  tamar: Vlad the Ian-Paler!
May-04-15  Ulhumbrus: Following the exchange sacrifice - of whose consequences we may assume Kramnik had considerable foresight - Nepomniachchi does not manage to bring into play either his rooks or his queen's bishop. One alternative to 25...Qf6 is 25...c6

  Sokrates: It's really a pleasure to see Kramnik's manoeuverings of his pieces. As <Ulhumbrus> states Nepo never seems to find good places for his heavy pieces - there is something inevitable about his defeat - thanks to the brilliant play by Kramnik.
