    And it was a good win too - on the black side of Sveshnikov.

    For those who are still awake and watching TATA Steel Live...Kramnik-Anand is highly recommended...

    Exciting game and Kramnik got away with 14.g4 more than he should have but eventually made too many mistakes.

    Kramnik's transition from being the most boring player years ago into the most exciting one is amazing!

    But somehow I feel he is not too concerned about the results, and playing with the goal of having ''fun''. Against Duda - was yet another game where traditionally solid Kramnik kept on creating weaknesses around his King in order to attempt to create active play opportunities.

    Absolutely fantastic effort by Vishy so far!~ Hard to imagine the guy is almost 50yo!

    Well if his rating keeps dropping like a stone, wonder if he'll be invited for more fun next time
    20 points in 8 games

    I think he feels he is at the stage of his career where he does not want to worry about rating. His latest audio interview (in Russian unfortunately) is available on chess-news.ru and he does not appear to sound ''discontent with life and chess'' despite his poor result but we will see.

    Both Carlsen and Kramnik are playing interesting openings today. Good to see some top chess players deviating from boring long home-prepared lines.

    Magnus' game reminds me of a player at our club who habitually plays both (a3 and h3)/(...a6 and ...h6) within the first eight moves or so, mainly to avoid any annoying B-N5 pins. At least establishing a pawn on d5 first has made for a less smashable version. I've found that proving any advantage with black against a white version of the same thing starting with 1.d4 isn't easy.
