Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-07-08  Karpova: The DGT Clock Simul saw Kramnik facing GM Werle and IM Sebag. Kramnik won both games and that's the other one: Kramnik vs M Sebag, 2008

Time control: 1 hour and 30 minutes + 30 seconds per move


<Jan Werle said he started too optimistically as he really wanted to take the chance to beat Kramnik.>

Feb-22-09  amuralid: If 21. ... Bd5 22. Ng5 Bxg2 23. Qe6+ Kh8 24. Nf7+ Rf7 (24. ... Kg8? leads to a smothered mate after Nh6+) 25. Qf7 with the threat of Re8 wins for white.

I'm not so sure of what happens if black varies on the 22nd move.
