|Jul-01-05|| ||notyetagm: <Gazza typically begins his attacks with a pawn sacrifice.> Here it is 17 ... d4!, opening lines (a8-h1 diagonal, e-file) to the White king stranded in the center.|
|Jul-01-05|| ||notyetagm: I really like the move 19 ... xf3!. Garry wants to play ... h4+ but that will be met by g2-g3, blocking the e1-h4 diagonal. <The point of 19 ... xf3! 20 gxf3 is to deflect the g-pawn from the g-file so that it can no longer block the critical e1-h4 diagonal.> Of course, White cannot play 20 xf3?? due to the discovered check 20 ... xd4+. So at the cost of his light-squared bishop Garry has completely demolished the enemy king's pawn shield . Garry sacs a piece on move 19 and White resigns before his 31st move.|

|Apr-26-09|| ||laskereshevsky: This game is part of a friendly/training match Between those players tooked part in Baku AT THE END OF THE 1977...|
The only other game from the match i ever saw is the below one....
Kasparov vs E Magerramov, 1977
The match's final result and the others game's moves, as i know, is still a matter of secret between the Protagonistes involved...(players, trainers etc.....)
|Aug-29-10|| ||Rob Morrison: Beautiful game, though it's not at all clear to me how black proceeds if white plays 18. Ne2 instead of 18. exd4. White will eat the d4 pawn with the N and keep the e-file closed. If black has something I sure don't see it.|

E Magerramov vs Kasparov, 1977.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF KASPAROV.
Your score: 33 (par = 33)

You're absolutely correct in that 18. Ne2 is the best for White. However, this does not solve his problems. Black wants this pawn sacced - and sacced it shall be! 18. Ne2 Qe7, the only reasonable move is to take the pawn. 19. Nxd4 Nxd4 20. Rxd4 Rad8! and White's hard-pressed. Taking on d8 is bad: 21. Rxd8 Rxd8 22. Qc2 Qb4+ 23. Qc3 Qg4. Relatively best is probably 21. a3 (preventing nasty checks in b4) Rfe8 22. h4 (gaining some space, preventing Qg5 possibilities) Be4! White is by no means lost here, but he is quite tied-down, and it unclear how to proceed, unless it it is by playing Be2 and giving back a pawn (on g2).
