  Honza Cervenka: <<The idea may be 27...Qxf6 28 Nxe5, but after 28...Qe6! Black may end up with equality at least> 29.Nxc6 Qxe2 30.Ne7+ Qxe7 31.Rxe7 and 32.Rexf7 is pretty safe draw. Kramnik needs nothing more here.> And if 29...Qxc6, then 30.Rxf7!

Oct-14-10  Open Defence: but Kramnik decides to take on f7 with the Knight, now Anand should trade Queens?

He is not worse there but also not better. Now white has problem with his exposed Knight.

Oct-14-10  Open Defence: and now this is as drawn as a Van Gogh ?
Oct-14-10  jmi: looks like a dead draw now....

Oct-14-10  jmi: Agreed drawn. Thanks chessgames! :)
Oct-14-10  SetNoEscapeOn: Instructive drawing combination by Kramnik.

  Check It Out: <Knights satin white squares.> But I do think they were intending bodily harm ;)
Oct-14-10  turbo231: Automatic draw. It couldn't be more even.
Oct-14-10  ketchuplover: Any chance of seeing the Carlsen-Shirov game?

  whiteshark: Starting with <27.f6> it looks like a long 'forced' drawing line.

Oct-14-10  laskersteinitz: OMG Chessbase is so funny! http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail.... Look at the captions for the Kramnik/Anand pictures! "So you were not worried about the horse-shaped piece right next to your king?" "Not at all I worked out the L-shaped path and saw it could not take." LOL!

  Marmot PFL: I wonder why white is avoiding 6 e5 Nd5 7 Bd2. That seems to have had some good results.

  visayanbraindoctor: The quiet but profound Nimzovich-like move 22. Rae1 seems to 'overprotect' the e4 pawn at first sight; yet it also has the profound consequence of indirectly pressuring the e5 square. Now, in lines wherein Black proceeds with the thematic Nd4, White exchanges, and the e5 square is suddenly left open for a pawn advance by White, bolstered by the support of the Rook at e1. 22. Rae1 also prepares the possibility of an eventual Bd5, which actually occurred. After that Bishop is exchanged, again the e5 square is open to attack by the White Rook at e1.
