  nasmichael: 090604--Having seen this game for the first time, inspired by an article for FernSchach Intl, I am astounded by the hit-hard style of Kasparov. Kamsky has returned to the chess scene, and this fight here by him will be good for me to compare with his current games. Admittedly I played quickly through it the few times I have looked over this game, and I am now encouraged to take my board out and play through it in more detail. Thanks to the contributors for putting this game in the database.

Sep-06-04  alexandrovm: Kasparov gradually converts his advantage over Kamsky, a real nice game by Garry. I'll check this game later with Fritz
Jan-22-05  ArmyBuddy: Bye bye to black's rook when 35 ...pxp. 36. Qe7+ Kg8 37. QxR+
Jan-13-06  subedai: Interesting the way Kasparov favours creating activity over getting his pieces out for the sake of it.

  whiteshark: <11. Bf2!> Moving this piece twice archieves the goal of driving away Black's queen; this takes priority over development.
Jul-22-09  pericles of athens: can anyone explain 10. a3 for me? I don't get it.
Jul-22-09  Mazettakos: The idea behind the move 10.a3 is to control the b4 square, so after 10..Qxb2? 11.Na4 , black queen is trapped
Jul-22-09  Ghausc1: It looks like 19..g5 would allow black to trade off rooks and trade the b2 pawn for the h5 pawn. Is this possible?
Dec-02-10  goldenbear: Why not 12.Nxg4 exactly?

  Sastre: If 12...Nexg4, then <13.Rxg4 Nxg4 14.Qxg4 e5 15.Nf5 g6 16.Nd5 Qc6 17.Nf6+ Kd8 18.Qh4>. If 18...gxf5,then 19.Bb6+ Qxb6 20.Nd5+.
Dec-04-10  goldenbear: <Sastre> Thanks.
