    I will say this. Although Kramnik is a great player, Magnus is the greatest player since Bobby Fischer. He is a lot younger and has more drive in his power attacks and his opening repetoire. He can defend tough positions and he can break them down just as easily. He is relentless and he is like a brick wall. What Magnus also is though is cocky. He is also arrogant and sometimes can over confident but I feel that many chess players are. I myself can be a bit arrogant and cocky at times in my chess games. In a blitz game of chess between him and alexandra kosteniuk, when she made a very good move in the endgame, he moved a piece and tried to move it back once he let go. She stopped the clock to get a TD and when she did, he got up, scowled at her and walked out of the room without so much as a good game. He can be a bit rude sometimes. I think fame tends to go into the heads of many successful people including chess players. I'm not saying Magnus is rude but he can be sometimes. I am a huge fan of his and I admire his strength and vigor. Just thought I should give my opinion.

    Have Kramnik face Carlsen in 10 rounds and Carlsen will lay the smackdown.

    Last time I checked, these next few years are Kramnik's last before his decline imo. Old age will get to him. 

    For the record, Kramnik is by FAR the player that I've studied the most, I love seeing his games. He's one of the nicest guys you'll see at those super tournaments.

    Which is why he will be for all time my favorite chess player.

    Kramnik is my favourite player and I would love to see a match between Kramnik and Carlsen, but Carlsen is stronger than Kramnik

    I saw the video of the blitz game. He resigned as soon as he saw he had made an illegal move. It was a blitz game. His reaction was fully acceptable. Watch other blitz games and see how the loser reacts.

    I find this very interesting. What positions does Kramnik play better than Magnus? How might you classify such positions? I, being the patzer that I am, don't know how to make such distinctions, but I'm always ready to learn!

    Personally I think this is overemphasised. Carlsen and Kramnik are both very good in simplified technical positions but Carlsen is just the better player. I will concede however, that Kramnik is more likely to emerge from the opening with a slight edge as white when compared to Carlsen.

    Yes, I don't think there are any positions Kramnik plays better than Carlsen, apart from the starting position. Kramnik's opening preparation is clearly better, but if not for that the difference between the two might be bigger than the 100 Elo points it is today. I think this irks Kramnik though, since in almost every interview with him I've read the last years he tries to explain why Carlsen probably isn't actually better than him (i.e. Carlsen is #1 because of non chess related reasons, Kramnik doesn't really want to be #1, he is an artist that doesn't care as much about results as Carlsen, he plays with a handicap since he has a family, he can't see any reason why Carlsen should be better at all than himself, etc). But I think the truth is that Carlsen just is the stronger player of the two in all parts of the game apart from the opening preparation.

    I chalk up Kramnik's superiority in the opening prep area, more to experience and knowing his own preferences better. I think that Magnus' more experimental style is what clearly sets him apart. It is the fact that in no man's land, when he shows himself superior, that he really shows how skilled he is overall. Other than being immitated in the future, Magnus' eventual concrete choices, through experience, will set him apart from all of his predecessors even more so.
