  suenteus po 147: Kramnik narrowly pulls a draw out of the jaws of defeat.

  plang: Played in the fourth round; Kramnik and Adams went on to tie for first with Svidler at 6-3. 6..b5!? is the Vitolins Gambit. I. Sokolovin his book on 4 Qc2 recommends 7 c5 as an alternative for White though it is rarely played. 9 f3 was new; 9 Nf3 is the popular move here. 23..Rc8?! and 24..a5?! led to complications dangerous for Black. However, in mutual time trouble, Adams generated enough counterplay to earn a draw though if Kramnik had found 36 Qd6 White would have maintained a solid advantage.
