  OhioChessFan: There's only about 650,000 games without kibitzing, so I understand how difficult it must have been to find one. In the meantime, Kaspy seemed eager to draw, and Black had no problems accomodating him.

  poulh: With two passed pawns, Black definitely had the advantage. Even when he was but 13, Kasparov intimidated opponents.

38...Ke7 39. Qh7 and it looks to me like Black has to allow a repetition if he wants to keep the g-pawn. Other 38th moves by Black allow an immediate perpetual check. So I don't see how Black would play for a win here.
