|Nov-11-05|| ||amuralid: wow! Another GK gem.|
|Apr-27-07|| ||scholes: Kasparov must have been angry after losing 1st game with Anand so he devoured him in the 2nd game|
|May-04-07|| ||iccsumant: why not 14...Ke7? That looks like a much better move!|
|Jan-05-08|| ||krippp: <iccsumant>: <14...Ke7> loses quickly to <15.Nc6+!>.
Pretty much regardless of what Black plays (<bxc6> or <Ke8>), White will then proceed with <Bxc5> followed by <Rxf6>. Now there's all kinds of scary stuff waiting to happen, such as <Ne4-f6#>, or <Rxf7 Kxf7 Qh5+ g6 Rf1+>...
I haven't really analyzed - or seen it analyzed - very deeply, but the idea of moving the king out of the way seems to possibly work, if done by <14...Kf8>.|
|Apr-28-08|| ||humangraymatter: Fascinating victory from Kasparov!|
|May-23-08|| ||transhuman7: Amazing play by Kasparov. A good example of why he dominated chess for so long.|
|May-26-08|| ||analysethat: <I love the queen manouevering from d1-h5-h4-e1-c3.> Good comment and I agree. i saw the moves to h5 and h4 as individual moves, but Kasparov included them as part of a bigger plan. This cleared d1 for the rook and got the queen on to the black squares so that black had to choose which side to defend. Anand chasing the queen around just made the queen go where it wanted to go. (not that there was much choice). Seeing especially his earlier games I have always marvelled that Kasparov is especially good with his knights and in way he mobilises his Rook so that it comes to d1 as part of an assault. |
Wonder what Anand was thinking when he went for his knight sac.
|May-06-09|| ||Lyink: Other possibilities also lead to mate. If:
30. .. Qe5
Then white has:
31. ... Qxf6 30. Qd6+ Ke8 31. Nf7#
31. ... Kd8 30. Qxf8#
|May-06-09|| ||Lyink: Oops its 29... Qe5 etc...|
|Jul-16-09|| ||pericles of athens: looks to me like move25 Qc7 is checkmate. right? if so, why wouldn't special K play it? seems obvious to me. or am i crazy?|
|Jul-16-09|| ||blacksburg: looks like mate to me too...what gives?|
|Jul-16-09|| ||Shams: 25.Qc7+ Bd7|
|Jul-16-09|| ||pericles of athens: thank you shams. good call. i knew the answer seemed too easy!|
|May-16-10|| ||MrMelad: This is an unbeleiveably strong game by Kasparov, 14.Bc5 is very hard to refute, of course rybka gives 14..Kf8 as the best contiuation but after 14..Kf8 15.Nc5 its not easy for black to continue, his queen must defend the back rank against the white queen so the bishop on c5 hangs with a check threat and white no longer has to worry about recovering his material deficit. Thus he has to play 15..Bxe3 16.Nxe3 axb5 and reach a very unpleasent position for black, though it might be drawn with percise computer play.|

17.Nxb5 for instance looks very strong for white.
Taking the bishop with 14..axb5 was probably the human move though it loses by force to the text Garry played, which is suggested by rybka as the best and only winning moves until 21..Qe3 when white is suddenly +3 and winning with all kind of mating threats.
Rybka doesn't find the moves so easily starting with 14..axb5, giving just +0.4 at first but after playing through Garry's deep lines and forcing moves it changes to +3, meaning winning by a piece!
|Aug-17-10|| ||sevenseaman: Positioning of the two White Knights is decisive. The main line 10. 0-0 has merit!|
|Sep-11-10|| ||rapidcitychess: I played this in Guess-The-Move. Hard to play like Kasparov against Anand, wow.|
|Dec-25-10|| ||jmboutiere: Rybka 3 considers 14...Kf8 equalising (0:04.44) and 14...ab5 as almost decisive for white + 1.99 (0:02.14)|
|May-24-11|| ||nolanryan: kasparov so thoroughly owned anand during their careers|
|Dec-26-11|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: The Queendom !!|
|Mar-03-12|| ||Xeroxx: Looks like home prep from Kasparov.|
|Mar-03-12|| ||ceebo: If 14...Kf8 then 15.Rxf6!. The only two viables moves are now 15...exd4 and 15...Bxd4 but both fail to 16.Bh6!!.|
I currently have Stockfish showing +4 for White in both lines.
Don't ask me to explain but the idea seems to be Qf3 or Qh5 followed by Raf1.
|Mar-04-12|| ||Penguincw: Nice final move. There are no good checking squares, and Kasparov is threatening mate with Qc7 and Nd6 or Qd6 and Nc7.|
|May-29-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: GOTD: The Thrashing of Tilburg
|Dec-16-12|| ||leka: my 32mgz computer plays 12.knight e5!? 1 minutes 50 seconds tought.Anand should had played 10..o-o or a short castle before.Without 0-0 Anand is in trouble|
|Dec-17-12|| ||Fusilli: <Penguincw: Nice final move. There are no good checking squares, and Kasparov is threatening mate with Qc7 and Nd6 or Qd6 and Nc7.>|
And 29...Qe5 fails to 30.Nxf6+ and mate follows.
