Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-10-05  Nezhmetdinov: This is a masterly game from GK - the swapping of the knight to the queenside - after that he utterly outplays Anand
Dec-06-05  KingG: Another great Najdorf game by Kasparov.
Jun-01-06  spirit: what happens after 21.Qxe6...complete outplaying

  acirce: No, it was a rapid game in the Geneva PCA GP. They used the KO format with mini-matches. This was the final. Kasparov won this game but Anand won overall (2.5-1.5). Kasparov should have won Anand vs Kasparov, 1996 though but blundered, his hilarious reaction when he realized this can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZqc...
Jan-07-09  WhiteRook48: I've made some analysis and it appears that the white king will be stuck on h1 and cannot move because then the pawn queens. White envisions Ng2-e3-f1.
