Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-04  chess man: gotta love Kramnik's style
Dec-10-04  chess man: I am quite fond of the Petrov;I think it's reputation of being drawish is only half true.(just a matter of opinion I suppose)
Dec-10-04  PinkPanther: Yeah, half true as in a .5 point.
Dec-11-04  chess man: Yes the defence also(I guess that it would have to be if it's drawish) is solid and I have done quite well playing the Petrov.
Mar-18-07  Poisonpawns: What possesed Ivanchuk to play so risky in this game?
Jun-17-07  Hot Logic: Maybe he had white and wanted to win? Kramnik seems to handle complications really well however.
