Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-05  Jaymthetactician: Kramnik plays the Nimzo-Indian quite well. Perhaps I should switch over to this system.

10...e5! what a move! after 11.dxe5,Nxe5 black's game is quite good and active, while in the game Kramnik achieved the thematic 12...Ne5 anyways.

14.Nf5 was meant to prove dark square weaknesses, but white cannot make any use of it, black however benefits from 15.Ng3 as this square is awkward for the knight.

Mar-09-11  Salaskan: IMO, Shirov should have resigned after 23...Qxc2. A queenless middlegame against Kramnik is obviously just lost.
