Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-23-08  sallom89: i don't get it >.<

someone enlighten me please.

Mar-23-08  Granite: Well, consider the following elements of the position after 30. Qg4, the rook on d6 now threatens to go to d7 which is very powerful or take the pawn on h6. The black knight on h5 has very limited mobility and rook on c8 is defending the c4 pawn from a dangerous attack by the white bishop. More so the black queen is defending the g7 pawn, the c4 pawn and the knight on h5. Just noticing those features is enough to start calculating, and I think Kamsky likely saw a powerful combination coming and resigned.
Mar-23-08  newton296: well after Qg4 white threatens Rd7! forking blacks Q and B. not to mention all the mate threats here .

blacks best is still gonna drop a B and pawn .

I think kamsky saw it coming and decided to save himself the agony and just resigned.

  Fusilli: Black actually has no defense against the threat of 31.Rd7. If 30...Rd8 31.Rxd8 followed by 32.Bxc4. If 30...Nf6 white simply takes that N. If 30...Rc7 31.Rxh6 threatens the N in h5 and the R in c7. If 30...Qf5 31.Bxc4+ and black has to give up the exchange (if 31...Kh8 32.Rxh6+ and if 31...Kh7 32.Bd3).
Feb-11-09  DoubleCheck: Well the main line of the classical defence in QGD is up to 8. Nc3

Kamsky plays the novelty 8. ...Qc7 and then castles 14. ...0-0 with open bishops for Kasparov

Whereas in the Kasparov vs H Spangenberg, 1997 Kasparov is playing in a more closed position since Spangenberg plays 8. ...Be7 immediately with 9. ...0-0 maintaining a solid position.
