Kramnik - Kasparov
Astana 2001

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. cxd5 Nxd5 5. e4 Nxc3 6. bxc3 Bg7 7. Nf3 c5 8. Be3 Qa5 9. Qd2 Nc6 10. Rc1 cxd4 11. cxd4 Qxd2+ 12. Kxd2 O-O 13. d5 Rd8 14. Ke1 Na5 15. Bg5 Bd7 16. Bd3 Rdc8 17. Ke2 e6 18. Rxc8+
   Perhaps fearing preparation, Kramnik avoids 18.Be3, with which he scored a convincing win over Loek Van Wely in Wijk aan Zee earlier this year. The text move is less ambitious but Black must be careful to avoid an endgame where White's active king is an important factor.
Rxc8 19. Rc1 Rxc1 20. Bxc1 exd5 21. exd5 b5 22. Bf4 Nc4!
   Improving on 22...Kf8. The isolated c pawn proves impossible to round up so long as Kasparov preserves his bishop pair.
23. Bxc4 bxc4 24. Be5 Bf8! 25. Nd2 Bb5 26. Ne4 f5 27. Nc3 Bd7 28. Ke3 Bc5+ 29. Bd4 Bb4 30. Be5
   Draw
1/2-1/2
