|Mar-07-04|| ||kashparov72c5: Black's win demoralized the proponets of this openingfor three full years--until this theoretical obstacle was overcome in Dvorecki-Vulfson,ussr 1986.The play of these two gamesis a lesson in the evolutionary theory of the K.I.A--one you should learn before you go any further. |
|Mar-14-05|| ||offramp: When you play these lines against black you don't expect to be totally overwhelmed. |
|May-12-05|| ||notyetagm: A simply beautiful win by Kasparov against the player who was #3 in the world at the time. This game made Nunn's 101 Brilliant Chess Miniatures.|
|May-12-05|| ||notyetagm: Look at the White pieces after 19 ♘d2, they are laughably placed. An English author would say something like "They make a rather poor impression". :-)|
|Jan-08-06|| ||notyetagm: 14 ♗d2? is essentially the losing move. <In these KIA-type positions, White absolutely must play e4-e5 if Black has managed to get in ... d5-d4.> Hence Ljubojevic should have played 14 e5; it was essental. |
After 14 ♗d2? e5! Black has complete central domination. Kasparov then proceded to squash White like a bug with a KID-type Black kingside attack. This kingside attack was completely justified since White could not counter-attack in the center, which Black owns lock, stock, and barrel.
Hard to believe that White was the #3 player in the world when this game was played.
|Feb-15-06|| ||waddayaplay: The only game in this variation by Dvoretsky I can find is M Dvoretzky vs Khalifman, 1987|
The game S Kindermann vs Short, 1987 appears to bare a more closer resemblance.
|Mar-27-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: 12 Nb3 seems to place the QN uselessly, except for the purpose of supporting the move d4, the very move which Kasparov prevents now.|
|Mar-27-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: Instead of 14 Bd2, 14 Nd2 improves the emplacement of the QN at once, taking a step towards Nc4.|
|Mar-27-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: 18 Nd2 allows Black to play ...f4 in safety. On 18 ef gf The White KR is attacking Black's centre although this gives Black a semi open f file.|
|Mar-27-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: 20...g5 !! intends apparently what looks like a masterly example of the art of the intermediate move, the intermediate move in this case being 21..Ng6! in reply to 21 hg, offering the h6 pawn instead of recapturing on g5 with the h6 pawn, as well as discovering an attack upon the g5 pawn. White can then either allow ...Qxg5 or bring Black's KB into play by accepting the offer of a pawn on h6. It occurs to me that Kasparov's creative faculties were working rather well on this day.|
|Jul-31-06|| ||jumper32: 11..Ra7 impressed me. Black prepared the 23..Rg7 already in move 11 !|
|Aug-23-06|| ||aw1988: Ulhumbrus has a good idea with 14. Nd2. notyetagm states that e5 is essential, and both moves may be fine, but e5 is not the only move.|

I have Dvoretsky-Wulfson somewhere. I will try to upload it, unless somebody can find a version already on line.
|Sep-19-07|| ||notyetagm: What a stupendous game by Kasparov!
|Nov-30-10|| ||hedgeh0g: 20...g5! 21...Ng6!|
|Dec-01-10|| ||Fusilli: <notyetagm: What a stupendous game by Kasparov!>|
True, but wasn't Ljubojevic uncharacteristically passive, though?
|Nov-13-12|| ||Ulhumbrus: 11...Ra7!! prepares potentially to swing the rook over to the king side following the move ...f5. However instead of 12 Nb3, 12 e5 begins the standard King's Indian attack by acquiring an advantage in space on the king side|
|Mar-11-15|| ||saintdufus: Games like this show that Kasparov was in a league all his own, several levels above his competitors.|
Kasparov made world-class grandmasters look like club players.
