|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:

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?

|Mar-17-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This is game # 89 in the Soltis book, "The 100 Best."|
|Jun-11-14|| ||cplyakap: 37...Rc1!! is immortal.|
|Jul-02-15|| ||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.|
|Jul-03-15|| ||Bobby Spassky: My mistake. I was on an earlier comment page.|
|Jul-03-15|| ||Joshka: I think his Gambit was refuted shortly after this match.|
|Jul-03-15|| ||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.|
|Jul-04-15|| ||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.
|Aug-24-15|| ||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|
