Mar-16-08  cannibal: Even seemingly boring games can have some thrills in blindfold. From the official site:

<Remarkably, Kramnik revealed afterwards that he had entered in this tactical exchange of blows thinking that the black white-squared was on c8 instead of d7. Only when Leko played 24Qf5, <[probably that should read "23. ...Qxc2"]> he wondered if he could really take the rook on a8, recalculated the game again and decided on the correct position of the bishop. And wisely took the queen and proposed a draw.>
