|Oct-20-12|| ||Rookiepawn: Please forget my previous comment: 34. Rb6 Ra8 35. Bc8 I guess.|
Next time I'm having my chessboard before commenting,
|Dec-27-12|| ||hadess: Hey guys, why topalov didn't play 29 Rd6 instead of Bb7?
|Dec-27-12|| ||Jim Bartle: As written above, after 29...Rd6, 30 Kb2 is still threatening mate.|
|Apr-03-13|| ||leka: The founder of the chessmetrics Jeff Sonas is totally wron.Jeff Sonas is a joke.Jeff Sonas a tough school Stanford graduate a honor student a master of science of maths.Jeff Sonas do not know thhe Gauss bell curve stats!!!! Jeff Sonas gives the highest ever a tourmanent chess results to Karpov in Linares in 1994.J.Sonas gives the wrong 2899 rating for Karpov 11/13 84.16% score for Karpov in Linares in 1994.The real Karpov score in Linares in 1994 was 3016.8 rating.There is an even higher score by A.Alekhine in San Remo in 1930 92.8% score fo Alekhine gives Alekhine a rating 3042.Jeff Sonas wrongfully downgrades the older eneratios of chess players.Jeff Sonas gives to Paul Morphy a rating 2743.That is a joke!! Paul Morphy was closer to 2900 rating player.Bobby Fischer put on the top spot the best chess player award to Paul Morphy.Fischer the top two were 1.Paul Morphy 2.Howard Stauton|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Phony Benoni: It's Kasparov's 50th birthday.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||morfishine: Dazzling game thats immune from having a pun attached to it. |
With that said, I would've ventured "And the King Topal Over" or something like that
|Apr-13-13|| ||HeMateMe: Must be wonderful to be able to see this on the chessboard.|
<"Veselin makes slippery King"> [my attempt at a pun]
|Apr-13-13|| ||fgh: <leka>: We already know that you are a troll, but thanks for the extra evidence.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Stonehenge: 24...Kb6 24. Nb3 Nxd5 is equal, but I read somewhere Topalov didn't want to spoil the fun. Kudos to him if that is true.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Arap Kios: Happy birthday 'beast from Baku' am from kenya|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <HeMateMe: Must be wonderful to be able to see this on the chessboard.>|
Certainly easier than seeing it on a Monopoly board.
|Apr-13-13|| ||master of defence: Are the chessgames.com repeating games to the GOTD?|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Nezhmetdinov: <parisattack: Not for me, as brilliant as it is. I think Kasparov's storyline has given it a special aura.>
I hadn't played this game through in some years, I thought I remembered how good it was, but I found myself laughing out loud and exclaiming over some of the moves in a way I very rarely do nowadays. It reminded me of why chess is there and why I fell in love with it over 20 years ago now, when I was a teenager. THIS is the one, right here.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||JohnBoy: <master of defence: Are the chessgames.com repeating games to the GOTD?> Who cares - this could be GotD at least once every two or three years without imparting any sense of stagnancy. What a wonderful game.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||catlover: Happy birthday, Kasparov! I wonder if he Is still involved in Russian politics.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||kevin86: By ANY definition,this is a great game. Happy Birthday Kaspy!|
|Apr-13-13|| ||mohitm: Why is this consider Kasparov's Immortal?
I would much prefer his 16th game with Karpov. That was Domination(with a capital D) over an equally great player, at the pinnacle of fighting chess, in a World Championship, in a truly virtuoso-style.
Sure, the rook sac and king hunt looks much cooler, but that's not everything.
|Apr-13-13|| ||Bobsterman3000: greatest of all time|
|Apr-23-13|| ||John T. Lutz: 45. Rd1 Kc2. 46 Rd2 Kc1. repeat This game *should* of been a draw!!!|
|May-25-13|| ||bennytakeapawn: kasparov's immortal|
|Aug-27-13|| ||notyetagm: Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999|

|Nov-28-13|| ||alfiere nero: Hi. I'm new at this, so please forgive me if I'm not reading it correctly, but it seems to me that this beautiful game could actually have ended earlier. See what you think:
29 Kb1-b2, threatening Qc3-b3+
If 30 Qd5xb3, then c2xb3#
Wouldn't that work?
|Nov-28-13|| ||Jim Bartle: 29...Qd4 would then force an exchange of queens and end the threat.|
|Nov-28-13|| ||alfiere nero: Thanks Jim!|
|Nov-28-13|| ||alfiere nero: I see now, Jim, that you had already addressed my question (before I asked it) in your reply to hadess. Sorry, I'm just starting out, here.|
