Sep-03-17  Toribio3: Good job by Kramnik, he was able to penetrate the kingside of Changren Dai.

  technical draw: I think no matter where Dai moves his king 52..Bg4 should be the next move.

(Ok, I can't help it: No matter where white moves his King he will die)

Sep-05-17  tonsillolith: A lot can happen in 10 moves! The transformation from move 41 to 51 is remarkable!
Sep-09-17  tonsillolith: After rewatching the game, I felt Black's play gives a strong illustration of the power of the bishop pair.

During the middle game his bishops sit in the back while controlling both sides of the board. He was able to hold the line with his h4 pawn while simultaneously protecting the important a-pawn.

Then he was able to compromise the integrity of White's kingside and quickly maneuver all his pieces over to take advantage of the situation. Meanwhile, White's knights are still on the other side of the board where the previous action took place.
