|Feb-18-04|| ||jaime gallegos: Great game! see D Ledger vs R Willmoth, 2002 to watch the similarities ... |
|Mar-13-05|| ||GMAstle: To me, it seems kinda odd the Kas. would play e3 on move 15 rather then take the pawn with the fork. Does anyone have any thoughts. |
|Mar-13-05|| ||coffee monster: <GMAstle> If you mean 15.Bxd5+?? then black plays 15...Qxd5 and white is losing having sacrificed a bishop for a pawn with no compensation. |

The heading to this game is all messed up. This is how it should look:

Thanks for the link.
|Jun-28-09|| ||Knight13: 39...Qd6 is a better fight. But Black is lost anyway.|

This provoked a storm of applause in the auditorium: it was a unique occurrence in matches for the world championship (and also a rarity in grandmaster play) for a sealed move to be made openly.>
|Dec-07-09|| ||HeMateMe: Great game. Interesting how, even at the highest level, the basic pin motif decides the game.|
|Mar-14-10|| ||Everett: If I'm not mistaken, black plays the early 4..Ne4 to avoid the pressure he was feeling from 4..0-0 5.Bg5, a Kasparov special.|
This game is actually very important in sporting terms, as Kasparov went up 2 games with only 4 to go, a near-insurmountable lead at the top levels.
|Dec-27-10|| ||knights: knight13 i agree. he should have taken the d pawn with the queen, not the rook, then he would have been at least TIED to white (pawnwise) this is the turning point of the gamr|
|Jan-22-12|| ||King.Arthur.Brazil: At 29.e4! Black is paralized!The Na5 has nolife! Maybe: fxe4 (ep) 30.fxe3 Nc4... Anyway: white has Rf1, e4, Nxc4 which give him verygood play.|

One spectator was ejected from the auditorium after yelling out "Resign!" to Karpov.
|Jun-29-16|| ||RookFile: I don't like the whole defense. It's basically ends up being a Dutch Defense where black exchanges off his valuable dark squared bishop. Kasparov's 4. Nf3 seemed to be well thought out in this match.|
|Aug-21-17|| ||Toribio3: Chess is full of surprises. Karpov did not expect Kasparov to play this kind of variation of Nimzo Indian.|

Botvinnik related regarding Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 that Bronstein moved 41... ♔e5 quickly so that Botvinnik would have to seal, but since it came after the arbiters had asked him to seal a move, this was ruled as an open sealed move.
