Kramnik vs Aronian 2012 / Games 3,4
Updated April 25, 2012
by National Life Master Loal DavisIn Game 3, courage and daring go to Aronian, but the point goes to Kramnik. This was a splendid fighting game that was a tribute to both players. Game 4 (see Comments) was a draw. The match is tied at one game apiece with two draws. Click on the board to step through the annotated game (Game 3). There was a Rapids game following the short draw in game 4 which does nothing for the score of the ‘real’ match. HOWEVER – It was an absolutely fearless win by Aronian with the black pieces in a Ruy Lopez (See Comments).
