Oct-18-05  Poisonpawns: gm8 1983 canidates qf.here beliavsky needs a win to even the match.So it is do or die with 1 more to go after this.Kasparov plays Kings Indian for the first time in this match,maybe a suprise for beliavsky.Interesting to me was that Kasparov used the Kings Indian,Tarrach and Nimzo-Indian defenses this match.Beliavsky a renowned theorist must have found it frustrating to play against several openings in a match.When he probably prepared for 1 or 2 defenses.Beliavsky only played the QGD/tartakower variation.Once Kasparov solved this opening Beliavsky was finished for the match.Basically Kasparov took away beliavsky`s greatest strength,which was opening preparation.A page out of Fischers note book.How do you prepare for someone who switches openings?This game features a dangerous line which white should not play in the Kings Indian! black sacs a pawn and gets tremendous piece activity.However after 16..Qh4? I think the game is = I like 16..Qe7 17.fxe5 Qb4 18.Qb3 Qxb3 19.axb3 Nxe5 20.Bc2 dxc4 21.Bd4 and i like black here.I think Kasparov didnt want to go to the endgame however too often in his youth.20..Bd4? Ng4!21.h3 Rd8 Black is better.By move 35 Kasparov is clearly better and playing with the great energy he is known for.He is not giving Beliavsky a break!36.Rxe3!? beliavsky succumbs to pressure and gives back the exchange.I think this is premature and he should try 36.cxb5 axb5 37.a4!? but Rc3! still holds the game for black.Great game
Oct-03-08  Ulhumbrus: 9 Bxc5 takes a pawn for apparently no compensation. It is not obvious that after 9...Nc6 10 Nge2 Black's Nf6 will in effect go to e5 forking White's KB and c4 pawn...in one move. How? The Nf6 will go to d7 with tempo, and when the White QB says "pass" by withdrawing to f2, the Nd7 will go to e5.
Feb-24-12  screwdriver: Kasparov goes up a pawn and hold on. Ends up with an ending with the same colored bishops and a good extra pawn. Therefore white resigns. Interesting gambit in the opening.

  MarkFinan: A strange gambit in the opening, i thought it was a blunder.. Nicely finished by Kasparov though, it took me a good few ninutes to realise how hopeless it was for white to have played on..
