Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-04  alexandrovm: this game was played very agresivly by young garry Kasparov
Dec-11-04  alexandrovm: It is showed here in the explorer as a QUEEN sac :)
Dec-11-04  azaris: I suppose it counts as a "sham sacrifice", to use Spielmann's terminology.
Dec-11-04  alexandrovm: yes, you are right <azaris>
Dec-19-04  quXa: Well, a lot of the sacs are sham sacs in the sac explorer. Still it remains a sac ;).
Aug-04-05  Dres1: A Shack even
Oct-20-05  svbabu: Move 18. white had a chance to push its g pawn (g5).
Dec-22-05  harcee sarmiento: 7... Nh5! adopting fischers idea!
Feb-25-08  musiquismo: what was fischer idea?
Oct-20-10  shakespeare: is there any reason for 21. exf5???
after gxf5 black gets a phantastic game with a nice open g file to attack the black king but the loosing move was surely 25.Rd5 with the exchange sac - no hope left after this move - a silent consolidating 25. b3 - conquering with the next steps e5 and white has good chances to win this game

  wordfunph: game sidelight..

during the game, Pavlenko smoked continuously one cigarette after another. Kasparov in turn chew his gum to show disrespect to his opponent.

Jan-12-12  BlackSheep: Of course Kasparov deserves praise for this but Pavlenko was technically winning this right up until the ridiculous looking 25. Rd5 thats all he had to do was shore up his king safety with b3 and even being a piece down (albeit for 3 pawns)black has nothing . Take a look at the position at move 25 its nearly impossible to begin to justify Rd5 when Nb6 obviously gains tempo but then to back it up with an exch.sac on d5 has to be the dumbest plan anyone could come up with in the position . Heres a quick computer line after 25.b3 , Ra8 , Qe4 , a5 , a4 , Rfb8 , Kc2 , Ra6 , g5 (whites asset is now about to get going) Rbb6 , Rh2 , Bf8 , Rhd2 and now black has no good moves and is about to be squashed off the board after whites armada of pawns rain down on the king , the funny thing about this position is attempts to repel the armada results in the d-pawn queeening and attempts to stop the d-pawn result in the creation of a passed a-pawn that will queen , its like using your fingers to plug holes in a barrel .
Mar-06-14  MrJafari: adventurous game! but like <BlackSheep>,I believe Pavlenko made some mistakes...
May-14-15  hadi706: یک بازی فوق العاده از کاسپارف 12 ساله در مقابل پاولنکو 33 ساله که بدون هیچ ترسی از حرکت نهم پیاده قربان میده و جلوی شاهش رو باز میکنه اما در ادامه نشون میده که هیچ ضعفی در جناه شاه نداره و عاقبت حریف رو مجبور به قبول شکست میکنه
