Mar-17-08  percyblakeney: In three years Kramnik had won one rapid game with black (Van Wely vs Kramnik, 2007), but here he seemed better all the time and won easily. Leko keeps losing with white and still doesn't seem to be close to his best form.

  whiteshark: 30.Bf1 looks poor, whereas <30.Kg2=> is eliminating all black back rank threats.

It seems as if 25. ... Ba2 isn't the best, otherwise Shredder has black as more than two pawns up already after 22-23 moves.
