Nov-08-05  alexandrovm: <hayton3: My oh my, a virgin Kasparov page in his beloved Botvinnik Variation....finally deflowered> yep, but this time with the black pieces (read D44's Kasparov-Tal 1986). Kasparov is known to defend the white side of this opening...but was impressed by Tal's black improvment and he tried himself.
Feb-28-06  waddayaplay: This was from Kasparovs simul vs. HSV team, Hamburg. However, the simul was in 1985, not 1986? Anyways, his result was below par with 3.5/8. The result was to initiate the chessbase server, so Kasparov could research his opponents better.
