Vladimir Kramnik is satisfied with the 3rd game of the match that takes place in Zurich   

Kramnik started the 3rd game of the "training" match against Levon Aronian with the king's pawn. That was almost as unexpected for the spectators, as Aronian's decision in the previous game.

The encounter, in which Armenian grandmaster's decision of sacrificing his queen didn't work out, surely became the most brilliant one of  the first part of the match bringing Russian GM victory. After the game Kramnik, in the interview to Evgeny Surov, shared his impressions on the battle. Namely, he called move 1.e4 "the strongest in the game" noting that he has been preparing it. However, Kramnik admitted that: "If this was a match for the title, I'd rather play something more familiar to me."
