nice timing :P
|Oct-18-08|| ||VargPOD: Was pushing with 28...Nxd4 too dangerous?|
|Oct-18-08|| ||AdrianP: There you go. Logical result.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||acirce: A logical draw. Nice game! I liked ..h5, ..g5, ..g4. Nothing spectacular on this level, but maybe slightly counter-intuitive on mine to weaken the kingside, although perfectly logical and surely instructive.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||rajeshk1970: b6 in trouble|
|Oct-18-08|| ||madlydeeply: Ciao all. it was a blast. Thanks CG. Thanks kibitzers.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||chessic eric: <madlydeeply> i'm thinking the same - vishy obvisouly won't allow the ...Ne2+ winning a rook, and other than that e2 isn't a productive square for the knight. Once the heavy pieces are off and the black king comes to the center (a bit more easily than it's white counterpart), then Nf3 would really cramp white's game.|

Sad but true. Game over!
|Oct-18-08|| ||grebenarov: I wonder if Kramink will ever play for the win in this match?!|
|Oct-18-08|| ||PinnedPiece: Ugh. Draw|
|Oct-18-08|| ||Marmot PFL: Anand after yesterday was not really pressing so an easy draw for Kramnik.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||Sneaky: Fair enough, no complaints. Will be interesting to see what Kramnik has cooked up with the White pieces on Monday.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||theodor: cheers|
|Oct-18-08|| ||Ybrevo: Or like my friend WC Fields said (if I remember correctly): What is worth winning is worth cheating for.
Well, didnīt happen today - and a draw is fair enough. Thanks for the kibitz all of you:)|
|Oct-18-08|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: <AdrianP: Of course, Rybka assumes best play by each side - does not take into account that one side may be easier to play than the other>|
It assumes best play on each side- best play according to Rybka. It's usually better than what Kramnik and Anand play, but not always.
|Oct-18-08|| ||BishopofBlunder: Darn! I keep hitting "Refresh", but it still comes up as a draw.|
Anyone else having this problem?
|Oct-18-08|| ||An Englishman: Good Morning: Agreed draw? Not really a surprise. It takes a lot to beat Kramnik when you have the White pieces. I think he should play more aggressive openings with Black unless/until he can tie up the match with a win.|

Yes, very instructive game.
|Oct-18-08|| ||GM Julio Becerra: bye see you monday guys good loock.|
|Oct-18-08|| ||chessic eric: dang, oh well. I suppose it is what the match position calls for...|
|Oct-18-08|| ||MindCtrol9: When I saw <28. ...Rxd4> that's what I sought a <DRAW>|
|Oct-18-08|| ||Travis Bickle: GM Defirmian says Nxd4 was a shot
|Oct-18-08|| ||GM Renier Gonzalez: As I had said... Draw... Thank you guys.. Hopefully u guys enjoyed it anyways... even though the result... we tried to be of help.. See ya monday.. good luck|
|Oct-18-08|| ||MarkThornton: In a World Chamionship match, a comfortable draw like this, with no advantage for White at any stage, is a minor success for Black. This is particularly true for the player who just lost the last game.|
It's Kramnik's best game of the match so far, which should give him encouragement for Game 5.
|Oct-18-08|| ||malthrope: A Sunday day of rest (can you hear the comps grinding?) then back to the games! :)|
