|Dec-23-06|| ||DeepThought: It's not that devastating. After 22..Rc8 23. Qf5
Black could play 23..Bd8
Then White cannot checkmate at h7, and after taking the rook with 24.Qxc8, take a look at 24..Nd7

|Dec-23-06|| ||ahmadov: I do not like this man at all for his arrogance but Allah has given him great talent. This game is a further proof of this.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Tacticstudent: i thought about Nf6+, but it's not so good since trades will only give black breath room. Kasparov's plan was fine better than Nf6+.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||alexmagnus: Missed it. Concentrated all the thoughts on Nf6+.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Tacticstudent: in fact, in te position in which black resigned, Kasparov gives mate or get a fantastic material superiority. See the variants:
24- ... g6 or h6
25- Qxf7+ Kh8
25- Rb7 Nc8
26- Rfb1, bringing white's last piece to combat in the seventh file.
|Dec-23-06|| ||playground player: <ahmadov> Is Kasparov really as arrogant as all that? He seemed pretty gracious in a few radio interviews I've heard him do. Anyhow, compared to Bobby Fischer, Kasparov is a saint.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||aazqua: Ahmadov sounds like a real donkey. Keep your allah in your pants buddy. Kasparov is pretty run of the mill considering he is the greatest chess player ever. I'd say Gert was in over his head and just waiting for the axe to fall.|
"I do not like this man at all for his arrogance but Allah has given him great talent. This game is a further proof of this."
|Dec-23-06|| ||Tacticstudent: in fact, kasparov seems to be a polite person, but he's known to be very conceited sometimes. just like when he's playing against Judit Polgár, even before the game start, he's already written that he's won. Well, I don't know if that is true, but, anyway...|
|Dec-23-06|| ||laskereshevsky: HELLO
When I find the solution in few seconds i felt very proud of me, but immediatly after id remember to had saw this game in a book ( maybe the first about "GAZZA" ) ab. 20 years ago (!?!?)....SO.... I CANT be absolutly shore that my "achivment" was not other just a kind of mental FLASH-BACK....WHAT A MESS........
|Dec-23-06|| ||ahmadov: <aazqua> I would never compare you with a donkey, because that would sound insulting that animal.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Dick Brain: I've seen it before but I still give myself credit for solving it.|
Chess, I say, is a game of memory.
|Dec-23-06|| ||LivBlockade: The move I really like is 15. b4!, which showed that White had a large positional advantage and created weaknesses in Black's position. I assume that the follow up to 15...cxb4 would have been 16. xf6+ xf6; 17. e4 followed by 18. xb4 with a clear advantage. The combination to exploit these weaknesses was nice too. Well played by the teenager.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Slayer772002: Someone plz can tell me why the knight on C8 can't be taken _______|
|Dec-23-06|| ||technical draw: <Slayer> Please indicate move number.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||alphee: "Cross fire" from the bishop and the queen on f7 was looking like the solution but I could not fine how to achieve it as 20.xd6 xd6 21.xd5 didn't work because of the rooks ... and Nf6 was no better. Didn't see Nb6 role in the combination ... Congratulations to the ones who did|
|Dec-23-06|| ||ahmadov: <Slayer772002: Someone plz can tell me why the knight on C8 can't be taken> I assume you are talking about move 22. If Black takes the Knight on c8 then White would play Qf5.|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Slayer772002: Oh ! Simple like always ;)
|Dec-23-06|| ||uscstudent: After move 15 why does not black take the b4 pawn?
|Dec-23-06|| ||kevin86: I was a part of the Nf6+ club :(|
|Dec-23-06|| ||Themofro: I saw Nb6 but discarded it in favor of Nxd6. The kinght on d6 can't be taken due to Bxd5 and then picking up a full rook. And if Bxg2 then Qxf7 and Qxe8 and mate.
Oh never mind, just saw that Nxd6 Bxd6 attacking the queen, leading to white having a pawn for a knight. Otherwise though... knew i couldn't be smarter than Kasparov lol|
|Dec-23-06|| ||LivBlockade: <uscstudent: After move 15 why does not black take the b4 pawn?>|
I gave my opinion above. Black is left with weak points such as d6 and b6. No quick win, but a strong positional advantage.
|Dec-24-06|| ||Fisheremon: <playground player: <ahmadov> Is Kasparov really as arrogant as all that? He seemed pretty gracious in a few radio interviews I've heard him do. Anyhow, compared to Bobby Fischer, Kasparov is a saint.>
the move Qf5 noted by many people should be also played on 24th move (instead of 24. Bd5).|
|Apr-22-08|| ||analysethat: I am often interested in how much these GMs actually see in real life (before the analysts get hold of it), and then in how they manage to see it. This interests me in the quiet moves made inbetween the fire works
When Kasparov played 17 Qf4 and 18. Na4, what were his thought processes. When he played 19. Rb1 then he must already have seen the knights journey to c8 (he was always good with this knights). BUt what were his thoughts when playing Qf4, and had he already planned the sequence?|
|May-27-10|| ||ToTheDeath: 15.b4! is a star move. 15...cxb4 16.Nxf6+ forces the ugly 16...gxf6- since if 16...Qxf6 17.Ne4 Qe7 18.Qxb4. Here b6 and d6 are attacked, and White gets a large advantage.|
The rest of the game is very nice and vintage Kasparov.
|Apr-08-12|| ||Otinokyad: Move 22 is today's Sunday Times Chess Puzzle. I can usually do these, but not this time. I just didn't see Nc8.|
