'He's had a lot of experience with them.'
|May-02-06|| ||LluviaSean: Wow...that's a pretty random thing to say, in Kibitzer's Corner in this game...|
|Jun-24-10|| ||Xeroxx: If this is the only game between them Lerner has a plus score over Kasparov.|
|Dec-27-10|| ||Fusilli: Hard to understand why not 30...Bxb3--Fritz 11 says it is the way to go.|
37.Ra6? clearly blows it. 37.b4 or 37.Ra7 and White is still way ahead. There is no 37...Bh4 threat because of 38.Nxf5+.

Kasparov needs 39.Rxe6 to keep equality.
|Nov-04-11|| ||Oceanlake: Lasker once said, of a move of Bird's I believe, "Attack at all costs!"|
|Nov-04-11|| ||whiteshark: <Teacher and Lerner> +1 likes :D|
|Nov-04-11|| ||mariola: Why not 39.Rxe6 ?
If 39 ... Rxe6 40.Nxf5+ and Nxe3
If 39 ... Rxe1 40.Nxf5 and taking bishop on e7 with winning endgame in both cases
|Nov-04-11|| ||Sastre: Although 39.Rxe6 is a strong move, Black isn't lost after 39...Rexg3 40.Rxg6+ Rxg6 41.Bf2 Rc6.|
|Nov-04-11|| ||kevin86: The pawn will go-and with it the game.
Such was early Kasparov.
|Nov-04-11|| ||kevin86: just sixteen at the time...|
|Nov-04-11|| ||monopole2313: Looks like the teacher got "schooled" in this one.|
|Nov-04-11|| ||abuzic: <29...Kh7> (29...c5 looks better) |
<30.Rg1> (30.Rfc1 looks stronger: like if
37.Ng3 Be6 <37...Bd5?? 38.Nxf5+ Kh5 39.Rh7+ Rh6 40.Rxh6#> 38.Ba6)
<30...Kh6> (30...Bxb3 is better)
<37.Ra6> (I agree with <Fusilli> 37.b4 or 37.Ra7 keeps white's superiority)
(may be white with 37.Ra6 was hoping for something like
<38...Rxe6 Nxf5+ 39.Kh7 40.Nxe3 Bxc5 41.f5; 38...Nxe6 39.Nf5+ Kh5 40.Nxe3; 38...Bxc5 39.Nxf5+ Kh7 40.Rxg6 Kxg6 41.Nxe3>
<39.Bf2> (Again I agree with <Fusilli> 39.Rxe6 may keep white fighting:
39.Rxe6 Rexg3 <39...Rxe6 40.Nxf5+ Kh7 41.Nxe3>
42.Be3, black is better, but white has chances to draw)
|Nov-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: Fun Pun. Lerner must have been stronger than his 2515 rating, in 1979. Ratings inflation and the scarcity of rated tournaments for many Soviet players might have kept this guy's rating artificially low. One poster says Lerner was later ranked No. 16 in the world.|
Still, Fischer would never have lost to a 2500....
|Nov-04-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: This is not your typical Kasparov game ... did Garry offer any explanation (after the game) of why he lost?|
|Nov-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: Kasparov claimed that Lerner was using chess software, that he was cheating. How else can a great player be beaten?|
|Nov-04-11|| ||Creg: Is it me or is everyone making a big deal out of this?! GK wasn't even a GM in 1979, and he was still a teenager!|
|Nov-04-11|| ||KKDEREK: < HeMateMe: Kasparov claimed that Lerner was using chess software, that he was cheating. How else can a great player be beaten?>|
Where do you hear that?
|Nov-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: I was using the classic AJ v. Nakamura internet game, as a model.|
|Nov-05-11|| ||KKDEREK: Course. My bad! :p|
|Nov-05-11|| ||JoergWalter: <Creg: Is it me or is everyone making a big deal out of this?! GK wasn't even a GM in 1979, and he was still a teenager!>|
Does anybody know why Kasparov did not have the GM norms/ title at the age of 16/17?
|Nov-05-11|| ||Retireborn: <Joerg> I believe Gary made his second GM norm by winning the tournament in Baku in March 1980. Not sure exactly when it was ratified but he did indeed become a GM at age 17.|
