Kibitzer's Corner

Jul-16-15  fporretto: It's so easy to overlook all the possibilities available to White's subtly mobile Queen...but Kasparov never does.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Black's decisive error was attempting to trap White's Rook with <22...Bb5??>, allowing <23. Bxg6! > (+4.62 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 14) which solves today's Thursday puzzle.

Instead of <22...Bb5??> Black must play 22...Red8 which, though it favors White after 23. Ba2! to (not 22...Red8 23. Bxg6?? gxh6 24. Qe4 Be8! ), is the only move to survive and fight on with practical OTB drawing chances.

Playing 22...Red8 out over the computer with Fritz, one possibility is 22... Red8 23. Ba2 (not 23. Bxg6?? hxg6 24. Qe4 Be8 ) 23... Bb5 24. Qe4 Ng7 25. Nxg6 Bf6 26. Rfd1 Be8 27. Nf4 Bf7 28. Bxg7 Bxg7 29. Bxe6 Rxd1+ 30. Rxd1 Bxe6 31. Nxe6 Re8 32. Re1 Bxb2 33. Qg4+ Kh8 34. Qf5 Qc6 35. Re3 Qd7 36. Nd4 Qd8 37. Rh3 Qe7 38. Ne6 Qd7 39. Rh6 b5 40. g3 a6 41. Kg2 Ba1 42. Qf3 Bg7 43. Nxg7 Kxg7 44. Rxa6 Rf8 45. Qc3+ Kg8 46. Qb3+ Qf7 47. Qxf7+ Rxf7 48. f4 Kg7 49. Kh3 (-2.13 @ 31 depth, Deep Fritz 14) with a likely win for White who possesses an extra pawn in a Rook and pawn endgame.

P.S.: Earlier in the opening, Black might try to improve with 10... Qh5 11. dxc5 Bxc5 12. Bf4 = as in Keres vs Tal, 1959.

Later in the middle game, instead of <19...f5? 20. exf6 > (+0.76 @ 22 depth, Deep Fritz 14), Black can apparently get away with taking the offered pawn with 19...Qxb2 20. hxg6 = (0.00 @ 23 depth, Deep Fritz 14).

  Mating Net: Kasparov with an appetizer, a preview of what was to follow for the next 20+ years.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: <Once> Not only is Kasparov "late" developing his Rooks in this game, but he also allows his opponent to "trap" one of them with 22...Bb5?? so he can spring the winning counter trap with 23. Bxg6! .
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Two bishop sacs open up black's game and lead to quick mate.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Alright, I got 23.Bxg6, but not the followup. A puzzle I might get OTB (if someone told me this was a puzzle).

Jul-16-15  BOSTER: So, what happened after 23.Bxg6 Rf8?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <Boster> 23...Rf8 <24.Bxh5>
Premium Chessgames Member
  Reisswolf: Kasparov played 23 ♗xg6, and that was the end of Begun.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: After 24.Bxh7+, not only is Black dead lost, he is also down a pawn!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Even at this stage, the kid looked great!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Once> A great commentary. But, um, surely Kasparov doesn't 'ask'? He insists, demands, orders, commands... (reaches for thesaurus) ... requires.
Nov-19-15  Ferro: Ojo! Artista

  mckmac: Well said Domdaniel! Best proper chuckle in weeks.
Nov-19-15  NeverAgain: Black's last name actually rhymes with "dragoon", not "gun".

  thegoodanarchist: <NeverAgain: Black's last name actually rhymes with "dragoon", not "gun".>

Most stuff has to be "dumbed down" for the average American. Kind of like foreign policy questions for Ben Carson.

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: This game was Over almost before it had Begun.
Aug-16-17  tonsillolith: <12. e5!>

With this move, preventing <12...e5>, White gets a monopoly on kingside activity, stymies the development of Black's dark squared bishop, and weakens Black's control of d4.

I found that I would have a tendency to reject this move prematurely, since it has the feel of an unnecessary pawn move, ceding the d5 & f5 squares, and risking losing the center to Black f-pawn moves.

But it's a good clamping move.
