Aug-11-07  dumbgai: Wow, I can't believe nobody has commented on this crazy game. There are pieces hanging everywhere such that I have no hope of understanding what's going on. And this was played when Kramnik was still a teenager, I believe.
Aug-11-07  Mameluk: One of best Kramnik games. Ftacnik calls it virtuoso and believes white┬┤s sacrifice is correct.

  yiotta: 2 pawns down by move 18 for unclear positional compensation; he has good nerves.
Mar-03-14  onam: 26 Bc6 Its important to exchange this bishop which guards weak squares in Black's camp

  fredthebear: Viable alternative moves:
29.Rdxe6! works well for White.
30.Qxf5 could also work for White.

  MissScarlett: Kramnik's famous red jacket:

Saw him wearing this at the 1994 London PCA event.
