  beenthere240: I completely fell for a bogus post about this being a wild and wooly game. It should be said that Anand has the better bishop!

  HeMateMe: "Fastest Draw in the West".
Jan-17-13  KKsystem: GM Kramnik playing the Berlin Defense Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

And the final position He! He! He! He! He!

Jan-24-13  iamsheaf: Not a single pawn exchanged... you can't get a more closed position than this...either side can sacrifice pieces and still get a draw because there is no obvious to break through

In the final position white has a better pawn structure and a bishop which isn't aiming it's own pawns ;-)....white can take comfort from that.
