Mar-14-06  Aseem: All players who think Kramnik is a boring player must check out this game. It may not contain deep sacrifices but some unconventional moves which are not found by many players, 17.Na2 for instance is not something that a player will easily think of
Mar-14-06  coolblues: what if black's a pawn captures en passant on move 18?

  me to play: <coolblues> en passant capture is not possible on move 18. The black pawn would need to be on a4.
Mar-16-06  EmperorAtahualpa: It would be awesome if Black was able to capture en passant here though. :) Instant win!

Yes, this is really an -AMAZING- game by Kramnik.

Jun-08-10  Everett: 17..e5 is a possible improvement.

17..e5 18.Bd2 e4 does not look like one way traffic for white.

Dec-17-15  1971: <visayanbraindoctor> What about Kramnik in 1996?!
