Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-27-06  nolanryan: 29 Nf5 is pretty hard core.
Apr-27-06  nolanryan: I've been looking at several games of Kramnik during this era. I'm amazed at how Kramnik puts his opponents down so brutally and decisively in the middlegame. His future was so bright!
Apr-27-06  Jim Bartle: Shirov: "Although in 1992 Kramnik was just 17, his play, especially with white, was already terrifying."
Apr-27-06  Nomen Nescio: Why not 29..gPXN?
I see 30 Rg3+ Kh8
31 Qg5 is rebuffed by f6 (?)
Apr-27-06  nolanryan: 29.. gxf5 30 Qg5

  Mateo: A very good positional achievement.

Yes, if 29...gxf5 30.Qg5+. If 30...Qg7 31.Qxd8+. If 30...Kh8 31.Qf6+ wins too.

I would say that the game is lost, from a positional point of view, after 29...Rad7, because the Black Knight cannot move (better seems 29...Nd7). I could not find a way to bring it into play.

The little combination beginning with 39.Ne4! could be a nice puzzle. The point is that 42...Rxb8 loses on 43.Qe5+.
