|Aug-04-06|| ||Richard Taylor: They were both in time trouble but Karpov may have had winning chances with 37 ... Rf2 despite some checks by Kasparov.|
|Aug-04-06|| ||Richard Taylor: In the match with Anand the game deiviated with 9...g5! Then in the next Scotch Kasparov came up with another move...|
|Mar-25-07|| ||Richard Taylor: I got that (slightly) wrong the game where Anand played 9 ... g5 was a draw and then there were no more Scotch openings in the Kasparov - Anand match.|
|Jun-12-08|| ||ToTheDeath: "One of the best games which we played during this match." - Karpov.|
Kasparov was critical 14.Qd2 and the ensuing complications- 14.Re1, winning back the pawn and playing for an endgame advantage was the corrrect strategy he said afterwards.
21...Ne4 22.f3? Nxg3! was a cute trap which Kasparov probably saw in a millisecond.
Karpov praised 32.Qf1 as an excellent defensive move in time pressure. The subsequent return of the exchange by Black ensured the draw.
|Apr-05-09|| ||Peligroso Patzer: This was the game in which Kasparov revived the Scotch opening, which had long been regarded as offering no real prospects for a meaningful White advantage. Although this hard-fought game ended in a draw, Kasparov collected a full point with the Scotch (after 102 moves!) in the next game of this match in which he played White: Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990 .|
Alekhine was among those who long since had written off the Scotch. In commenting upon White’s “singular” 6th move (6. Nd2) in this game: Tartakower vs Ed Lasker, 1924 , he sardonically wrote the following: “Predicated upon a few positional traps, it is not likely that it will open a new horizon for the sober and colorless Scotch opening.” (“New York 1924”, by Alekhine, Alexander, Russell Enterprises, Inc. © 2008, at page 128.) Although Alekhine seems to have been correct regarding 6. Nd2, his wholesale dismissal of the Scotch was less-well justified.
|Jul-01-09|| ||Knight13: <21...Ne4 22.f3? Nxg3! was a cute trap which Kasparov probably saw in a millisecond.> That move wasn't meant as a trap. It was simply the best move to go about Black's plan. And Karpov didn't mean it for Kasparov to fall in to it.|
|Jul-19-11|| ||Ghuzultyy: Great game, very fun to analyse.|
|Mar-25-15|| ||offramp: It's a pity Karpov didn't try out the famous 4...Qh4 variation. Kasparov would have known that Karpov wouldn't try it. It is not in Karpov's style at all - so perhaps he <should> have tried it?|
