Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-05  chesscrazy: nice game by kramnik
Mar-26-07  Timex: How does kramnik win?
Mar-26-07  shalgo: He's up a rook. How does he not win?
Aug-02-08  Roark: It's a 2-pawn sac in the opening. Nice
Feb-10-12  LoveThatJoker: Wow. What a tense fight.

Note that if 100...Nf6 101. Rb8 leads also to Black sacrficing a minor piece for the g-pawn (in this case the N).

LTJ

Feb-11-12  drukenknight: moves 89-90 looks suspect, putting the pawn in the way of the B doesnt seem like a long term idea; and walking into a pin almost always trouble..
Feb-11-12  LoveThatJoker: It's hard to suggest an alternative here, man!

Black is practically in zugzwang after 89. Rf1!

Feb-11-12  drukenknight: it looks like he has to defend the area around the K as "space" so move the N to d7, it also covers the R check on f8, while the B can cover h6 from the K via g7.
Oct-06-13  visayanbraindoctor: Peculiar observation:

This is the second decisive classical game between Anand and Kramnik. It lasts over a hundred moves.

The first decisive classical game between Anand and Kramnik, just played in a previous tournament, had also lasted over a hundred moves. Kramnik vs Anand, 1996
