   Jun-09-10 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: Geez... why is it that when Kramnik draws a game (and most games at super-GM level are draws) he's evil, but if someone like Carlsen/Topalov draws he's playing fighting chess? Case in point, anyone going to tell me that Kramnik was playing for the draw here? Carlsen vs Kramnik, ...
 
   Jun-06-10 Kramnik vs L Bruzon Batista, 2006 (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: <I think 25.Bc7, setting up 26.Bxf7+, is the !! move.> It's not obvious, but the point is revealed if Black tries running with 27...Kf6, then 28.Bd8+! Rxd8 29.Qe6+ and Black gets mated in a few moves.

CruyffTurn: I tend to think Lékó lost a little of his mojo after the match against Kramnik 2004.

CruyffTurn: Good point <thegoodanarchist> I hadn't thought of that.

CruyffTurn: Anyone else smell @#$%*&!# around here?
 
   Apr-13-10 Sicilian, Boleslavsky Variation, 7.Nb3 (B59) (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: 7.Nb3 just leads to an equal game. 7.Nf3 planning h3, Re1, b3, Bb2 is slightly more testing, but Black is still fine.
 
   Mar-21-10 Ponomariov vs Karjakin, 2010 (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: Fruit gives 16...h6 17.exf6 hxg5 18.b3 Nxd2 19.Nxd2 Qxf6 20.Ne4 Qg6 21.gxf5 Rfe8 evaluating it as +0.09

CruyffTurn: <HeMateMe> I'm having a brew right now! I lived in Shepherd's Bush for about a year, nice part of town.
 
   Mar-04-10 Ruy Lopez, Open (C80) (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: <rapidcitychess: How do you get through the open Ruy without gambiting a pawn?> Not sure what you mean. Just follow the main lines, White gets his pawn back after a couple of moves. If Black tries to hang on to it, then White gets a good game Fischer vs P Trifunovic, 1961
 
   Mar-04-10 Anand vs Korchnoi, 1993 (replies)
 
CruyffTurn: <BarcelonaFirenze: I don't agree. It's time trouble. Probably, in Melody Amber Tournament...> Probably it's the blindfold round, Korchnoi would've been 72 when this was played, so I think we can forgive him...
