Kibitzer's Corner
May-31-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Kasparov was very efficient even in those young years. I like toying with white's queen who is allowed to take black's pieces at will until it suddenly realizes it's trapped herself.
Sep-07-05  alexandrovm: Very nice attack, did Garry blundered somewhere or did he really made that beautiful counter attack with no errors.
Sep-08-05  RookFile: I guess Kasparov could have played 20.... Bh6, but his 20..... Bc5 does win without any problems. Nice game by Kasparov.
Sep-08-05  alexandrovm: He seems to provoke his adversary allowing him to play agressive moves...and suddenly he is in big trouble, nice one.
Sep-08-05  RookFile: Hindsight tells us that Domatov's plan involving an early Qd6 doesn't work. It sure looked logical when he played it, but Kasparov had an effective answer. With the benefit of hindsight, preserving the tension and playing 8. 0-0 looks better.
Sep-08-05  Shams: wow, what an impressive miniature from Garry. The five-move sequence starting with 12.Nxc2 is brilliant-- Garry saw b4 of course but Dolmatov must have missed 14...Bf8. For the exchange black has every single piece on an attacking square. I bet even Karpov got squirrely when he saw this.

Where we stop nobody KNOWS!

...gonna have a ball tonite!

Young Gazz creates true artistry
on the Chessboard.

17...0-0-0! is great, preventing

If 17 Qd4, then 17...Nc2! would
have been crisp.

I've blown the whole day on Gazz,
trying to pin down where the jump
took place. The general guess was
that it must have been sometime in
'78 (the big Bugujno result was '79).
Putting aside the suspicious early
jump against Donchev, I think I'm
getting close.

TIA Stephen

  GrahamClayton: Dolmatov is forced to accept the exchange sacrifice offered by Kasparov with 15...♘g4, as any sensible Queen moves just loses the bishop on c5.
Feb-20-16  The17thPawn: What is blacks response to 15. Bxb4? Looks like queen exchange and then b6 from black but I don't see any huge advantage. After Bxb6 black remains a pawn up but that beats the game continuation.
Oct-11-18  MrJafari: An aggressive and attractive game. I wonder why Kasparov delayed Rh8 one move behind!
