Aug-04-04  fred lennox: A classic Krammik. Krammik can be liken to Schlechter. Forcible not in the way of creating traps, contrived combinations or pinning down to one idea, but in a way in which sound development evolves with such wonderful flexibility and breadth.

  suenteus po 147: <fred lennox> A very interesting analysis of Kramnik's play. It should be no surprise to you that Petrosian is often described in the same regard to Schlechter and that he's, of course, the evolutional stepping stone between Schlechter and Kramnik. I find particularly interesting about all three of them their, as you say, development strategy, the way it progresses while maintaining flexibility and scope. This is why players like Morphy, Tal, and sometimes Fischer have usually never interested me. Traps, tactics, and crazy combinations all have their place, but I just don't always see their attraction. One of Petrosian's or Schlechter's games (and now Kramnik's) takes many hours for me to pick apart move by move to understand all the subtleties and nuances. Often far more enjoyable and educational.

But generally I enjoy Kramnik more than Morozevich, Petrosian more than Tal and so on.
