Oct-14-10  uscfratingmybyear: I checked out the comments on the Kramnik page since is the Player of the Day and was amazed at the vitriol and energy some people put into denigrating him. Then I replayed this game (again) and am still knocked out by it. And I think that's what matters.
Dec-31-10  talisman: <uscfratingmybyear> nice post! i hope i spelled your name right.
Dec-31-10  Whitehat1963: What on earth is wrong with 22...Nxb6???

  Sastre: If 22...Nxb6, 23.Qc6 Bh3 24.Qxb6 Bxf1 25.Rxf1 .
Jul-15-11  Mimchi1: It's so beautiful how the pawns roll down the board impervious to any captures.
Jul-16-11  kluto: 16...d3 looks like a really poor move. Why does he not ever play Ra7.
Apr-25-12  LoveThatJoker: Excellent game by Kramnik!

LTJ

Sep-14-12  sevenseaman: A very pretty game. For a little moment I did not understand 23...Qf3 and White's reaction to it. (well I naively thought white could have grabbed the DSB). Its a clever stratagem alright and needs to be taken care of. Confirmation of my suspicion came on White's 27th move.

"Me Gusta"??

Sep-14-12  mynameisrandy: Me gusta. Spanish for "I like it."
Sep-14-12  The Last Straw: Interesting...another passed pawn "on hold."
Sep-14-12  xthred: Brutal.
Sep-14-12  positionalgenius: Ha, what a great pun.
Sep-14-12  Dr.Vulcan: 21.Bf4? instead of Rac1!;...Qf8?? instead of ...Qd5!. Before to be a great game of Kramnik, it was a catastrophe from Morozevich.
Sep-14-12  wildrookie: What would have been black's chances if he had taken with the pawn on move 17?

  kevin86: Black sets up the unstoppable mate,but it isn't as unstoppable as it looked. An easy pawn move plugged the dike.
Sep-14-12  waustad: I was thinking that the pun was about Catalan and thought, "but Catalan isn't the same as Castillian" until I noticed that it was played in Mexico.

Me gusta tambien.

Sep-14-12  Dr.Vulcan: "No me gusta!" No me gustan partidas en que el trabajo de unos es facilitado por los burdos errores de otros. (I wish only that someone more fluent in English than me, could make a translation of this sentence.)

  Annie K.: OK, who is responsible for this pun?!

I thought I was the only one working out of Memebase around here...?

;)

Sep-20-12  Moszkowski012273: There is absolutely nothing wrong with 8....NxN winning a pawn, I really don't see why it wasn't played.
Sep-22-12  Dr.Vulcan: Indeed, Moszkowski012273, 8...Kxc3, 9.bxc3 Bxc3, 10.Rb1 Dxd4 (winning another pawn), etc. was the correct continuation. But, like said the philosoph "The fear to lose, takes away the will to win". Something similar had happened in M Romi vs Capablanca - Paris, 1938, when the italian GM "quaked" with a winner position because was in front of the great Capa, and the game finished 1/2-1/2.
Sep-24-12  Moszkowski012273: Ahhhh yes, we are all human- even GM's
