May-03-04  aurelian: Haha, the Yermoinator ends his winning streak over Gazza...when the latter is just a slip of a lad. Very nice...
May-03-04  CapAnson: Yermo was quite young at this time too.
Mar-12-05  Orbitkind: Yermolinsky was certainly a tough opponent of Kasparov's at that time in his life.
Dec-10-05  aw1988: Why not 18. Ne4?
Dec-23-05  olydream3: spectular play by Ermolinsky
Feb-24-06  McCool: 49. ..Rf5+
Wierd R sacrafice on the F file for white. Alex Yermolinsky must have been giggling like a school girl.
Mar-14-06  branded: He was able to smash Kasparov's
face rather effectively there.
Apr-20-06  AlexandraThess: A nice example of centralizing strategy. Kasparov's rooks are wandering across the table without a clear plan.
Apr-20-06  Shajmaty: <Orbitkind: Yermolinsky was certainly a tough opponent of Kasparov's at that time in his life.> <branded: He was able to smash Kasparov's face rather effectively there.>
Remember Kasparov is 3 or 4 years younger than Yermolinsky: this is a game between a 17? and a 13? year old boys! <aw1988: Why not 18. Ne4?> 18. Ne4, 0-0 and Black is O.K.

  fm avari viraf: I am unable to fathom Garry's 43.Rxf7. Maybe he tried a swindle in time pressure. But it is a nice game.
Apr-21-07  essekids: move 43 seems better if the queen was on another aquare!
Jan-27-08  cruiseyleemorph: fm avari, rook take f7 is the best move for white in an impossible position, if he does anything else black has mate from d1 in 2 moves.
Apr-30-08  Zou Xiao Yang: Rd6!!!!!!!!!!LOL!
Oct-06-08  JG Burgess: At the time of 43.Rxf7, Garry's position is abysmal. Black threatens to bring his queen to d1 on his next move, so white must sacrifice something to keep his king alive. Strangely, 43.Rxf7 IS white's best move :)
Dec-05-13  MrJafari: very attractive game for me! Kasparov sacrificed a rook and it's uncertain yet for me why Black sacrificed his rook too?!
Sep-02-16  lamsang: 43castleF7 was not a good move, it lost a castle without gaining anything.

Kasparov on Kasparov: Part I
