I maintain "Kramnik jokes". If you have other nice kramnik jokes, email 'em to me!

thomaspaine: This is going to be one interesting game! Reminds me of this joke that was posted at cg a while ago: <"When I am White, I win because I am White. When I am Black, I win because I am Bogoljubov." - Efim Bogoljubov Kramnik would have replied: "When I am black, I lose because I

thomaspaine: <square dance>: See, I could cite 3-4 more, but then you object that they have a bias against Kramnik. Can you cite ONE GM that has come to public defence of Kramnik?

thomaspaine: Nice post <diction>. Completely agree.

thomaspaine: <On the contrary, Kramnik has praised the play of Topalov, Morozevich and other reputed fighters many times.> True enough (in fact Moro's bio has a nice quote on him by Kramnik). But it sounds a bit odd to praise other people for taking risks while playing chess, while ...

thomaspaine: <Gentlemen, set your clocks> You mean, Fritzes and Shredders.

thomaspaine: <square dance>: I think <will2c> took it as a personal insult. Perhaps he did overreact. Compared to what goes on in the Kramnik page, that was peanuts :) <i dont think anonmymous kibitzers should run around calling public figures cowards> I guess we disagree ...

thomaspaine: There is no need to "keep giving checks" I think maybe even the "quiet" move is fastest: Nxg5 fxg5 2. Bg6 xx 3. Qh8#.

thomaspaine: Heard on cguser: <Topalov is getting boring with these sacs and cheap tactics. He should try playing a deep positional game like deep Drawnik and then offer a draw on move 20.>

thomaspaine: <mandar> Ah. Well, sometime later then. Thanks though.
