Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-26-05  fgh: Nice endgame.
Jul-10-09  returnoftheking: If I am correct 23.g4 would be ok for white. Kf1 allows the bishop to occupy the b1-h7 diagonal.

f.e. 23.g4 h5 24. gxh Bxh3 25.Ng5 Be6 26. Nxe6 fxe 27.f4 Nd4 28. Kf2 Nxb3 29.Ke3 Ke7 30. Ke4 followed by f5 and according to Fritz 6 it's about equal. Active king and B compensate for the pawn.

Dec-13-10  Salaskan: It seems as though Kramnik really wanted to draw this one (and get some media attention for the 11-year-old prodigy), playing the Berlin and trading down to an opposite-colored bishops ending, but he was just too strong anyway.
