Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-03  Fulkrum: I think the position at the end is unclear. At least to my untrained eye. I wonder if there were other factors allowing for the players to agree to a draw at this postion. At leas this is an interesting endgame puzzle.
May-24-03  Bears092: from what I hear, both players won their first two rounds of this tournament, and neither wanted to take a chance with a loss.
May-24-03  Calli: Well, black's next move is Rxb4. Since white has no winning chances at that point, he proposed a draw (I assume). It was up to Kramnik whether to try and win it.
May-24-03  crafty: 51. ... ♖xb4 52. ♕c8 ♖f4 53. ♕a6+ ♔e7 54. ♕b7+ ♔e6   (eval -0.55; depth 17 ply; 500M nodes)
Sep-04-09  Josue Ojeda: 38. Rxc6???
Sep-04-09  sfeuler: I agree <Josue Ojeda> 38.a5 was crazy, why not just take Black's Rook with 38.Rxc6 and be a rook up? Is the game score correct?
Dec-15-16  clement41: Look at white's knight manouever between moves 40-42! One recognizes the pattern where a knight on the "simly square" (b2, g2,b7, g7) is outbeaten by a mere pawn attacking with promotion threat. Then white later unleashed the beautiful 44 Rd8! seeing that black will interfere with ...Rf8 covering a8
