1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nf3 Nxe4 5.d4 d5 6.Bd3 Nc6 7.0–0 Be7 8.Re1 Bg4 9.c4 Nf6 10.Nc3 Bxf3 11.Qxf3 Nxd4 12.Qd1 Ne6 13.cxd5 Nxd5 14.Bb5+ c6 15.Nxd5 cxb5 16.Bf4 Nxf4 17.Rxe7+ Kf8 18.Re5 Qd6 19.Qd2!?


an interesting novelty. At first the computer - Fritz gave a near -2 evaluation for this move but after a little while, the evalaution start changing to o.ooo = . Perhaps this move is part of Naiditsch preparation. [19.Rf5 Rd8 20.Ne3 Qxd1+ 21.Rxd1 Rxd1+ Fritz theory end here 22.Nxd1] 19...Ng6 the GM Commentator on ICC GM Ronen Har-Zvi was surprised why Kramnik didn't take the knight on e5 with 19...Qxe5 20.Ree1 f6 21.Rad1 Kf7 ?! 21...Rae8 straight away maybe better 22.Qe3 Rae8 23.Ne7 Qxe7 24.Qb3+ Kf8 25.Rxe7 Rxe7 26.Qxb5 Rae8 27.g3 Ne5 28.Kg2 Nc6 29.b4 a6 30.Qb6 h6 31.a4 Ne5 32.Qc5 Kg8 33.b5 axb5 34.axb5 Nf7 35.h4 Kh8 36.Rd2 Kg8 37.Kh3 Kh8 38.f4 Kg8 39.h5 Kh8 40.Qf5 Nd8 41.Rd7 Ne6 42.Qd5 1-0
