|May-09-11|| ||Sleeping kitten: Not a world championship endgame, alas !
From 49th move, Radjabov's play is horrible. Needless to say the time control is the main reason for that.
|May-09-11|| ||HeMateMe: VK, textbook work on Q + Rs endgame, playing against a backward pawn.|
|May-09-11|| ||MaxxLange: was this from the rapids?|
|May-09-11|| ||LucB: It was either Blitz or Rapids, but I'm not sure which. It certainly wasn't classical time controls, if that's what you're asking.|
|May-09-11|| ||MaxxLange: yeah, thanks. that's what I was really asking|
|May-09-11|| ||Pygeum Lycopene: Is this it? the newly infamous 'clock stop' game?|
|May-09-11|| ||bartonlaos: Clock Stop Game: Kramnik vs Radjabov, 2011|
|May-10-11|| ||Gilmoy: Within each pairing, games 1-4 are classical, 5-8 are rapid, 9-14 are blitz, and 15 is armageddon, with short-circuiting after any non-tied pair in 5-14. This was game "1.11", hence the 3rd blitz game. Radjabov had game "1.12" to respond, but Kramnik found a perpetual check to end the match.|
|May-11-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: what is this clock stops game?|
|May-11-11|| ||checkmateyourmove: looking at the game , i dont feel like kramnik took out the sting of the kings indian of radjas but radja took the steam out himself. Kramnik's endgame seems to be the decisive point in this mini match .|

White is winning, I'm pretty sure.
