Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-28-15  Martin Riggs: ...and he's back again in the 2800 (2800.6) club. ;0] Congrats.

P.S. But tomorrow will blow a new wind (vs Carlsen). :D

Dec-28-15  CountryGirl: Sjugirov did better against Kramnik this year than last year at Qatar; at least, he was not blown away this time! Kramnik had to work a lot harder. I would have liked to see the final position played out further.
Dec-28-15  blackdranzer: Commentators missed kramnik's Qa7+ and the Ba4 idea...nice endgame play once again... Vs magnus he has black pieces 2mmorrow and as usual kram will play for a draw..go kramnik..!

  thegoodanarchist: This is a grinding win by a former WC against maybe a future WC. Black is ever so close to equalizing, for the longest time, but the steady Kramnik keeps the advantage and eventually converts it to a technical win, which Sjugirov strives to thwart, eventually to no avail.

  patzer2: Instead of 19...0-0-0?! allowing 20. a4 , the more flexible 19...Be7 = (0.13 @ 23 depth, Deep Fritz 15) appears to give Black better counter chances.
Dec-30-15  mdshivaram: Kramnik maintains his dynamic play very well. And that's his attitude!
