  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  ZackyMuhammad: 16...♘ d3!!
May-06-17  Joker2048: Nearly hundred times I go through this game and I'm not tired of it... Just perfect play by Garry.

  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

Jun-13-17  Saniyat24: If it's named after Kasparov, where is the other r?
Jun-13-17  beatgiant: <Saniyat24>
You're right, it should have been called <Canberra Calamity>

Jun-13-17  beatgiant: <tamar>
We were looking for double r's, not quadruple l's.

Your suggestion would be good for a game by Guillermo Llanos

Jul-02-17  ZackyMuhammad: What after 34. Bxe4? or ♖xe4?. Please, tell me.

  HeMateMe: in most of the capture/recaptures on e4 black wins with a Knight fork on f2 that results in winning the exchange or is up a piece after a Rook check on e1 picks off the Knight on b1.
Jul-24-17  bla bla: why not 35.kg1?
Jul-24-17  Howard: In response to that inquiry...take a look at White's queen, on d3 !

  thegoodanarchist: I would love to see the time on the players' clocks after moves 16 and 17.
Aug-27-17  Olavi: According to Kasparov, they had analyzed it up to 21...g5. Badly, of course, for they missed 12.Be3. Or is it still playable??!

  keypusher: Olavi -- Stockfish doesn't seem to think it's so bad for Black after Be3. Doesn't seem appetizing for Black though.
Oct-19-17  Damenlaeuferbauer: In my opinion the best game of the decade 1980 - 1989 and Kasparov's real "supreme creative achievement" (despite Kasparov - Topalov, Wijk aan Zee 1999 and others)!
Nov-17-17  amateur05: There is a very nice draft version of this: Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
