  Honza Cervenka: Quite pretty "mate" to white Queen.:-)

Of course, white can play 15.Ned5, but after 15...Nxc4 16.Nxb6 axb6 he is a piece down.

Jul-06-05  blackjacki2: All that space and no where to run
Oct-19-05  alexandrovm: Garry, show us the meaning of haste! :)
Oct-19-05  Granite: amazing how so many pieces defend squares as well!! The rook on h8 is the only black piece not guarding a key square - even the king is helping!
Oct-20-05  alexandrovm: maybe white can try something desperate like Nd5, attacking the black queen. But it looks desperate, I think it is still losing for white at this point.
Jun-16-06  savuflorin1983: <Honza Cervenka> White can choose to put his c-knight on d5 but the variant will only be a bit longer 15.Ncd5 Nxd5 16.Nxd5 Nxc4 17.Nxb6 axb6
Jul-19-06  notyetagm: Kasparov had awesome tactical alertness. I was given the puzzle with Black to play before 14 ... ♘a5! and failed to solve it in a reasonable time.

The thought of trapping the White c4-queen in the middle of the board simply did not occur to. But the fact that the White queen could not retreat back down the c-file or the a6-f1 diagonal should have alerted me that the White queen was short of flight squares (<NO RETREAT>) and thus potentially trappable.

Jul-19-06  steamroller: <savuflorin1983> That's incorrect. If 15. Ncd5, Black doesn't win by 15... Nxd5 16. Qxd5 and White escapes. Instead Black plays 15... Nxc4 16. Nxb6 Nxb6 and emerges a piece up.

Yes, with 15 ♘cd5 ♘x♕ 16 ♘x♕ ♘x♘ Black uses the <RUBBERBAND> capture sequence 15 ... ♘a5x♕c4 and 16 ... ♘c4x♘b6 to win a whole piece.

Dec-08-07  Whitehat1963: Currently at the top of the Guess-the-Move game's hardest 40 games. Don't think it'll stay on top, but it's obviously a difficult game to predict move for move.

  whiteshark: <14.fxe3> is calling for a halt before it's too late.
Feb-06-08  Whitehat1963: Okay, it's hopeless, but what's best play if white plays on via 15. Qd5?
Mar-10-11  chesschampion11: i got also a nice capablanca miniature here: Capablanca vs Masyutin, 1914
Feb-11-14  PJs Studio: Kasparov was a machine. A pure monster of accuracy and aggressiveness. Love his chess. Wish we had a hundred games from him and Fischer.
