Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-17-06  euripides: Watch Kramnik's queen's knight here, blindfold.
Jul-16-07  Rodrigo Gutierrez: This is the Slav player's dream: black's knights chew white's bishop pair to pieces. Go Kramnik!
Jul-16-07  Atking: Yes a great accomplishment against a still World top player. I know it is a blindefold performance in which Karpov is not the best but seeing that game I still don't understand why someone could not admit Kramnik as a World Champion.
Jul-17-07  Rodrigo Gutierrez: <Atking>: you mean there are people that don't admit Kramnik as a world champion?
Jul-17-07  Petrosianic: >>...but seeing that game I still don't understand why someone could not admit Kramnik as a World Champion. >>

Maybe because the game was played in 1995, when Kasparov was champion, and the title doesn't really change hand in non-classical games, or when someone other than the sitting champ is defeated.

Jul-18-07  Atking: <Rodrigo Gutierrez: <Atking>: you mean there are people that don't admit Kramnik as a world champion?> Yes it is what I mean. Sorry for my poor english. Kramnik was 20 years old at time. Obviously he makes progress then...
Jul-18-07  Rodrigo Gutierrez: <Atkin: Obviously he makes progress then...> I'd sure say so! I'm a big Kramnik fan and I hate it when people claim he's not a "true" world champion. He's modest and his style is not very flashy. But he's been world champion for seven years and I'm sure he'll defend his title succesfully in the next two years. Not many world champions in the second half of the 20th century have achieved that.
