, to try and catch Kasparov and Svidler who had gone ahead, and I put aside my current main repertoire (the Nimzo-Indian Defense) until better times." 12 hxg..hxg 13 Nxg5..Bh6 14 Nh3..Qe7 is not mentioned in any reference work I have but blacks dark square control appears to be well worth the pawn. Kramnik recommended 17 b4 with a slight advantage for white. A very sharp middle game ensued with chances for both sides. After 35 Bg3 both sides had attacking chances. Not 38 Be5..Rh1+ 39 Kg3..Qe3+ 40 Kf3..Rc1#. Kramnik was critical of 45 Kf1? recommending 45 Kf3 instead. 52 g3? led to a quick loss for Piket; after 52 Bg3+..Kd5 53 Bxh4..Bxc5 he would still have been much worse.
