Sep-12-10  Sularus: After black's 10th move, the position is the same as in this game:

Aronian vs Kramnik, 2010

White deviates first probably fearing an improvement by black... to no avail.

  tamar: <beatgiant> Armageddon game, so hard to tell. I think Aronian overstepped though.

Last few moments Kramnik knocked over his king 2 or 3 times, and Aronian is heard complaining on the video, "what are you doing?"

Sep-13-10  ArmeniaNL: this is a nice video, and I am a bit surprised there was no scandal after this game, kramnik seems to do crazy thing and the arbiters did not do anything to prevent his crazy movements.

there was even no handshake which is common for kramnik but not for aronian.

  AgentRgent: That video proves how completely absurd these ridiculous Armageddon games are.
