  InspiredByMorphy: Not the kind of game I expected. Kramnik is the one attacking most of the time and although Adams wins, he plays very defensively until Kramnik slips in the endgame.

  InspiredByMorphy: I wonder if Kramnik could have played 32.Qh4 followed by 33.Rh3 ?

  InspiredByMorphy: I guess Im commenting on games between these two players because their styles of play are contradictory. Fun to see how they both handle different positions. In this game I think Kramnik played like Adams! (even though he lost, I like his play in this game better). A rematch would be great by the way ...
Jun-28-04  Everett: Kramnik, before 2000, was known to be very much like Karpov in his prime as white (positional and aggressive), and similar to Kasparov as black (going for a win, counterattacking and double-edged). This game does not fall so far out of his style, and Adams did what he must to avoid getting wiped off the board.
Dec-10-14  Conrad93: Never play the English against en Englishman.
