    I can't believe drawnik managed to turn that forced mate into a draw. sure there wasn't a lot of time, but still. he must be the biggest wussy there ever was.

    still, great and entertaining game!

    I`m pretty sure that you would find mate during last seconds on your clock

    hahah, yeah well, but I would've at least tried. what's another loss when you're 3-1 down already anyway.

    Why do you think that Kramnik did not try?

    I`m sure he tried because if he wanted to draw then he could force it before.
