Jul-06-05  InitiativeCheck: Kaspy sacrificing pawns again to conjure up an irresistable attack. Curse you Garry for making it look so easy!
Nov-28-05  KingG: Wow! What a game!

I wonder though, should 'Trening 1981' by 'Training 1981' sice Nikitin was Kasparov's trainer, or is there such a place as 'Trening'.

Nov-28-05  alexandrovm: great game indeed. I wonder the same as <KingG> < sice Nikitin was Kasparov's trainer, or is there such a place as 'Trening'.>
Nov-28-05  alicefujimori: According to my database on Kasparov's games, the info does say "Trening, URS". So the chances of it being a place is quite high.
Nov-28-05  KingG: <alicefujimori> That's quite a coincidence then.

Why would that mean it's a place? I'd just assume it is what it says, a training game.

Nov-28-05  alexandrovm: <I'd just assume it is what it says, a training game.> well, because it doesn't say training...

  acirce: No, it says Trening but it's in Russian (a loan word from English obviously).
Nov-28-05  alexandrovm: <acirce: No, it says Trening but it's in Russian...> Thanks for the information. So, trening is training in russian? I didn't know, thanks once again...

  keypusher: What a tremendous game. I love at the end when Kasparov spurns a discovered check in order to force mate.
Dec-23-06  ToTheDeath: I love the early 80's Kasparov. Nothing like it before or since.
Dec-23-06  Kwesi: This game reminded me of Spassky vs H Ree, 1967
Sep-30-17  Albion 1959: A relentless wave of non-stop pressure, move after move of threats. A typical of Kasparov games !
Sep-30-17  Howard: Wonder if this gem made the Informant. Remind me to look it up.

  perfidious: Nikitin was a trainer of Kasparov, back in the day, while also collaborating with him on at least one opening monograph.

Whale of an effort by the future champion, and a typical Kasparov 'power play' game from one of his early favourites.

He sometimes trained him at night as well.
