|Apr-10-11|| ||Jim Bartle: They'd played this game through move 13 in Game 6. Kasparov had found 14. Bc2 in analysis afterward, and actually blamed his game 9 loss (the first decisive game, after David Letterman had made fun of the match for being so dull) on thinking too much about the variation he played here in game 10.|
|Apr-10-11|| ||agb2002: Not a puzzle but chess culture. This famous game has been analyzed a number of times, for example|
or in Igor Stohl's "Garry Kasparov's Greatest Chess Games".
|Apr-10-11|| ||VincentL: "Insane"
This game is somehow familiar. It is from the 1995 PCA World Championship Match, and Kasparov sacrifices the rook on a1. The first moves are 17. Qg4 Qxa1 18. Bxe6. The rest I cannot remember, but Kasparov won.
In this match he was behind but started to play very aggressively, drawing level and then pulling ahead.
He was not able to repeat the same against Kramnik´s Berlin defence in 2000.
|Apr-10-11|| ||sevenseaman: If it was a home preparation win for GK then Anand fell into the trap?|
One always knows after a few moves that one's opponent is playing a prepared line. I guess the knowledge it is so must make it that much harder to find a defense OTB.
In a match, the selection of a trainer and brilliant seconds must assumes pivotal importance. There are so few at the very top.
If say Aronian is the challenger Anand might look to earmark Carlsen as one of his seconds and the other way around if challenger changes.
|Apr-10-11|| ||doubledrooks: <Once>: Great writing and perceptive analysis.|

|Apr-10-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: 17.Qg4!!
The idea is BxP/e6! next ... and the BK is in serious trouble.
I recognized this almost instantly ... I have been working on my analysis of this game for many years ... maybe one day I will actually finish and make a web page out of it.
Here is what I wrote about this move.
<17.Qg4!! (Maybe - '!!!') (WOW!!!!)>
<<To the eyes of a jaded master - who is already familiar with the theory of this line - this might seem rather routine. But my friends and student's eyes always get big and their jaws always drop when they first see this move.
A very low-rated player always has great difficulty in grasping the ideas behind this move ... to them, it just looks like White has dropped a Rook.
<<'!!' - NM Iakov Damsky>
(Kasparov himself - as well as several other annotators - give this move a double-exclam here.)>>>
I once played this line in a game of 15-minute chess. I could not remember the analysis ... and chose the safer 17.Rb1 instead. (I won.)
|Apr-10-11|| ||WhiteRook48: i failed this puzzle. horribly|
|Apr-10-11|| ||nariga: What if Anand had played
19... Nf3+ ??
20... Qxe5 ??
|Apr-10-11|| ||nariga: well that was suicide- mate follows with 19. Qxf3|
|Apr-10-11|| ||stst: Both the N and P@e6 are attacking targets.
Was thinking 17.Be3 or 17.Qg4.
From an attacking point of view, Qg4 makes more sense, even though the aR is sac...
It'd a long battle either way...
Busy watching some other tournaments, and ready for bed after another long and tiring working Sunday!!
|Apr-11-11|| ||M.Hassan: "Insane" White to play 17.?
White is a pawn behind and has a Bishop for a Knight.
Three lines may emerge:
White falls ahead
Time to check
|Apr-11-11|| ||patzer2: Black's last best chance to improve appears to be 12...Nc6 = instead of 12...Qb6 13. h5! . |
Fritz thinks Black might survive with 18...Qh2 but it looks ugly for Black after 18...Qh2 19. 0-0-0 0-0 20. g4 .
|Apr-11-11|| ||patzer2: Oops! that last post was meant for the Monday puzzle game Aronian vs C Seel, 2002.|
|Jun-18-11|| ||checkmateyourmove: ive seen two people put 22. Ng3+ but crafty puts 22.Nf4|
|Aug-07-11|| ||positionalgenius: How has this not been game of the day?|
|Sep-25-11|| ||Rubberbandman: This is the first game iv ever seen where white can actually play 19.Bh6 followed by 20.Bxg7 followed by 21.Bxg8 with the pieces white's attacking all being defended at the same time!! But this is Kasparov,and this is yet another Masterpiece between two of the finest players ever|
|Oct-05-11|| ||mohammedgm: What if Anand played 11 ...Qxg5|
|Dec-14-11|| ||teddyo: 12.Qf3 regains the material with an extra positional plus, so the theory goes...|
|Jan-10-12|| ||kasparvez: Somebody please provide a clever pun and make it a game of the day.|
|Jan-14-12|| ||myusernameis: 11 Ng5 !! by Karpov was a home made cookie discovered by him during his WCH match with Korchnoi; Korchnoi said something like "you find move like that once in century"; |
Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978
11 Qg4 !! by Kasparov was a home made cookie discovered by him during his WCH match with Anand; I dont know what Anand himself said about the move after the game
if you want a pun I suggest, considering double home preparation here, "Big cook, little cook"
|Jan-23-12|| ||Caissanist: Anand on this game at whychess.org:
<And is it true that after playing a super-novelty in the 10th game Garry began to deliberately slam the door?
- Yes, of course.
And it was done on purpose?
- Yes, I think so. That was also a mistake of mine, that I didn’t simply go up to the arbiter and say, “Could you make him stop doing it?”, or something like that.
How often did he do it?
- Maybe 3 or 4 times. What I mean is that he’d come up to the board, make a move, walk away and slam the door behind him. I’m pretty sure he did it consciously – he really wanted to take revenge for the previous day. […] But I acted like a naive schoolboy. I definitely should have lodged a protest with the arbiter. Karpov would have done it without thinking, and we all know he’s a tough customer.>
|Jun-07-12|| ||Andrijadj: Make this GoTD with the pun "Karsparov" :)|
|Oct-17-12|| ||ZeejDonnelly: How about "Home Improvement"?|
|Feb-28-13|| ||SirChrislov: Daylight come and viswana go home...|
