Howell, David – Kramnik, Vladimir

pgn4web personal account on Kramnik and the Petrov, part 2: since the previous game at Tilburg 1998 I did not attend in person any other top event until December 2009. More than 10 years had passed when I was in the tournament hall in London, watching Kramnik sacrificing a piece in the same variation of the Petrov. Again, I did not witness a masterpiece sacrifice win from Kramnik, but the similarity between the two games amazed me.
