Jun-22-11  DiscoJew: This was the big last game. Whoever won this game was champion. I am surprised Ponomariov could put so much faith in the Ragozin to fight for the full point. It must be currently in great shape theoretically.
Jan-03-12  SoundWave: <DiscoJew> When annotating this game in New in Chess magazine (2011/5) Ponomariov mentions that 4...Be7 is more correct. He cites the fact that he didn't have time to prepare properly for this game and thus chose the Ragozin Defense.
Jan-03-12  computer chess guy: The Ragozin is certainly playable, and not uncommon at the GM level.
Jan-03-12  Shams: <The Ragozin is certainly playable, and not uncommon at the GM level.>

Kramnik certainly agrees with you:

But then, it wouldn't surprise me if he also agreed that 4...Be7 was "more solid".
