|Nov-16-03|| ||Nova1990: Benzol, thanks for pointing out this game. Here, Huebner plays poorly in the opening and Kasparov punishes him severely for it. 12..Ne4 is possible because Kasparov saw if 13.QxN then 13..Qa5+ 14.Kd1 Nxf2+, which is a nice fork. |
|May-04-04|| ||Jim Bartle: This was part of a six-game match. Was it more or less training for K's upcoming match with Karpov? Ranked second for first half of 1985 by Informant panel, behind the famous game Beliavsky-Nunn. |
|Sep-08-05|| ||Averageguy: What an onslaught.|
|Sep-23-05|| ||notyetagm: A crushing loss with White. What a lousy way to start a match for Huebner.|
|May-15-06|| ||offramp: Kasparov had to play extremely conservatively in the 1984-5 match with against Karpov. When the match was over, and this is a bit like Alekhine after the 1927 match v Capablanca - the beast was unleashed, and he played against other GMs as if they were chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail.|
|May-30-07|| ||Eggman: I admire Kasparov for taking on such strong opposition (1981 Candidates finalist Huebner, and Andersson, ranked 3rd in the world in 1983) in short matches (6-games) - a bit of a risk, really. But he came through in fine style, beating Huebner 4.5-1.5 and Andersson 4-2, and without losing a game.|
|Jun-29-10|| ||SpiritedReposte: A young, hungry Kasparov makes a contemporary top class GM look like an amateur. Chess is a magical game when played like this.|
|Jun-29-10|| ||HeMateMe: I guess you don't try to 'out tactic' Kasparov. Huebner was in the World's top ten when this was played, right? White's Queen moves looked funny from the git-go.|
|Jul-01-10|| ||SpiritedReposte: I always thought Huebner was just under Kasparov, Karpov, Korchnoi and the like. Top 50 I'd say for sure. Its a testament to Kasparov, Karpov and....(who else was dominant in the 80s? Short maybe.)that they could outplay their peers as they did. Seems the playing field is alot more level now.|
|Nov-30-10|| ||hedgeh0g: 12...Ne4 comes like a bolt out of the blue. Very easy to spot ex-post, very difficult to spot ex-ante. ;)|
|Dec-30-11|| ||harrylime: Playing thru this in the guess the move stuff I played 11..Qa5+ intending 12.Bc3 Nd3+ ect.. Just wondering now if this is any good?|
I also went for 16...Qf5 instead of Gazza's 16... Kd7.
Anyway. Awesome game. I can only assume Gary must've visualized the ending from his 16..Kd7 onwards. That all of Huebner's three most powerful peices would be passive spectators as his king gets bullied and hunted.His rooks on home base and his queen helpless on h3 lol .. What a picture !
Ferocious stuff from Kasparov.
