Oct-02-04  Karpova: a very nice game
Oct-02-04  mack: Yes, 27.c6 a bit of an oversight though.

  samvega: a while ago i suggested to chessgames 21..? black to play as a simple puzzle.

1st b/c the move order matters (21..Ne4 22.Rd3 b5 23.f3). 2nd the way black's rook defends d2 "through" white's rook at d3, allowing 23..Nd2 is a nice illustration of an x-ray.

Maybe not interesting enough . . .

Oct-02-04  suenteus po 147: Why not 28.Rd1?
Feb-20-05  aw1988: <suenteus po 147> I think 28. Rd1 is met with ...b4.
Oct-22-05  alexandrovm: here Kramnik just blowns away Alexander of the board.
Jan-04-08  coastalferg: <Why not 28.Rd1?> looks to me that black can save his knight after that move ...Nd2 29.c7 (Rxd2 Qxd2 30.c8=Q Qf8#) Qxc7 30.Rxd2 Qc1+ 31.Rd1 Qxd1# and all other tries on move 28 seem to fail to Qf8.

Wonderful winning combination by Kramnik starting with 21...b5! I also like 12...Qa6 seems to equalize the game comfortable and 27...Qa5 is a nice finishing touch

Jan-05-08  coastalferg: thats Qf1 sorry not Qf8
Nov-02-10  jmboutiere: 16.Rd2 looks anti-positional, R bc1 looks better threatening the opening of c line
Nov-02-10  jmboutiere: 18 c4 is better than Nc4,
24.Qd1 is better than 24.Rd8
Oct-30-13  kyg16: What is wrong with 25. Qd1 ???
Oct-30-13  SimonWebbsTiger: 25. Qd1 Qxa2 and 26.Ra1/Rc1 Qb2 sets up ...Nd2-f3 whilst attacking the e5 knight too
Nov-19-14  ColeTrane: morozevich even has ties and losses of interest
May-27-15  hadi706: در حرکت 22 سفید مرتکب اشتباه فاحشی شده 22.Ne5?
حرکت مناسب در اینجا 22.Nd3 Rb1

  GrahamClayton: Rather than giving up the exchange, Morozevich sacrifices his queen, hoping to push his c-pawn to queen. Kramnik's 27...Qa5 puts an immediate end to any swindling opportunities for Morozevich.
