  perfidious: Raises hand, though this <was> rather more interesting than the usual Berlin Wall.
Jun-20-13  DrAttitude: Wow! What a wild game!
Jun-20-13  jancotianno: This is a nice human game with inaccuracies and creative play instead of games full of memorised computer moves.

  Eyal: I suppose so. At any rate, that's Kramnik's second Black game in this tournament (after his draw against Mamedyarov in the 3rd round) where his preparation extended to the end of the game. There's some analysis (by Dennis Monokroussos) here: http://www.viewchess.com/cbreader/2.... Goes to highlight the possible practical advantages of playing against Kramnik something like the Trompowsky Attack (as Carlsen did) rather than going into one of his pet lines.
