Apr-29-05  Whitehat1963: Player of the Day beats the Kramnik in a game that also features the Opening of the Day.
Jun-09-05  ConspTheory06: Kamsky was one of the top until he took a couple of years off and now he's come back so hopefully we see more of his dymanic playing style. He's got a 5-4-9 against the Classic World Champ Kramnik and that was back before Kramnik started his downhill slide...also before Kramnik was WC.
Jun-03-06  MarvinTsai: What's the point of 28. .. b4 ? It's not a sacrifice, it's a present. And black's position was slightly better before this move. Anything I missed?
Jun-03-06  hitman84: Yes 28...b5 looks like a blunder.
