May-20-03  Rookpawn: This is Kasparov's quickest defeat against a human in a standard tournament game. (He lost in shorter games against a computer: Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 and in a "thematic" game: Short vs Kasparov, 1993

  wordfunph: from the book Garry Kasparov on Garry Kasparov Part 1..

"After the game with Velibekov I returned home feeling crushed, lay on the divan with my face to the wall, and burst into inconsolable sobbing."

Considering this, aside from being exceptionally talented, it is no wonder Kasparov grew to become such a great master.

Sep-07-12  invant: yeah maybe try 22 ng4 threatening mate instead!!
Aug-22-14  MrJafari: White played well,but I think the first factor was Kasparov's mistakes...
