Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-30-04  ConspTheory06: At 8... Nxd4 would leave an interesting situation because after 9.Qxd4 then 9...e5 would fork both bishop and queen with no way out.
Mar-30-04  Benjamin Lau: I may be missing something, but I think 8...Nxd4 has no fork, the bishop is not yet on f4. You probably meant 9...Nxd4, but I think simply 10. Qxd4 e5?? 11. Bxe5 dxe5 (if you really want the bishop) 12. Qxd8# is good for white.

Feb-28-12  screwdriver: Well, it's not looking good for Kramnik's opponent. He has to answer the check and the queen comes over and grabs e5 with check. Then things just look grim for white.
