  hedgeh0g: A brilliant game. Kasparov plays in the true spirit of the Benoni, responding to every attack with a counterattack and generating piece play wherever possible.
Dec-23-12  leka: The finnish master Kaarle Ojanen elo rating 2563 the world ranking 89th beat Paul Keres in 1960.Ojanen killed the Benoni Ojanen played bishop d3! knight e2! f4!.Kaarle Ojanen was not a pro chess player.He had a job.Ojanen studied chess in the weekend and summer holidays.Both Spassky played against Fischer in 1972 WC match queen c2? Korchnoi against Kasparov g3 bishop g2 knight f3??? Spassky and Korchnoi should had played The Ojanen attack bishop d3 knight e2 f4!!!
Jan-01-13  Balmo: How has this never been Game of the Day? It's one of the greatest chess games ever played in my opinion. Just don't give it a crass pun... Some games deserve better!
Feb-16-13  pescau: In the picture mentioned by <GrahamClayton> it can be seen the next board, with a finished game where Tal had black. The black king in the middle of the board indicates that Black won, doesn't it? I think the game is this one: H Wirthensohn vs Tal, 1982

Cheers.

Sep-12-13  MarkFinan: Ive just watched an interview with Gazza "The silver fox" kaspy, where he annotates this game, and all i can say is.. Wow!I

Well ok, maybe i can find a few more words ;)

The interviewer must be unaware that his interviewee is commonly regarded as the greatest chess player to ever grace the game, because he keeps chirping "Yes, but you could have played blah, blah blah"!! Its effing Kaspy the friendly socialist ffs!!! I think he knows what he coulda and couldnotta played LOL! What a game though. Funny how he tells the story of Korchnoi getting strait down to business and not shaking hands. Also good pics of Beliavsky and Karpov looking on.

#GENIUS. :-)

Sep-12-13  MarkFinan: Ok, the Interviewee is an IM! Haha.. Here’s me thinking hes some Joe blow like me LOL
Apr-24-15  ToTheDeath: How has this never been GOTD? It's one of Garry's best efforts. The knight sat en prise for 7 moves!!

  Phony Benoni: The pun is irrelevant. The game's the thing today.

This was the first Kasparov game I really looked at. Dazzling.

  al wazir: 34. Ne4, threatening 35. Rf8+ Ke7 36. Rf7+, would have given white some play. What does black do? 34...Ke7 35. Bg7+ just repeats the position. If 34...Qb5/Qb7/Qf5, then 35. Nxd6+. 34...Ne1+ 35. Kg3 accomplishes nothing.
Oct-22-15  RookFile: This is a modern game of chess if ever there was one.

  al wazir: Make that 34. Ne4, threatening 35. Rf8+ Ke7 36. Ng5.

  beatgiant: <al wazir> White's counterplay appears to fizzle after 35. Ne4 Qe7. What follow-up do you have in mind?

  HeMateMe: The heading says "Luzern." Do they mean Lucerne switzerland, with an alternate spelling?
Oct-22-15  Nerwal: Lucerne's official language is German, and what is spelt Lucerne in English and French is written Luzern in German.

  offramp: Most places in Switzerland have names in French, German and Italian (sometimes Romanche). It seems to be a lottery as to which version we use in English.

Personally I've always thought of Switzerland as essentially a Germanic country. Its Weltanschauung seems German.

In Switzerland itself mostly the name in the official language of the region is used. With multilingual regions it's a bit diffucult (f.x. Biel/Bienne, which is actually named this way in Wikipedia!)

  kevin86: Kasparov can make the pieces sing!
Nov-18-16  Saniyat24: Could Korchnoi have played 29.Ne3 instead of Ne5?

  beatgiant: <Saniyat24>
On 29. Ne3, at minimum Black has 29...Qxd2+ winning a piece.
Dec-08-16  Saniyat24: <beatgiant: How about 29. Qe4?

On 29. Qxe4 Qxe4 30. Nxe4 Bxa1 is a big material advantage for Black and probably a won ending.
Apr-15-18  gidguy2000: Can someone explain the downside of 33.Ne4?

I was going over the game with Seirwan's "Winning Chess Brilliancies" and he notes that 33.Ra8 is the way to go (and I trust he is right!) But it also seems that 33.Ne4 stops the threats of Qxd7 and Qf2+. Even 33....Qxd5 isn't a problem due to the fork on f6.

What am I missing?

33..Qxe4 is check.

  ChessHigherCat: FishStick thinks the obvious 20. fxe5 is much better than the game line 20. Bxe4. I was wondering about that...
