  AgentRgent: Here Kramnik not only refused to draw, but gave up his material advantage in order to force a win 13 moves later!
Sep-03-05  fgh: A true masterpiece!
Sep-03-05  Queens Gambit: I dont see nothing fantastic in this game, take a look at this one, its a real masterpiece Karjakin vs Kramnik, 2004
Sep-04-05  fgh: And here the trolls go again :-)
Sep-04-05  Brown: Of course you will never find me playing Karpov or Kramnik, yet if for some strange reason it happens, I will never, ever, play the black side of the QGA against them.

  AgentRgent: Wow, Queens Gambit must really love this game, since he "dont see nothing fantastic in this game". While I like the game, I'm suprised by his glowing praise.
Sep-06-05  iron maiden: No problem there...just switch the two players around and make Karjakin white, and it's an instant classic.
Oct-21-05  Hesam7: <Brown> LoL. Does anybody know the time controls??
Mar-14-06  alexandrovm: by move 45 black's king is missplaced, this agressive king walked to his dead in this game. Nice game by Kramnik...

  Mateo: Despite Kramnik played very well from move from move 41 until the end, I wouldn't say this is <a real masterpiece>. Both players made too many inacurracies before the time control. The main ones are 38.Ra1? and 38...Kd5??. In fact 38.Ra1? was bad as it allowed 38...Ng4+! 39.hxg4 Rh2+ 40.Kf3 Rxb2 with a draw at least for Black.
Oct-05-10  rodrigochaves: I think 15. Bxd3 was a estrategic error. Why Karjakin gives the bishop pair.
