Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-04  lordhazol: Black is better but time must be over.
Feb-01-04  fatbaldguy: Time may have been a factor but, in addition, I think the bishop has no good squares left - e.g., Be1 is met by 38 ... h4, e.g. 39 Qg4 Q:e1 and white is a piece down (if 40 Qh5 to threaten f7 then 40 ... Qg3+ and mate). If 38 Rc7 then ... Rc1 39 Qd6 h4 leads to mate. And if 38 Ba1 then .. Rc1 again, with the same threat.
Feb-01-04  TrueFiendish: White is lost. 38.Be1 can be met by ...Rc1 as well as ...h4. Piece lost, Qh1 or g1 mate looming; it's all horrible.
Feb-01-04  Catfriend: What's with 38.♖a1 ?
Feb-01-04  TrueFiendish: How 'bout 38.Ra1 h4 39.Qg4(only)Qd3.
Feb-01-04  fatbaldguy: <Catfriend> Good one, I hadn't considered it. But I think TrueFiendish has the right line in his post, since I think both the e3 and d4 pawns will fall after 40 Be1.
Feb-02-04  Catfriend: Yes, that's generally what I thought also. It seems to win.
Aug-01-06  Elroch: 18. Rc1 and 19. Qb3 look positionally suspect to me. After black exchanges the white squared bishops he has a better piece to the end of the game (where white's restricted bishop proves significant). Perhaps 18. Be2 is worth considering, even though white still seems rather cramped?
Aug-01-06  fromoort: Is this "THE" Michael Adams? And is this really a simul? If not, what does "sim" in the name of the event signify?
Aug-02-06  Elroch: It was a 10 board simul, and Adams was the only winner against Kasparov.
Aug-02-06  fromoort: <Elroch>Thanks.
Jan-23-07  ianD: Adams was ? 17 at the time

  lostemperor: This is, if I remember correctly, a simul through satalite connection. Kasparov was playing four people orso and Adams has yet to become 17.
May-16-07  Crowaholic: One idea that hasn't been mentioned is 38. Rxf7+ Kxf7 39. Qc7+ trying to draw with perpetual check. But White has only two more checks after 39. ..Be7! and trying to lure Black into a stalemate doesn't work out either: 40. Qxe7+ Kxe7 41. f6+ Kxf6 42. Bd2 Rxd2 and White still has two legal moves, both of which are answered with Qxg2#. Even if there was a stalemate, Black should be able to avoid it e.g. by not taking the bishop.

I don't think it was a time problem. Kasparov just noticed that the position is dead lost.
