Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-16  fisayo123: Kramnik has been messing up a few of these in the last few years. It's nice to see him finally convert an OTB masterpiece. And with 1. e4 as well.
Sep-08-16  Mudphudder: Geeezus. Mier just gets demolished after Kramnik's bishop sac. Quite the opposite of his gradual positional choke.
Sep-09-16  mandor: Ok, 14...d4 was bad. Improvements for black? (14.. fxe5!? it seems that white wants to castle short, in the game 0-0-0 worked by dinamic motifs, but there could be a sac echange R x Nf3). Other ideas?!
Sep-10-16  Papagambit: mandor ; your idea is interestig, but if B plays 14. ...fe5 W does NOT play 15.fe5(15.Ne5?? Bh4! wins for B) , but instead plays 15.Bh7 t as intended!
