Dec-01-14  paramount: wowowow nice game. GOTD!!!!
Dec-02-14  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 16...Rab8, 16...Rac8 begins the plan of ...Na7 and ...b5 as in the game Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1968
Dec-02-14  Bobsterman3000: 26... fxe4 was instant disaster.
Dec-02-14  Kaspablanca: 1Nf3, classical Kramnik.
Dec-09-14  Boris Schipkov: This game with my notes in
Dec-12-14  visayanbraindoctor: Kramnik handled the attack well when GM Mista gave him the opportunity. 22. d5 is a fine blocking move, that sequesters most of Black's pieces in the Queenside, and preserves his light colored bishop for the Kingside.

Few comments on Kramnik's well played attack. Yet had Kramnik failed to spot the mate in one after 29.. Qb7, I would bet there would be reams of extra posts on this page extolling the virtue of Kramnik's wonderful propensity to miss one move mates.

Dec-13-14  norami: 29. . . Qb7 was my kind of move. You never know.
