|Jul-05-06|| ||MrMelad: Ouch! Briliant chess. Kasparov at his best!|
|Jul-06-06|| ||woodenbishop: Awesome chess! Garry kicks ass.|
|Oct-29-06|| ||positionalbrilliancy: wow, my mouth literally dropped open at the end of this game.|
|Feb-06-07|| ||ianD: Chessgames:
Surely that should be Nxf6#
|Feb-06-07|| ||keypusher: <ianD> Black can play 37...Qxf6.|
|Feb-07-07|| ||ianD: User: keypusher|
Well spotted I must have been in stupid mode!!
I should stick to pre-midnight kibitzing.
|Feb-08-07|| ||keypusher: <ianD> Don't apologize, we've all done worse (and in our own games, too!). Unfortunately, your oversight is not bad enough to show world champion potential.|

|Mar-12-07|| ||EL BE: What's wrong with 34.Rxf6+?|
|Mar-13-07|| ||nescio: <EL BE: What's wrong with 34.Rxf6+?> I don't suppose there is anything wrong with it if you are able to calculate all the possibilities after 34.Rxf6+ Bxf6 35.Nxf6 Rc1+ 36.Kf2 Rf1+ 37.Kg3 Rxf6. Kasparov certainly had the ability, but he may have been in time trouble. Anyway, as Black was powerless, 34.h3 was a practical decision by White to avoid a possible onslaught on his own king.|
|Mar-13-07|| ||EL BE: After 37...Rxf6: 38.Qxh8+,Ke7; 39.exf6+, Kd7; 40.Qxd8, Kxd8; 41.f7+ and black would have to resign at that point.|

|Jun-17-07|| ||Open Defence: <very often when we count the pieces attacking the King we ignore the pawns - G Kasparov> wow! that never occured to me until i watched that video... sounds simple.. but.. wow!|
|Jul-13-07|| ||gauer: Premature was 34 Nxf6 due to 34 ... Rc1+ 35 Kf2 Rf1+ 36 Kg3 Rxf3+ 37 gxf3 Bxf6 38 exf6 Qe1+ 39 Kh3 Bc8+ 40 Kg2 Qd2+, & only drawn. With 34 h3, guarding the King, white retains all threats.|
|Jun-08-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Classic kitchen sink attack, one of Garry's best.|
|Apr-05-09|| ||Endrainbow: Can someone please explain to me why on 13, Black doesn't cxd4? Thanks|
|Apr-05-09|| ||tpstar: <Endrainbow> Welcome to the site. =)|
If 13 ... cxd4 White would probably play 14. Bg5:

Now if 14 ... Qe8 or 14 ... Qc7 White has 15. cxd4 with full control of the center, or 14 ... Qd7!? 15. Nf6+ Bxf6 16. Bxf6 and Black's King will get killed on the weak dark squares.
Go back one page using the <Earlier Kibitzing> prompt to find a post by <sucaba> on 12-16-05 which discusses 13 ... cxd4.
|Feb-13-10|| ||remolino: This is crazy. I think the scariest move to face was 34.h3. That is like saying "I am now preparing the final sword for the final blow". I'd be shocked. |
I played in a simul against Kasparov in Mexico City. He had a won position on the kingside, but he first took 5 moves to seal the queenside before he proceeded with the attack. All I could do was watch the preparations like another spectator.
|Mar-19-10|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: <remolino>, Kasparov's precautions appear to be a sign of respect. He didn't proceed willy-nilly with his attack, but played a bit of defense first. Sounds like he took you seriously.|
If that's any consolation.
|Mar-19-10|| ||Badmojo: Any player in the history of chess use his knights better than Kasparov?|
|Mar-19-10|| ||TheMacMan: kasparovs games are so stale and boring!|
|Mar-19-10|| ||abcpokerboy: <Badmojo>, if you like Kasparov's use of knights, observe the last moves of this game against Leko. I wonder if one piece (other than a queen) has moved so many times consecutively to force the resignation of an opponent.|
Kasparov vs Leko, 2001
|Mar-19-10|| ||Garech: Great game and great choice for GOTD, very instructive stuff.|
|Mar-19-10|| ||drpoundsign: good pun but kinda gross. Richard Ramirez likes AC/DC not chess|
|Mar-19-10|| ||drpoundsign: I studied with Lev Alburt but he is expensive and emphasizes endgames whic I don't survive to play|
|Mar-19-10|| ||patzer2: Kasparov could have won positionally with 23. Bb3 . However, he chose instead to spring a deep and wonderfully coordinated attack on the weakened castled position with 23. Bxg5!!|
This finishing attack is a beauty!
