Jan-26-13  nopassion4jazz: Times and times again I've watched this game, and I'm still amazed how kaspy stretched the time by rushing the marcozy bind... The conservant's formula has to be the toughest ways to make an opening considering that the opponents wouldn't have much options for his move, am I right?

  RookFile: One of the best games ever in world championship play. It was thrilling to watch this on the PBS channel as Shelby Lyman and friends covered it.
Mar-07-13  HeMateMe: How does the pun "Brisbane Bombshell" link to this game?

a pity there is (are) no game score(s)or FEN position (s) or am I too much of a patzer?

Dec-11-13  tzar: This excellent game only confirms that the edge between the two K' in their WC matches came from Kasparov's better home preparation. I don't intend to diminish the quality of this great game, and for sure home preparation is a big asset in a player strength. According to Kasparov himself this game was due to one of the most extensive preparations of his career, lasting for months.

In his own words, he had the full concept of the game in his head. Meanwhile poor little Karpov had to respond over the board.

On the other hand, when Karpov won games in these WC due to home preparation (few), Kasparov immediately diminish the importance of those victories by saying it was just a home preparation (in others he even said that Karpov had stolen his preparation -lets remember the Vladimirov episode in 86-).

Jan-26-14  PJs Studio: Kasparov - the most dangerous player ever. My favorite game of his.
Mar-03-14  chrisfalter: @HeHateMe - The gambit 8...d5!? was first played in Brisbane. See http://answers.yahoo.com/question/i... for details.

  offramp: I consider this game dans sa totalité as dross.
But 8....d5! is superb. I have seen that supposed Be3 refutation and I'm not certain. Who wouldn't like to play it on ICC?

  Bobby Spassky: One of the greatest games and nobody has commented on it in ten years! Seirawan has a video of this game on youtube.
Jul-02-15  ughaibu: Fifteen minus fourteen is usually held to equal one.

  perfidious: <Joshka> Do not believe Karpov vs Van der Wiel, 1986 is still considered an outright refutation, but it marked the end of 8....d5 in top-level play, at any rate.

  Joshka: <perfidious> Yes it seems like Karpov had the upper hand, but could not take the full point somehow.......doesn't seem to be played anymore at the top level like you say.....so many games one plays over where one player is a pawn up, but still nothing doing, sometimes it's not enough to win...maybe some computer input is needed!;-)
Aug-24-15  SpiritedReposte: For me this game is up there with the greatest games ever.

In that youtube video linked by <ex0duz> Kasparov notes that <23. ...Nd7> prevents Whites natural move <24. Nb2> because of <24. ...Qf6! 25. Nxd3 Bxd3 26. Qxd3 Ne5!> and the queen is trapped in the middle of the board!

Very nice sideline in this amazing game.

  RookFile: Kasparov learned from Alekhine, and certainly Alekhine would have been proud to have played such a splendid and deep game.
Jan-11-16  Aaron Wang: I thought Karpov was his teacher
Apr-08-16  The Kings Domain: One fact I've noticed in playing and analyzing the Kasparov-Karpov matches is how deep and complex they are. Nothing fancy or brilliant in the games but appealing in their maturity and complexity. One gets the impression studying the games that one is in the presence of two adults in their prime at their best. The K-K bouts make Fischer's and Tal's more memorable games seem like impulsive bursts of talented adolescents. The Kasparov-Karpov championship matches were one of a kind. It was the last great era of the game.
Apr-08-16  not not: you could not give Capa a pawn on move eight and then try to outplay him in a lively tactical middle-game

Alechine tried it few times and learnt it hard way - all you simply get each time is an ending pawn down against chess machine

I just cannot somehow imagine Capa losing to "Gary Gambit"; he did not lose to Marschall Gambit which is sound (accoring to computer's evaluation); i wonder what does computer says abut this gambit?
