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

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

Aug-22-14  MrJafari: White played well,but I think the first factor was Kasparov's mistakes...
