Why is it called the Brisbane Bombshell?

  ajile: When I saw 8..d5 my immediate thought was Kasparov didn't want to play Black against the Maróczy Bind AND play it against one of the best positional players in history.
Nov-11-16  cunctatorg: Just one of Garry Kasparov's many positional masterpieces, certainly the most glorious and impressive!!

He did, but not often. His best results were with 1. d4 or 1. c4.

  beatgiant: Why Perth Poisoned Pawn? Why Geelong Gambit? Why Wagga Wagga Wreckage?

Can someone post a complete list of these?

Nov-11-16  CountryGirl: Sorry, why the 'Brisbane Bombshell' ?? Is the game somehow a good looking blonde female? or some reincarnation of late premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen?? wth?

As noted on earlier pages, the title is a reference to Tim Krabbé's chess short story "Master Jacobson"; you can read it at http://timkr.home.xs4all.nl/text/ja... if you're interested.

He tended to play largely 1.d4 thereafter, with some instances of 1.c4 and against high-class opposition, almost abandoned 1.e4.

Nov-11-16  CountryGirl: Thanks, Switching :)

  Zhbugnoimt: Unfortunately Kasparov's sac isn't sound.
12.Be3! Bxe3 13.Qa4+ Bd7 14.Qxb4 leaves White with an edge. But still, one of the greatest opening shots of all time. I bet Karpov mentally dumped his pants when he saw that.

But Bxe3 isn't forced is it? Black could play 12...Qc7 or Qe7 or Bd6 or even b6. Are all those moves bad?

May-06-17  Joker2048: Nearly hundred times I go through this game and I'm not tired of it... Just perfect play by Garry.
May-06-17  morfishine: Great game no matter how pathetic and irrelevant this dumb game title is...

Just wanted to reiterate that for all you dolts, dim-wits and imbeciles out there

Have a happy and comfy night
