Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-16  Marmot PFL: I like white's rook maneuvers in this game.
Sep-13-16  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

Kramnik vs Topalov, 2014

Kramnik vs A Giri, 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
<smile>

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

Aronian vs A Giri, 2016

Nicely done, Aronian, nicely done.
