|Nov-22-05|| ||wallnuts23: Hmm...nice game ere, worth havin a look at
|Jan-07-08|| ||component: No mercy.|
|Jan-07-08|| ||Jim Bartle: This was a rapid game. Kamsky tried to play as fast as Kasparov in the opening, and blundered with one of his pawn moves, maybe ...c5. Kasparov won the exchange and won easily.|
|Jan-07-08|| ||component: What a great game and only one kibitz before today? Perhaps chessgames.com is still in its infancy.|
|Jan-07-08|| ||apple pi: <chessgames.com> is about 6 years old I think, or maybe 7. There are so many games though...many brilliancies are still unexplored.|
|Mar-25-08|| ||sallom89: woah! great game by Garry.|
|May-21-10|| ||erasmus: There is a stronger continuation that Kasparov missed here. On move 19 he can win a piece with Rxd7!, since after Qxd7 20. Ne5 (followed by Nxc6) is stronger than what he played in the game. (I often make this "mistake" myself, where I just have to switch the move order to win even more material)|
|May-21-10|| ||Jim Bartle: I'm sure Kasparov saw that and decided to win the exchange in a different way.|
|Aug-11-10|| ||rangek: <Jim> winning a piece trumps winning the exchange though..|
|Feb-24-11|| ||HeMateMe: kasparov's a tactical monster. He is winning by move 19.|
|Feb-25-11|| ||sevenseaman: With a very high sense of positional visualisation; in tactical foresight Kasparov is streets ahead. A fairly high rated player Kamasky seems mere cannon fodder here.|

<The champion stayed in New York to play a two-game action chess "World Chess Challenge" match against a human opponent, the winner of a 16-player qualifying tournament.
And the winner, in what organizers aptly described as a total upset, was a 15-year-old boy: Gata Kamsky, seeded last in the tournament. The Soviet-born Kamsky, who has been touted as a potential future world champion, defected to the United States during the New York Open tournament in March.
So the stage was set for a dramatic confrontation in the match, played on Oct. 26 before nearly 200 people at the New York Public Library. The "World Chess Challenge," played at the rate of 25 minutes per player per game, was sponsored by Robert Maxwell, chairman and chief executive officer of Maxwell Communications Corporation and Macmillan Inc.>
Game 2: Kamsky vs Kasparov, 1989
|Apr-07-18|| ||MissScarlett: I knew about this match since reading Fred Waitzkin's <Mortal Games>, but didn't know - or had forgotten - that Kamsky had won a qualifying event. Anyone have the details?|
|Apr-07-18|| ||Olavi: The games Stein - Tal and Stein - Lengyel are so well known that Kasparov knew everything until he was winning, and he says as much in OMGP III.|
|Apr-07-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Miss S.
"The bright new American obtained the right for this informal challenge by a surprising finish ahead of a field of 16 leading United States players in a double-round knockout tournament held on the previous Monday and Tuesday at the Manhattan Chess Club."
