May-25-09  visayanbraindoctor: Kramnik could have only been 8 years old when he played this game. Kids aren't supposed to play like this. They're still supposed to be learning how to mate a naked King with two rooks.
May-25-09  Open Defence: thats what I tell myself when I lose to an 8 yr old.....
Aug-07-09  SharkGypsy: This was a fascinating game.
Jun-25-10  Don Cossacks: Powerful game by the young Kramnik.
Jun-25-10  SpiritedReposte: Dag! This is a sharper, riskier version of Kramnik. This game should be in more collections.
Jun-25-10  Catfriend: He's <<8>>... Holy Schnitzel!

Already back then he calmly withstood sharp attacks, defended well, and won with his counter-play.

Nov-22-11  qqdos: Was he 8 or 9? - not that it makes much difference. This game is the first in Kramnik's 2000 book My Life and Games and was played in the last round of the Krasnodar Junior (under-16) ch. with Oganian in the lead - Vlado had to win with the black pieces! I presume Oganian was not a Dr. already. Compare this with another prodigy E Kengis vs Kasparov, 1973 who managed to draw against the Velimirovic Attack.
Sep-22-14  Chatu Ranga: This game reminds me of E Magerramov vs Kasparov, 1973.
Jul-13-15  roriray35: oganian's birth year is given as 1952.How could he be playing in an under sixteen tournament in 1984 ?.

  whiteshark: And <Keeping Up with the Oganians> isn't a German reality television series either.
Jul-30-15  roriray35: could it be Arsen Oganyan, born 1970 in russia?
Oct-28-15  rookpawn101: How does an 8 year old play with such precision and tenacity?!
May-03-19  Damenlaeuferbauer: <rookpawn101>: Because he was THE Vladimir Kramnik!
