  offramp: A superb game. I really like those games where the queens come off early but a lot of pieces are left on the board. I think 38...♘e5 might be quicker.

Jul-21-06  notyetagm: <KNIGHT FORKS> 35 ... ♗d4! works tactically because the White d2-rook is <OVERWORKED>, having to defend both the e2-forking square and the d4-target square of the Black f4-knight.

The White d2-rook cannot defend both of these squares which are a knight's move apart.

Jul-22-06  thathwamasi: <offramp> 38..e5 might not be quicker as the square is protected by white knight...correct me if i am wrong.
Jul-30-07  sanyas: <thathwamasi> 38...♘e5 is indeed one of those meaningless improvements, forcing mate rather than allowing the typical computerish massive sacrifice to prolong the game. 39.♘xe5 ♖xe5 mates with a new motif. Kasparov played perfectly; Huebner never had a chance.
Aug-02-09  pericles of athens: 8...b5!!! nice one.
Oct-22-10  Lyink: Wow! What a game. Slow but irresistible attack.
Huebner castles, uncastles and castles again. Kasparov knew how to punish that!

  hedgeh0g: 8...b5!? is a typical shot from Kasparov. Nxb5 is answered by Nxe4, trading wing pawn for centre pawn. At first, it appears as though White has a strong reply in Nxc7, but ...Nc6 Nxa8 Qa5+ Bd2 Nxd2 Nxd2 Nxd4! gives Black a great position with tremendous activity.

Also, Qxc7 is again answered by Nc6, when Black's superior development gives him adequate compensation for the pawn.

Nov-28-11  indoknight: emmm.... little stream roller! this is another great game between Huebner Kasparov Huebner vs Kasparov, 1981
Dec-17-11  indoknight: 21.Kf1? 22.Ke2? is not a good idea , it make white lost a lot of tempo!
Jun-25-15  ToTheDeath: Powerful attack without Queens!
