|Nov-10-05|| ||trolls: 19...Re6 20 Qc1 Ra8 or 20...Rxc6.
I gotta admit, this time FG looks
to be on the mark. Either way Black
isn't losing a pawn here, and he's
still got the B's. But Kramnik has
|Nov-10-05|| ||aw1988: On Re6 Ra8? Rxb6! and White has a free piece.
Rxc6 looks fine, though after Qxc6 White seems to be in a better position than the game, if only slight.
|Mar-10-06|| ||alexandrovm: nice way to handle black's position, white played well, specially the ending...|
|Jan-22-07|| ||radioterapista: Ehi guys...what do you think about this move: 19..., Re6 20 Qc1, Ra1. The Black doesn't lose the pawn. I'm waiting your answer.|
|Jan-23-07|| ||Cyphelium: <radioterapista> 19.- ♖e6 20. ♖xe6 fxe6 21. ♕c1 looks rather dangerous for black, for example 21.- ♖a8 22. ♕c6 ♗f7 23. ♖b1 ♗a5 24. ♖b7 etc.|
|Jun-26-07|| ||get Reti: Can white play 12. Bxh7+ Kxh7 13. Ng5+ Kg6 (Not 13... Kg8 Qh5) followed by an attack on the king?|
|Jun-26-07|| ||Shadout Mapes: what about 12.Bxh7+ Kxh7 13.Ng5+ Kg8 (not 13...Kg6 14.h4) 14.Qh5 Bf5 - how could white continue?|
|Apr-02-08|| ||zink09: well well, a line coming directly from Fischer. http://www.chessbase.de/nachrichten...
check also the knight sac line form topalov-kramnik in wijk, awsome|
|Apr-02-08|| ||Karpova: <zink09>
yes, that was a nice April Fool's joke.
|Aug-01-08|| ||Marmot PFL: Wow that was tedious. The first 25 moves or so is just an old Karpov-Anand game and then that long ending...Even if you can draw it who would want to have to?|
|Aug-01-08|| ||kevin86: Kramnik was marred by white's sharp attack. Evidently,he missed the memo that said HE could be aggressive too.|

Regarding your kibbutz on this page-
<<Oct-03-04 offramp: What Leko said in the Press Conference after game 4 was this:
"My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger - a Szeged slugger - will always swing for the fences, and that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Kramnik out of the room with my 'home run punch.' My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Vladimir's head is screwed on tight or it may end up on top of the demonstration board!"
"I will knock Kramnik senseless. He is going down in game five. And he is going down HARD!"
Wise words, mate!>
Chess historian Edward Winter goes to some lengths to question the veracity of this quote:
"I was curious as to where “Offramp” had obtained the quote, and at the webpage http://www.eastsideboxing.com/news/... I found the following text:
“Sosa: ‘I'm Going to Knock Manfredy Out of the Park!’
… Dominican national lightweight champion Victoriano Sosa predicted a ‘home run-style’ knockout against former WBU champion Angel Manfredy when they rumble, Saturday, 9 November, on the pay-per-view extravaganza ‘Real Fights!’ …
Sosa, the cousin of Chicago Cub home run king Sammy Sosa, spoke today from his training camp outside Chicago …
‘My cousin Sammy told me a true slugger – a Sosa slugger – will always swing for the fences’, said Sosa. ‘And that is exactly what I am going to do. I am going to knock Angel out of the ring with my “home run punch”. My trainer and I have been developing it in camp. I just hope Manfredy’s head is screwed on tight or it may end up in the bleachers!’ …
‘I will knock Manfredy senseless. He is going down in five. And he is going down HARD!’”’

My annotations of this game.

|May-11-12|| ||Abdel Irada: Someone has a kibbutz on this page? Interesting. I didn't realize Israeli communes had been miniaturized to that extent.|
|May-11-12|| ||offramp: A kibbutz whose output is 90% lemons.|
|May-11-12|| ||YoungEd: I'm not going to read all 69 pages to see if someone has already said this, but I'm pleased with myself for figuring out why Black didn't try to win a pawn on move 48: 48...♗xf2? 49. e6+ ♗xd4 (not ♔h6 50. ♖h8++) 50. e7 and Black can't stop the ♙ from queening.|
|May-11-12|| ||DarthStapler: In the final line is the knight underpromotion really necessary?|
|May-12-12|| ||kevin86: A great game-Leko wins!|
|Jun-30-12|| ||freeman8201: Does anyone know that quasi English game Kramnik played where Black and white have pawns on c4,c5,d4,d5? I remember Kramnik was talkin' about how's he played this line before but usually has Knights on c3 and c6.|
|Jun-25-13|| ||parisattack: Fantastic game and excellent annotations by <GM Keene> both interesting and educational.|
|Sep-08-14|| ||1d410: What type of monster do you have to be for people to congratulate opponents on even beating you in one game?|
|Dec-02-14|| ||cplyakap: Excellent endgame technique by Leko and this game shows that having an extra pawn is very important.|
