KID is broken

In honor of Kramnik’s domination over Nakamura’s Kind’s Indian Defense, and his press conference afterwards where he indicated that he feels the defense is basically unsound, let’s take a look at a micro he played at the Amber Blindfold ternament way back in 2001. I wouldn’t use this game as proof that the KID is flawed, but it does make a amateur blindfold player feel better about his blindfold blunders.. it even happens to 2700+ players!
