Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-16-10  yalie: Gelfand improves on Kramnik-Leko from Corus. But Bg2 and b4 are both dubious moves

  Everett: White has no wins in this line and a few losses after 10..c5
Mar-16-10  Marmot PFL: Just a horrible day for Kramnik, who played both games at less than 2400 level. He can get some rest tomorrow.
Mar-16-10  waustad: At least we see the end of the game. It stuck on 19. Bg2 live and nobody had a clue.
Mar-16-10  SetNoEscapeOn: This game reminds me somewhat of Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2008, where Carlsen likewise activated his kingside pawns and combined a bind on the light squares with an infiltration of the queenside.
Mar-18-10  OneArmedScissor: Black's knights.... domination through strength
Mar-28-10  notyetagm: Kramnik vs Gelfand, 2010

Game Collection: Pins against undefended pieces 31 ... Nd3xf2! White c2-rook pinned to undefended White d1-rook

Game Collection: OVERLOADED: first defender, only defender 31 .. Nd3xf2! f2-pawn has 3 defenders but first defender pinned

Mar-28-10  Atking: Kramnik is searching a plan around 15~20 moves 16.Nh4!? e.g 16...g6 17.Ndf3 ~18.Qc1 or 16...Rfe8 17.Nf5 Bf8 18.Nf3~19.Ne3 looks more in the hypermodern spirit of the opening.
