  beatgiant: <fgh: 38. ... Qxf5?. Was Korchnoi drunk?> What else does he have at that point? After the queen moves anywhere, the knight will be pinned and White can pile on it with Re1.

  plang: Great example of Kramnik's great middle game play at this point of his career. He was deadly with white with the Q-side openings. I never understood why he switched to e4 which doesn't seem to fit his style as well. Final combination is cute.
