|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: Maybe black's 10...Nxe5 is wrong, it gives white too much space and development advantage. I thought white should develop his LSB and later, chase the knight away or capture it.|
Quite a pasting on Nunn, who must have been in the world's top 25 at the time.
|Mar-29-11|| ||kapitanevans: Very neat, long live Kasparov|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Everett: I believe 8..Ng4!? gives black good chances for early equality.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||perfidious: <Everett> At least 8....Ng4 or ....e6 have more to offer than the old move 8....Nc6.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||kevin86: Kasparov:none is better,not even Nunn.The attack is too strong!|

<not even Nunn.>... lol
|Mar-29-11|| ||TuxedoKnight: this game is interesting,
almost as interesting as http://tuxedoknight.uphero.com/
|Mar-29-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <Kevin86: Kasparov:none is better>|
Can Kasparov be all that good if having none would be better?
|Mar-29-11|| ||Antonina: Of course Nunn has a worse position but why not try f. ex.
19. Bxd4 Qxg5
20. Bd5+ Be6 where black's a bishop down but can look for a draw. I agree it's a lost game for black but I wouldn't give up so quickly.
|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: < Kasparov:none is better,not even Nunn.The attack is too strong!>|
I think Nunn is better than none.

Kasparov vs Nunn 1986 18...? <Antonina: Of course Nunn has a worse position but why not try f. ex. 18... Qe7 19. Bxd4 Qxg5 20. Bd5+ Be6> Crafty End Game Trainer check: http://www.chessvideos.tv/endgame-t... After 18 Ng5 the EGT does indeed play <Antonina>'s move 18...Qe7 but after 19. Bxd4 Qxg5 20. Bd5+ plays Kh8! saving the piece.
I agree that Nunn could have played on. There is a win after 18...Qe7: enjoy (A) finding it and (B) confirming it by playing it out against the EGT. I have found (B) much harder than (A).
|Mar-29-11|| ||Thanatos64: After 18. ... Qe7, the Crafty EGT elects to give the piece away after 19. Bd5+ Kh8 20. Nf7+ Kg8 21. Bxd4 Be6, where White ends up a piece ahead, although Black ends up snagging the a2 pawn with his queen. Nevertheless, it's an easy game from that point on. My guess is that Be6 is then to avoid Re1 followed up by Nd6 with a Re8 to come in the exd4 lines.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||Penguincw: Congratz on winning again <FSR>.Do you have a list of puns you submited for Game of the Day?|
|Mar-29-11|| ||WhiteRook48: I don't get Nunn's resignation|
|Mar-29-11|| ||HeMateMe: White has Q-c4+. black can't block the check without losing a piece. If he plays K-h8 he loses to a Knight fork in f7. If he plays K-e1, white has R-e1+ followed by mate at f7.|
|Mar-29-11|| ||sevenseaman: <WhiteRook48: I don't get Nunn's resignation>|
F7 is under intense pressure.
|Mar-30-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: <An Englishman: Good Evening: This is indeed a Neo-Grunfeld by transposition *** >|
Indeed. Position after 7. ... 0-0 is <D79> per ECO classifications.
|Aug-13-11|| ||JCRchess: Sometimes even GMs forget the basics of early King safety.|
|Dec-15-13|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: The main threat is a check on the a2-g8 diagonal, followed by Nf7, followed by a discovered check winning the queen or a double check leading to Qg8. This assumes Kh8 against the check; in lines where Kf8 is legal, Nxh8 can be an unpleasant response.|
But I'm not immediately seeing the win against 18 ... Qf6.
|Dec-15-13|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Oh, now I see it. Qc4+, Nf7+ and Nh6++ leads either to mate at g8 or a pin-win of the queen on the f file. More precisely, white gets to take the d4 knight, and if black recaptures, the pin-win of the queen happens.|
|Jan-02-14|| ||offramp: <chessgames> will inform you that <Garry Kasparov beat John Nunn 3 to 0, with 2 draws>.|
The three wins were in 21, 27 and 18 moves.
|Jan-02-14|| ||Strelets: Continuing <<Cheapo by the Dozen>>'s analysis,
18...Qf6 19 Qc4+ and there are two main variations to consider
19...Kh8 [19...Kf8? 20 Nxh7+] 20 Nf7+ Kg8 21 Nh6+ Kf8 22 Rf1 Bf5 23 Qg8+ Ke7 24 Qxa8 Bxh6 25 Qxb7+ and now the bishop on h6 is lost as well.|
On 19...Ne6, White has 20 Rf1 Qe7 21 Rf7 Qxf7 22 Nxf7 Kxf7 23 Bd5 and a decisive advantage even though no forced win is immediately apparent.
|Aug-26-14|| ||SpiritedReposte: Like so many other Kasparov games, down a pawn...but winning the game!|
|Feb-21-15|| ||offramp: <Garry Kasparov beat John Nunn 3 to 0, with 2 draws.>|
The two white wins were in 18 and 21 moves and the black win was in 27 moves. Rapidement, moi!
|Mar-11-17|| ||johnkr: Black erred with 16...Nxd4. After 16...Bxd4 he seems to have =.|
