|Jun-02-04|| ||Abdooss: 15...Bxf6 is the blunder. Better is 15...Nxf6. |
|Jan-04-06|| ||trolls: Gazz just never had anything going
in this game. It's one of Chess'
anomolies, man. Gulko just seemed to
be able to make Garry look like a bum,
whereas others couldn't.
|Jul-24-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 53...Re1 is the blunder|
|Aug-18-10|| ||tentsewang: You win the match because you're not scared of exchanging queens and that's what Gulko does like Bobby Fischer !!|
|Jan-12-11|| ||sevenseaman: Gulko won because he knew how to, and wasn't afraid of doing it.|
|Nov-12-12|| ||Eric Farley: Kasparov was Gulko's favorite punching bag.|
|Nov-12-12|| ||SChesshevsky: Maybe Kasparov was playing too much for a win.
It looks something like 30...Qc7 then exchanging the two rooks for White's Q & P might give Black decent drawing chances.
|Nov-09-13|| ||Swedish Logician: The black variation, with 8. _ b5 was introduced by Timman in his game with Spassky, IBM 1973, but Spassy refused the pawn sac. The seond sacrifice 10. _ e4 Timman gave already in his comments to the game Timman-Balashov, Sochi 1973, published in Learn from the Grandmasters (ed. Keene), Batsford 1975, and at Reykavik 1988 he was beaten playing the white side against Kasparov who then opted for 12. – Qa5. A year later, against Gulko, Kasparov instead tries 12. – Qb6 and goes down .. |
Wy did he change the move from his win against Timman?
Since then the variation seems to have been left alone.
|Dec-14-13|| ||SpaceRunner: The game is annotated in the book written by Boris Gulko and Joel Sneed :
Think Like a Grandmaster..
A very fine Chessboook indeed...
And yes Gulko agrees : 15...Bxf6 is the blunder. Better is 15...Nxf6.
|Dec-21-14|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: 3 to 1, with 3 draws,for Gulko|
|Dec-21-14|| ||perfidious: <Eduardo> Which, in the eyes of some kibitzers, detracts from Kasparov's legacy.|
|Feb-09-15|| ||RookFile: 15...Bxf6 is surprising because you would think black would want to keep that powerful dark squared bishop in one of the more open positions of the KID. I doubt that Gulko took more than a minute to decide to play 16. Bxf6.|
|Jul-29-16|| ||mckmac: "...because Garry didn't solve the problem either. It was a very complicated game with several turning points. First, my choice on move 9 gave Black interesting dynamic opportunities. If I were to play this game again, I would choose the positional 9.a3. The next crucial moment, which you highlighted, was deciding which piece to recapture on move 15. Among different considerations, the most important was the relative value of the pieces. By exchanging his dark-squared bishop, Black's position lost dynamic momentum. Realizing his advantage, White used two important rules: 1) not to rush, and 2) not to miss active opportunities."|
