|Jul-16-04|| ||Calchexas: Chessgames, it should be 32.Bxf6, not Bxf6+.
Very nice game, btw. Gazza launches a very cool attack by the end.
|Apr-23-05|| ||Pawsome: <calchexas> <chessgames> shouldn't the last move be Rxf6+? if Kg8 then Qe6 + if Ke8 Rf8# --- no?|
|Apr-23-05|| ||offramp: 35.Qe5 is quickest.|
|Feb-19-06|| ||rubbermeetsroad: Great game by the White side here.
And there was no reason for Vukic
to decry being swept away by
young Gazz. Garry is already more
talented and tactically superior to
the great majority of his rivals.
|Mar-13-08|| ||percyblakeney: This is a nice game by Kasparov, who turned 16 while the tournament took place. After beating Vukic he had 8 wins and 2 draws. Vukic was allegedly one of the players that had complained about Kasparov's participation, meaning that it was an insult to have an unrated kid in the field.|
All Kasparovís opponents in Banja Luka were more than 8 years older than him, and he hadnít been given any Elo rating yet. On the other hand he had already the year before shared 5th of 18 in a strong Soviet Championship where all participants were in the top 100.
Vukic was no weak player, and he finished second behind Hort in the same tournament in 1976. This time he ended up five points behind Kasparov, who won far ahead of players like Petrosian and Andersson, in his first of many impressive International tournament victories between 1979 and 2005.

Vukic was allegedly one of the players that had complained about Kasparov's participation, meaning that it was an insult to have an unrated kid in the field.
Vukic allegedly said: "Kasparov doesn't even have an international rating. So why should a grandmaster play such a weak player? The Russians are sending us children. They're insulting us."
Apparently the local spectators supported Kasaprov from the start of the tournament, and they gave him hearty support when it was time to play Vukic. When Vukic resigned, there was shouting, clapping and cheering in the playing hall.
