|Jan-13-08|| ||ganstaman: Hmmm, so the second time Kramnik faces Radjabov's KID in Corus, and the second draw. Overall, Radjabov is +32 -21 =47 with the KID (55.5% with it, which I think is better than his black percentage overall).|

Probably just a fashion change. What _is_ the Bayonet Attack? I wasn't aware that 9.Ne1 Nd7 10.f3 f5 11.g4 was popular again.
|Jan-13-08|| ||Resignation Trap: <nescio> The Bayonet Attack is where White plays 9.b4 immediately instead of 9.Nd2 as he did here. A memorable game with 9.b4 was Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1997 .|
|Jan-13-08|| ||Gouki: Kramnik's fighting spirit in this game is simply amazing!|
one would have thought that he would have offered a draw at around move 40 or so.
This is indeed, fighting chess :D !
|Jan-13-08|| ||thom: For me it was brave to kramnik play King's Indian against Radjabov. He has the best King's Indian today.|
|Jan-13-08|| ||nescio: <The Bayonet Attack is where White plays 9.b4 immediately> Ah, Taimanov's move! He played it in 1956 at the Alyekhin Memorial, but there are already too many Taimanov variations, I suppose.|
|Jan-14-08|| ||percyblakeney: Short interview with Radjabov after the game:
|Jan-14-08|| ||arnaud1959: <Gouki: Kramnik's fighting spirit in this game is simply amazing!> Give me an extra pawn with no counter chances for the opponent (like in this game), I would have a fighting spirit even aginst Kramnik!!|
|Aug-13-08|| ||Everett: Kramnik pulls a Karpov and putters around for 30 moves in a drawn ending.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||Cactus: Even if it is drawn, why not make Radjabov prove it?|
