Nov-10-05  Koster: According to all the KID books black has to take on f5 with the g pawn. Look how white's pieces use the e4 sq.

Gligoric vs Fischer, 1961

I remember reading about this game in one of Kasparov's books -- the Test of Time, maybe? During the postmortem, after ...Bf6 Nxf6 Gufeld (famously fond of the fianchettoed kb) supposedly rushed up and said "Criminal!" Asked who he meant, he said, "Both of you!"

Apr-07-07  KingG: <keypusher> <Gufeld supposedly rushed up and said "Criminal!" Asked who he meant, he said, "Both of you!"> Lol.

I can see why Kasparov might be a 'criminal' here, but what did White do wrong?

Nov-21-11  bronkenstein: for GK and Dvoretsky`s detailed comments. IMO good material for guess the move.
Oct-31-15  ToTheDeath: 12...f5? was simply an oversight on Kasparov's part. In his preparation he was going to include the moves 12...Bd7 13.b3 first before going ...f5 but forgot. The opening of the long diagonal makes a significant difference. The rest of the game was mostly suffering for Garry although he missed several chances to save the game.
