|Sep-26-08|| ||0817: What about 26... c5 ?|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Raginmund: Could you tell me what happens after
11. ... Qxd4??
or what' the theory behind this d4 pawn sac...
|Sep-26-08|| ||Raginmund: I still found it (patzer) :(|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Raginmund: Kramnik playing so agressive it's not a novelty. He was furious after Corus.
A game to be remembered.
Another nice win of the year was the impressive dragon in Karjakin X Radjabov.
shocking and exciting
|Sep-26-08|| ||Sularus: topalov is kramnik's meat.
as vidmar was capa's.
|Sep-26-08|| ||kevin86: It was funny how the knight at e4,pinned though it was,was the keystone of blacks position. For seventeen moves,it was unmoved. Finally upon its capture,black was dooomed.|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Blackreptile: To chessya11: I was in the playing room when the game was played: Topalov just stopped the clock, and quickly left the room without any demonstration of being affected.He obviously already knew he was lost since a few moves.
Not the same can be said when, in this same tournament, Anand played the spectacular ...Qf3 against Kramnik,which seemed quite a shock to this one,who resigned at once, but started analysing a few moves with his opponent.|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Bobsterman3000: I love to see Kramnik play so assertively. Too bad he passes up too many chances to play this way with black...|
|Sep-26-08|| ||costachess: i had ask a question 9 comments before with this idea: if 11. Nxd4 so N x h2. But what about 11. ..., c5 ? that variation: 11. ..., c5 12. Nxd4 Nxh2 (!?) . Anyone can tell me?|
|Sep-26-08|| ||sergeidave: 32. Be7 is beautiful...|
|Sep-26-08|| ||megalinks1: costachess, I think better is 11. ..., c5 12. Nxd4 Nxf2 attacking the queen. Then if 13. KxN BxN+|
|Sep-26-08|| ||newzild: A really nice finish by Vlad - loved the Queen sac.|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Madman99X: 26... Kg8 seems a fubar. Perhaps c5, as was suggested earlier?|
|Sep-26-08|| ||Breunor: <costachess:> What about 11. ... c5 ?|
Maybe 12 Be7?
|Sep-27-08|| ||patzer2: The Queen sacrifice 25. Qxb7! gives White a clear positional advantage. However, Black's blunder 26...Kg8?? makes it a decisive advantage after 27. c5! .|
|Sep-27-08|| ||kevin86: I object to 25 ♕xb7 being classified as a queen sacrifice;after all,white gained a rook and piece for the queen. It's like putting a dollar in the collection plate and taking out 95c in change-lol|
|Apr-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 33...Rxb7 34 Bf6+ Kh7 35 Rxe8|
|Dec-15-09|| ||The Rocket: "I object to 25 Qxb7 being classified as a queen sacrifice"|
please think again,
kramnik had a queen on move 25, on move 26, topalov has a queen and vladdy doesnt.
If kramnik gets all the pieces in return its still a queen sacrifice!!!what does the material gain have anything to do with it???
|Aug-26-10|| ||Whitehat1963: Impressive win. Love the final move.|
|Feb-09-11|| ||fab4: Ofcourse it's a queen sac ! And obviously he had it in mind playing Ng5...Beautiful finish and impressive all around concept by Krammnik when saccing his queen..The power of the rook on the 7th rank combined with the 2 bishops.|
|Feb-09-11|| ||LoveThatJoker: This position is absolute gold!

One of my fav Kramnik games.
|Dec-17-12|| ||notyetagm: Game Collection: KRAMNIK'S BEST GAMES|
|Feb-01-14|| ||kenilworthian: In NIC Yb 88, Lalic suggests 15...Bxb2! 16.Rb1 Bc3 17.Bd2 Bxd2 18.Qxd2 Qe7 19.Qb2 f6 20.Qb7 Qb7 21.Rb7 Nc5 22.Ra7 Ra8 23.Ra8 Ra8 24.Re2 Ra4 with compensation.|
|Mar-19-17|| ||Toribio3: Amazing Kramnik! Controlling the seventh rank and the power of two bishops are the themes behind this game.|
