|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!!!|

|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.|
|Dec-10-13|| ||epicchess: 30...Qc4? lost the game for Topalov. It is an unprofessional move, and the move 30...Rhe8! gives Topalov a substantial advantage, at my evaluation a high -/=|
|Dec-10-13|| ||Everett: <epicchess: 30...Qc4? lost the game for Topalov. It is an <unprofessional> move>|
read the above posts, professional.
|Jan-10-14|| ||rookknight: awesome middle game|
|Feb-06-14|| ||amateur05: I gave the position after 24 ... cxd4 to Stockfish running on my 4 core PC. It gives an evaluation of +6 after about a minute. The winning line begins with 28. Ra7 but this is already well known.|
|Feb-06-14|| ||offramp: One player plays, the other applauds. I prefer games where both players play.|
|Feb-06-14|| ||offramp: It's great fun to go through the kibitzing on this game and see the amount of times people have, through a haze of tears, blown their noses and tremulously typed, <<boo hoo!> Kasparov's Immortal>... Then with a shaky step stood and saluted the great man through the ether.|
|Feb-27-14|| ||CalvinT: I ran this game through Fritz 12 yesterday and wrote about it on my chess blog. http://tinyurl.com/nytfxsc
It's interesting to note that 24. Rxd4 is not the best move since white is better off declining it with 24 ...Kb6. With that said. Can this really be the best game ever played?|
|Mar-25-14|| ||mrandersson: Chess tiger 2007.1 On a netbook intel atom N2600 friz 12 and windows 7 home pro likes the move that was played on move 24 after only a few minutes. |
Chess tiger 2007.1 is I know quite a old engine and weak by now standards but its still plays really nice chess. Its funny that even on weak hardware like a netbook some engines can play really strong moves.
Stockfish DD also likes the move when using 2 cores.
|Apr-03-14|| ||epicchess: Everett, don't get sassy with a player far above your level.|
|Apr-06-14|| ||tranquilsimplicity: <Arap Kios> Habari gani? Vipi? How long have you been playing? Are you in Nairobi or Kenya or 'outside'? #|
|May-03-14|| ||kluto: I don't believe 30...Qc4 was a mistake: after 30...Rhe8 31.Rb6 White has to win anyway. The losing mistake was 24...cxd4?, where 24...Kb6! would have been winning.|
|Sep-16-14|| ||Everett: <epicchess: Everett, don't get sassy with a player far above your level.>|
Haha, schmoodle, you're cute when you're angry.
Guessing you checked out the kibitzes. How's the crow taste?
