|Dec-23-01|| ||Sneaky: The tactical point of 16 ...g5, I have read, is that if 17 fxg5 Black need not defend his Knight on f6, since 17 ...Bxg3 (threatening Rh2) is winning!|
|Apr-13-03|| ||chessamateur: This game was played during a Simultaneous Exhibition by the GM. Kasparov was only 12 years old at the time and he was only person the GM lost to! |
|Feb-15-04|| ||Hidden Skillz: its nice how kasparov went after the king side..openin the whole side wide open |

|Apr-18-04|| ||Blumster: Ok, I've got a question for all of you out there:
Why do GMs EVER play out lost games such as this one. Granted this was a simul game, still, why not just resign and save that time for other opponents?
As a chess fan whose never visited a big match, I'm sure someone here can help me.
|Apr-18-04|| ||Lawrence: <Blumster>, Romanishin probably thought that this little 12 year old brat was finally going to make a mistake. |
|Apr-18-04|| ||WMD: <<Why do GMs EVER play out lost games such as this one.>> In a word, inertia.|
<<Kasparov was only 12 years old at the time and he was only person the GM lost to!>> According to the book Fighting Chess, Romanishin was playing against 16 Soviet juniors. He lost two games, not one. The simul took place in Baku, not Leningrad.
|Apr-18-04|| ||WMD: A final point. The game score in my book says Romanishin resigned after 29...Rg5+. |

|Nov-24-04|| ||Whitehat1963: A 12-year-old Kasparov checkmates a GM who is giving a simul in a game that features the opening of the day. Love the way GK walks the opponent's king all the way across the board as though he were walking a dog. |
|Oct-29-05|| ||Inf: where do you get these books that tells you about the scores and all?|
|Dec-01-05|| ||Chopin: Kasparov just smoked this GM. I've never really been fond of the Bird's opening.|
|Oct-02-06|| ||Tenderfoot: haha, Wow, what am embarrassment...it's one thing to lose a game in a simul, but I'm sure it's quite another to get dominated by a 12 year old in one. Of course, if that 12 year old is Garry Kasparov...|
|Dec-22-06|| ||Tacticstudent: my god, kasparov got some decisive tactical shots( like 13 - ... h4! and 22 - ... Qd7! ) that the poor man couldn't pay enough attention to them, since he was playing with 16 players. Both white rooks and the bishop on b2 just saw their king being taken by the powerful Kasparov's rooks pair... excellent tactic by kasparov, that's exactly what i'm looking for in this site
In fact, I think that Bird opening isn't effective because black defends itself by trading white's king knight and can put on an attack on the kingside, since white's king is weakened because of the f-pawn advance.|
|May-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Stupid!|
|Dec-14-10|| ||Phony Benoni: Why didn't Romanishin resign? Obviously, it was a case of Dead Man Walking.|
