The game was quite unfortunate for the Ukrainian from the very opening. As he noted in the commentary to Susan Polgar "Just entire game was a torture for me." The former world champion suggested after the game that Anton wasn't acquainted with the type of the position they got, because the plan with 16...f6 and 17...Bf7 is clearly unsuccessful.

KRAMNIK - KOROBOV

"White wins positionally after 21.а6! bxa6 22.b4," Kramnik said. Houdini marks taking on a6 as a blunder, however, in Kramnik's opinion Black's position is hopeless in case of 21...b6 22.cxb6 Qxb6 23.b3 as well. 

Russian wasted most of his advantage with 29.Rb7? but his opponent made several mistakes in the time trouble: first he missed a chance of surrounding c6-pawn (31...Be8), then he weakened his king: 32...g6?. This has made the loss for Black inevitable. Kramnik could win immediately if not missing 38.Qb4! Exactly this made Vladimir not completely satisfied with the game, "I should have seen mate in three."
