Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-26-08  KingG: Possibly Kramnik went too quickly into the endgame. Maybe it was better to simply play 20.Nd5 and improve his position. 18. Nc3 might also have been better than 18.Nf4, since after ...Nc6, White now has the f4 square available for his Queen.
Apr-26-08  euripides: At the end I suppose Black is saved by the back rank threats which allow him to get control of the d file. If White could exchange rooks he would have good winning chances.
Apr-26-08  KingG: <euripides> That's what I thought too, but even if we imagine White having his pawn on h3 instead of h2 for example, then 21...Rad8 22.Rfd1 Rxd6 23.Rxd6 Re1+ 24.Kh2 Ra1 still looks quite drawish, although I'm not completely sure. Maybe White can play Rd2 and still find a way to win.
