|Dec-02-11|| ||Crazychess1: This is another example of Kasparov's brilliant home prep. This really isn't about showing Karpov positional play so much as it is simply a fabulous trap. The famous Octopus Knight does leave a lasting impression. . .|
|Dec-04-11|| ||piltdown man: Ummm...this may be a stoopid question, but what does this game have to do with Brisbane, exactly?|
|Jan-22-12|| ||King.Arthur.Brazil: On my little chessboard life, I suppose that 13.Bf3(?) is a global strategy error, cause it gives white squared diagonal b1-g8 as Kasparov used through all the game. For this reason 13. Nc2 would force Nxc2,14. Qxc2 if Nxd5 then 15.Td1 etc. While Bf4 then 15. Nxb4 Bxb4
16. Bf3, followed by Qd4, Td1 and Bg5 (the order of moves depends on black moves, of course).|
|Feb-04-12|| ||Chessmaster9001: Later Karpov said he could get initiative by playing 13.Bg5.
More serious mistake was 17.Nab1? (17.d6!)
Last mistake was 24.Bg2? instead of best defense 24.Nb2 fighting for d3 square.
Despite of these mistakes beautiful game by Kasparov. That knight on d3 was a real monster!
|Feb-18-12|| ||miron: Piltdown read the story master jakobson on tim krabe site. It features this game. Good story|
|Mar-06-12|| ||pawnofdeath: what a game by kasparov!! a mate in 2 i believe if karpov had not resigned... one possibility is 41.Nf1 Rxf1 42.Bxf1 Qxf1# or 41.Bf1 Rxf1 42.Nxf1 Qxf1# is another possibility|
|May-01-12|| ||Tigranny: Why not 17.Be2 to get rid of that octopus knight?|
|Aug-07-12|| ||Cemoblanca: For my taste this 1 is THE REAL Immortal game by Kaspy & 16...Nd3!! is 1 of my favorite moves of all time. Simply Kaspycious!! ;0)|
|Aug-07-12|| ||I play the Fred: <Cemoblanca>, I think you might be right. But there are two reasons that people rate other Kasparov games above it:|
1) Kasparov is known as an attacker/tactician. There are a great number of positional masterpieces by Kasparov, but these don't square with Kasparov's popular image. Ulf Andersson's most famous game is surely not of the hack-and-slash variety.
2) Probably Kasparov's most famous game now is Kasparov-Topalov 1999 at Wijk aan Zee. This one was not only in "his" style, but it happened a lot more recently. I think most people have a recency bias.
|Aug-07-12|| ||perfidious: Here's an outstanding positional game by the 'pure attacker' Kasparov (Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1982).|
Nice effort for someone typecast as a tactician, and proof (as with his opponent in that game) that tactics and position play are interwoven into the making of any grandmaster.

|Aug-19-12|| ||Snehalshekatkar: Great Kasparov! Greater Kasparov!! Greatest Kasparov!!!|
|Aug-28-12|| ||Llawdogg: The Brisbane Bombshell really is a cool short story. And touching as well.|
|Oct-13-12|| ||ex0duz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6z4Z...
Kasparov himself annotates the game for 30 minutes! Just watching him gloat how Karpov has no moves and he can play moves like Kg7 and wait for Karpov to just self destruct is marvelous.
This is probably his favourite game(or equal with the one vs Topalov.. but to do it vs Karpov in a WC match must have been an AWESOME feeling). He talks about that knight on d3 like it was his wife, he wanted it there for life and Karpov himself would even give up his queen in the end for that beauty! True love prevails though!
|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?|
|Feb-14-13|| ||kingscrusher: Hi all
I have specifically covered the g5 move in this video for those interested:
|Mar-07-13|| ||Tigranny: <kingscrusher> Thanks for your videos on this game. Is this your favorite ever?|
|Mar-07-13|| ||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?|

This brilliant short story by Tim Krabbé:
|Nov-23-13|| ||znsprdx: < Shelter417: Mar-28-13 pg 10 This >brilliant< short story by Tim Krabbé:
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.|
|Mar-03-14|| ||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?
