Nov-02-05  yunis: interesting!!
Aug-19-06  mannetje: Kasparov sac. his b-pawn for a thematical break with d5. Interesting to see how both sides are trying to occupy te 5e rank. The white pawn on c4 and the classical break with b5 and d5 make this look like a Maroczy Bind.
Nov-27-11  indoknight: interesting to see the position after 12...Qc7 transposition of sicilian defense,scheveningen variation
Nov-27-11  indoknight: The move of the match is 40...Rxb2!! black still win if white move 45.Rf3 because 45...Re5+ 46.Kd2 Qe1+ 47.Kc2 d3+!! (win the material)so 45.f4 preventing ...Re5+ ,but Kasparov answer this with 45...h4!! . rook sacrifice 40...Rxb2 is very well planned ,its make black win in all variation . best game in English opening i have ever seen!
Nov-27-11  cunctatorg: I guess that the threat isn't 49. ... g2 50.Rg3 Bh6 51. Qg4 f5?? 52. Qxg6 So 49. ... g2 50. Rg3 Qf1 51. Kd2 d3 52. Qh4 Kg8 53. Qd8 Bf8 54. Qg5 (54. Qxd3 g1-Q) Qe2 . If 51. Kc2 d3 52. Kb3 d2 ; Right or wrong?
Nov-27-11  indoknight: and if Huebner dont resign , Kasparov attack is 49...g2 50.Rg3 d3! (g) pawn queening easily
Oct-12-15  ToTheDeath: A really nice game. Kasparov carefully prepares the pawn breaks on b5 and d5 and overpowers Huebner tactically in the ensuing melee.
Sep-16-16  dharopa: 43...Re5# ???

Kasparov on Kasparov: Part I
