player - even in defeat.

Obviously Garry is a magnificent player, and one can almost cut the tension here on every move with a knife. Forget about the ?? on Black's
66th, where he misses Garry's queen.
That's actually not too uncommon in
games such as this.
That's certainly an interesting opening that Black plays, and perhaps I will have to start writing things
down on index cards to remember everything. Unless you're at the master level, you don't see the point immediately, but it won't escape anybody's notice above that level.
By playing 7...Qb6! as he did (BEFORE
White had castled long), White was deprived of the more punishing re-routing of his d4-knight to e2, known
to be rather menacing to Black in this variation. Despite all that, even with White's QN devalued to only b3, after 12 moves, we still see the
same structure for Black that only
Botvinnik, Mednis, and Zenda Kozul want to endorse. None of the rest of us can stand those bishops! (and it's
unbelievable that Botvinnik endorsed Black's position - Shades of Steinitz!) So it's something to remember. Maybe I'll need it in a pinch for a critical Black round in
tournament play, but I doubt it.

|Sep-23-10|| ||Whitehat1963: I'm trying to figure that out, too.
Good game nevertheless.

|Nov-26-10|| ||laskereshevsky: this victory of Anikaev was a big surprise
Played in the 10th round of the 47th USSR's championship, shocked Garry and brocked his tournament pace...
Prior of this game Gazza achieved +3=6 in nine games:
At this point Garry KASPAROV, Viktor KUPREJCIK and Vladimir BALASHOV were on the lead with 6 point on nine.....
After the unexpected 10th round defeat Gazza had an insecure pace;
