Mar-11-18  Fanques Fair: Kramnink should have won this. Maybe 41- Bf4 to try playing g5 , without fearing 41-...,Rd8 because of 42-e6, threating to keep on pushing the e pawn and at the same time attacking black's c7 . Krajakin once more showed his tremendous defensive skill, but surely the ex-world champion must be frustrated to fail to win such a nice position, he that was the "creator" of the Berlin Defense since his famous victory in the match against Kasparov, in which he introduced this Ruy Lopez variation as a powerful drawing method.

  Marmot PFL: Confused- if it's such a powerful drawing line why should white have won?
Mar-11-18  AzingaBonzer: At no point was White winning here. A draw is the correct result.
