Apr-03-06  Whitehat1963: Karjakin takes his cue from Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2001 to beat Kramnik in the Opening of the Day.

Karpov, Kasparov, Kramnik ... Karjakin?

Dec-19-06  Aseem: Chess games.com I think you guys have made a serious mistake, this game is not to be seen in the chess base report of Dortmund 2004. There in round 5 Kramnik has played against Bologan
Dec-19-06  Aseem: Chessgames.com please look into the matter
Dec-20-06  rover: <Aseem> It was played in the rapid tibebreaks.
Dec-20-06  Aseem: <Rover> Thanks!!
Jan-25-07  AAAAron: Karjakin's endgame is very impressive!!! I wonder how Kramnik handled the loss. I bet he drank all the booze in his hotel room, then trashed the place. Kramnik does have that crazy look in his eyes.....
Sep-30-07  argishti: AWSOME ENDGAME!! wow!!

  Fusilli: <AAAAron> LOL! Actually, he is probably one of the calmest GMs around, that's why your post is really funny. Amazing endgame. I wonder if Kramnik blew it.
Mar-05-09  WhiteRook48: totally messed up!

Aug-22-12  Overgod: Well,here's my pun:"Tearing Apart the Wall of Berlin".

I would simply call it "The Berlin Fall"

:-)

Hang on everyone I've got one based on a Smiths song:

"Aiwass Loki forage are bandana fanta jab in Evans's nose Amiss rabble now" something like that.

I was looking for a job, and then I found a job,
And heaven knows I'm miserable now.

I am with you all the way, there. I detest the Berlin. I mean the modern version with the doubled c-pawns, not the Rio variation that Lasker and Korchnoi used to play.

Who sits down at a chessbaord as black and thinks, "If he plays 1.e4 I'll play the Berlin and have a wonderful time holding my position for 7 hours."?

Aug-11-15  SpiritedReposte: Lol and that vulgar, artificial castling...just an abomination!

  thegoodanarchist: For some reason the top players love the Berlin Wall.

Like flies to a rotting badger carcass, they flock to it. Carlsen, Anand, Kramnik, Kasparov and more - they seem to never get enough of the Berlin Wall.

Aug-29-16  Alexandro: Until the 42nd move the game remained draw but the option has chosen by Kramnik turned the game unpredictable!
Oct-16-16  mandor: I changed the Berlin concept when I saw the Yasser video on it (youtube). Then I understand why became so popular. In my opinion, most of the commentators in Kasparov and Kramnik game do not understand at all.
Oct-16-16  mandor: The greatests minds in chess tried several ways to crack it.. and here we found a very creative idea from Karjakin.
Nov-23-16  Conrad93: The French should be played more often.
It's more interesting than the Berlin, and more solid.
Jul-20-17  Toribio3: Karjakin is a very strong player! His manner of playing is a combination of Smyslov and Botvinnik!
