Dec-26-08  acirce: 2644, but of course he has been inactive for a long time.
Dec-27-08  hackmate: <acirce> Thanks. I wish my rating was that awful due to "activity" :-)
Dec-27-08  slomarko: Kramnik troubles started with the silly 16...Nb4 plan. he should have played Rfd8 exchange all rooks make a draw and go to eat the dinner.
Jun-20-09  refutor: <kramnik say he doesn't understand where he made a mistake and he got totally outplayed>

karpov says kramnik's first mistake was 9. ...Be6? (giving Kiril Georgiev vs Adianto, 1994 as an improvement 9. ...Na6 10.g3 Ne7 11.Bd2 Nf5 12.Bg2 Be6 13.Rc1 O-O-O = )

I think 41.Bb6 is the real killer. Note Black’s backrank issue
