Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-05  Bogdanel: I am surprised no one ever kibitzed this game. An amazing demonstration of force and power calculation by Kramnik against one of the strongest GM of that time
Sep-09-05  suenteus po 147: <Bogdanel> Thanks for drawing attention to this game. It's interesting how a straightforward attacking move like 15...Na5 ends up being the beginning of the end. I can imagine how frustrating the following moves must have been for Yusupov, since no matter what move he makes after that, Kramnik has found a better one in response. On the occasion that a super-rated player (2100+, yahoo ratings) condescends to play me online, it usually goes this way, with me in the role of black (as in this game) being outplayed every single move, no matter how good my moves are.
Sep-09-05  Bogdanel: Yes, know the feeling. Perhaps 15...bxc5 would not have led to such a crushing defeat, but white is clearly better, and Yusupov probably didn't want to enter into an inferior end-game with Kramnik. He chose complications in order to save the game, yet Kramnik outplayed him even there.
May-12-12  Everett: 18.Nxe6!! Note how the Black R lacks any safe and worthwhile squares. The e-pawn is an absolute beast in this game.
May-12-12  Shams: The Harrwitz Attack is <5.Bf4>, yes? How is its reputation?
May-12-12  Everett: <Shams> It is currently played quite often by Aronian from both sides, so it seems there is rich play there.
Jun-11-12  LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:

Kramnik vs Yusupov, 1995.
Your score: 42 (par = 29)


Jun-20-18  iano: The move 12 e4 and 13 e5 are strange. Kramnik delays o-o until move 15. Can anybody explain why did he move the pawn 3 times before o-o.
Jun-20-18  Olavi: This was of course the Moscow leg of the rapid cup, Yusupov would hardly fall this way with enough time, but still nice.
