The Modern Defence According to Kramnik

I was fortunate to read this great interview with Kramnik done by Vladimir Tkachiev. I was very impressed with Kramnik's responses and his personability. Afterwards the main question that kept coming to my mind was "Does Kramnik ever play the Modern Defence?" And the answer is yes though not that often.

Here is one of his efforts vs Grischuk:
Grischuk vs Kramnik
Kramnik tries really hard to win that rook ending but even I can probably hold that.

Kramnik plays the pirc vs Nakamura.

That gives me confidence to try that type of position with two pieces and pawns for the queen. Definitely on my list of positions to analyze. Check back in a few days and I may have that posted.
