  patzer2: Black blunders with 40...Be5?? (needed was 40...Bg7 41. d7 Rf8 42. c4 with only a small White advantage), after which White has the decisive deflection 41. Rd7+! winning the exchnge via discovered check.
Mar-23-05  Strategic Joker: patzer2 i where is the discovered ? also we already passes move 41 can u explain a little more clearly please
Mar-28-05  JSYantiss: Strategic Joker, after the text move 41...Kc8, White's move 42. Rf7+ is a discovered check by the bishop on h3.
Mar-31-05  Strategic Joker: oooo ok but he said Rd7 :)_ Rf7 is the move i sorry ^_^
Jun-05-05  fuel: YEAH... Kramnik sucks big time he should be ashamed of his cowardly approach to such a great game. It just shows who has nerves... Anand 's much better he's solid but he can flash a thing or two but kramnik from his repertoire to his style... it depicts total dryness... he's just pushing wood...
Oct-16-05  chessworm: Why did Black let go off the Bishop at the end and resigned... Black could have resigned even before bishop was taken... Kramnik might not have overlooked it with only two pieces in the board.
Oct-18-05  svbabu: Come on guys its blind-fold, Kramnik missed to notice that his bishop is under threat!
Nov-13-05  SuicidalKing: Wow, Anand has quite a plus score against Kramnik.
Nov-13-05  you vs yourself: <suicidalKing> They're fairly equal in classical games with a ton of draws. The plus score for anand is because of the rapid games. Vishy is better than Vlady in that department.
Nov-13-05  suenteus po 147: <you vs yourself> Vishy is better than EVERYONE in that department, last I heard ;)
Nov-13-05  SuicidalKing: Was this a fast time control?
May-18-06  comperson77: vishy real kick kramnik's butt in this game. great game by the lightning kid
May-07-09  Josue Ojeda: blindfolded
