See Emily Play #5

Kramnik and Fritz had another draw yesterday. Initially it looked as though the computer would win easily as it had a significant advantage in terms of development. But Kramnik managed to simplify the position by exchanging pieces and lead the computer into a Bishop vs Knight endgame.

He was then able to construct a fortress and was happy to move his king back and forth between two squares until the computer had to offer a draw because it was unable to penetrate Kramnik's defense.

I must admit Kramnik is doing much better than I had expected...or maybe it's the computer that's doing worse. Either way it is now Fritz 2.5 - Kramnik 1.5 with two games remaining.
