Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-22-03  clifford: a great game, naiditsch really defends well for the draw
Sep-22-03  Corben: Kramnik`s style is simple and elegant, and incredibly similar to that of Capablanca. This has nothing to do with Petrosian`s style.
Sep-22-03  Kenneth Sterling: I thought Karpov sometimes approached Capablanca, and in an odd way Fischer often showed his influence. I am looking forward to the match between Kramnik and Leko, two players about whom I know very little.
Sep-22-03  PinkPanther: < I am looking forward to the match between Kramnik and Leko, two players about whom I know very little.>

You must know very little about them if you're looking forward to a match between them, it's gonna be a snoozefest.

Mar-15-06  Topzilla: Wow, Kramnik fighting hard to win a game, and since 2004: or he blunders, or he draws at move 20 or so, what a difference.

There is definetely two KramnikĀ“s, the old talented one, and the one that since 2004 cannot be called chess player anymore.
