  1. what a game! I am guessing however it is somewhat unsound or sub-optimal play by Kramnik, so we won't be seeing it in textbooks…but I could be wrong.

  2. Thanks Jan. The game was interesting. One tiny observation here, you kind of tend to lose your voice at the end of the sentence, which can make it a bit hard for non-native English speakers to follow what you are saying.

  3. I like the way the King and Bishop outplayed the Queen at the end to stop it from giving a perpetual check.

  4. Pls, What chess program and engine do you use for this analysis..?

  5. Kramniks play is so elegant and pure, alite bite like Fischer in his prime, unlike Carlsen that sems alitebite clumsy (But effective).

  6. Kramnik in Tal mood !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Very smart analyses by Mr. Gustafsson. Keep this valuable work!

  8. Bluebum should change his name to Blueballs, i reckon he will win more games

  9. In my opinion the "Sparkasse" needs a new name – "Sparkassen Cup" is as sexy as
    "Inkontinenz – Cup". Very suspicious!

  10. 13:29 look at the advantage meter… there is a better move after f6.. Knxg6 threatening queen and rook-with a check 😉
