  drleper: Impressive win by Kramnik! Great to watch those queenside pawns rolling down; white doesn't feel the piece deficit at all.
Sep-13-16  blackdranzer: This is what I like about krammik...principled chess,a beast with the white pieces, and plays like a computer literally...this is a gem of a game
Sep-13-16  blackdranzer: Especially the move 17. Be7!...which then enables white rooks to invade black camp...
Sep-13-16  Mudphudder: Other than being known for a super positional guru, I've noticed that Kramnik is an absolute PRO at milking the pawns. He is the most skilled GM I have ever seen at marching a pawn down to board to promotion. If you enjoyed what he did with his pawns in this game then you will certainly enjoy these others:

Kramnik vs Aronian, 2012

Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2001

Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994

Kramnik vs Topalov, 2014

Sep-13-16  tonsillolith: In the first Kramnik vs Aronian game Mudphudder listed, there is also this:

<Honza Cervenka: Let Kramnik to create a passed Pawn and you can just resign. This game reminds me Kramnik vs Aronian, 2006 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2007 or Kramnik vs Aronian, 2010>

Sep-13-16  Mudphudder: Perhaps these games also say something about poor Aronian's game? LOL! It's actually hard to believe that Kramnik had beat up on a super-GM like Aronian this badly, it must be some sort of conflict of their styles that just doesn't jive well with Aronian.
Sep-14-16  tonsillolith: Hmm, good point. Perhaps the correct observation is that while Kramnik is okay at handling his pawns, Aronian is TERRIBLE at handling his opponents'.

well yes, when his opponent is Kramnik

Oct-05-16  tonsillolith: Aronian read through our posts and felt self-conscious, so he practiced up on utilizing passed pawns.

Nicely done, Aronian, nicely done.
