A close call for Kramnik. Was exciting to follow.

Dec-23-15  znsprdx: What a swindle- I'm certain Kramnik knew he was lost. Vocaturo was truly unlucky as Cassia seduced him into the tragic Kf2 -

This surely is win for white 42. to move

there are several candidates other than the uncertain (panic) choice of e5 made in the game

my favorite would be f4 with the idea of f5 crushing. It might leave the chance for a timely Ra6

Less flamboyant would be the simple Re2 if Rb8 43.Ra6 and Black can offer a handshake because Rxb4?

Upon further thought perhaps 42. Rf2 might even be a brilliancy

but since I'm just a fish-patzer-woodpusher ....feel free to ignore this.

Dec-23-15  znsprdx: ps - subsequently had a chance to use Crafty on BABAS program -looks like f4 IS best
