  Honza Cervenka: 17.Nxe4 Nxe4 18.Bxe4?? Qxh4 etc.
Oct-06-02  drukenknight: okay 17 Nxe Nxe4 18 Qxd8 R(f)xd8 19 Bxe4 does that lead to equality?

  Honza Cervenka: I don't think so. After 17.Nxe4 Nxe4 18.Qxd8 Rfxd8 19.Bxe4 exf5 20.Bxc6 (If 20.Bd3 then Ne5) bxc6 black has +1 pawn.
Oct-07-02  drukenknight: well in that Steinitz game that you claim shows the power of the bishop pair, white is down by 2 pawns but you claim he lost because of the B pair. Maybe it was the 2 pawns then, huh?

  Honza Cervenka: Rosenthal lost two pawns because of ineffectualness of his bishop and knight. But it is better to discuss that not here but directly in Rosenthal - Steinitz game.
Oct-07-02  drukenknight: you know the thing is Steinitz other B was blocked by a pawn on g6, so that some great example of a B pair. One B can't even hit anything. I suppose it double covered the g pawn or soemthing.

  Honza Cervenka: See my comment of S Rosenthal vs Steinitz, 1873
Nov-22-03  Benjamin Lau: This is such a cool game. Anand sacs a piece to try a devastating mating attack, but Kasparov manages to find a series of seven moves that forces exchanges all the way down to a won endgame, leaving Anand's attack completely cold.
Dec-31-04  morostyle: what a brutal counter by kasparov poor anand

  notyetagm: Wow, what a tremendous game by Kasparov. His tactical mastery is unsurpassed.

Was this a rapid game? I thought I once read that the Paris 1992 tournament was rapid.

Apr-03-06  TylerD: The eternal no1 beating the eternal no2
Jan-09-08  nehemiah: Wowwwwwwww That was an ultimate game :) Kasparov is so kewl ! that too , he gives the time to sack his bishop .. now I understood !
Jan-09-08  Riverbeast: Yes, this was a great game...Kasparov thoroughly outcalculated Anand, who is famous for his depth (and speed) of calculation himself! If this was a rapid game, that makes it even more impressive.

Two tactical geniuses, battling it out....very entertaining

  HAPERSAUD: Welcome to the dangerous world of the dragondorf transpose, nasty stuff if your caught unprepared. :)
Jan-27-12  engineerX: Najdorf -- Dragon hybrid between Anand and Kasparov promises to be an exciting tactical game ... and it really is!
Apr-09-12  screwdriver: Yes, it really looks like a hybrid of the Nadorf and the dragon. I like how nothing scares Kasparov.
Apr-10-12  Sacsacmate: <KKDEREK> nicely put.

It is awesome to see Black moves after 22. Qf2. Stupendous stuff.

Apr-10-12  screwdriver: <It is awesome to see Black moves after 22. Qf2.> Yes! I thought Kasparov lost his queen. But not without getting the bishop to fork Anand's queen and king. When all the fireworks cleared, Kasparov was standing with an extra knight on the board. I wish I could have a game like that!
Nov-13-13  mbvklc: Dragondorf?
