|Oct-02-03|| ||pogo5: Superb manoeuvring and a delightful flowing sequence in the end. Though Garry missed the faster and beautiful 49...hxg5 with 50.Qh5# being essentially unavoidable (49...hxg5 50.Kxg5 Qh5+ 51.Kf4 Qf5# ; 49...hxg5 50.Qd4+ f6 51.Rb7+ Kh6 and the lethal threat remains). |
|Oct-02-03|| ||drukenknight: It seems that white goofed up before that. it seems that 44 Qd4+ would certainly be a prepatory move before all this checking starts. |
|Oct-03-03|| ||pogo5: Say, dk, I do not see how 44.Qd4+ Kh7 can help white's game. If you have specific variations sustaining your claim, please provide them ; if not, why do you talk?? |
|Oct-03-03|| ||drukenknight: I guess you are not from a free country. |
|Oct-03-03|| ||NiceMove: I bet he starting seeing the winning point at Qe5. Which leaves the rook undefended for a winning attack.
Black position is superior to white's, the white knight is useless since it has to defend against the pawn, and an great finish. |
|Oct-03-03|| ||drukenknight: after44.Qd4+ Kh7 45 Qxc3:
SHOW ME YOUR WINNING LINE
|Oct-03-03|| ||ughaibu: How about 45..... Qf3 46.Kg1 Qg3 47.Kf1 Rc7 followed by things like Qf3 or Ne4? |
|Oct-04-03|| ||dalilama: dk, what about 45.....Qxf3+ then there are several combos from there... |
|Oct-04-03|| ||dalilama: to add to ughaibu, I think it would go more like....45...Qxf3+ 46 Kg1 Nh3+ 47 Kh2 Nf2 then if white plays 48 Kg1 (to avoid mate) ..Qxg3+ 49 Kf1 Ne4 (forking the queen and the mate on f2) then if white plays 50 Qe1...then it gets ugly... |
|Oct-04-03|| ||drukenknight: hell, what time in the morning was it when I wrote that nonsense? |
|Feb-12-05|| ||Ernesto7: the best game i've seen this year....WOW |
|Feb-12-05|| ||aw1988: I would play 7...Ne4, just to be annoying :P |
|Feb-06-06|| ||mehul: This is an exceptional game. There's a bunch of fine moves like 14...Kf8 (Who would have thought of that as a way of unpinning?) and 19...c4 (a shade of Bernstein-Capablanca 1914.). |
The final combination...beginning with 42...Qf5 is fourteen moves deep! And garry must have sensed it 5-6 moves earlier. And all moves the moves in the combination are forced. Amazing stuff. Miss this guy's chess.
|Apr-28-08|| ||deadlysin: 19...a4 was better (approved by kasparov himself)
could be a puzzle
|Nov-05-08|| ||KingG: <aw1988> 7...Ne4 is known as Lasker's defence, and is really a drawing weapon for Black. 7...b6 is the Tartakower-Makagonov-Bondarevsky variation, and gives Black slightly more winning chances.|
<Though Garry missed the faster and beautiful 49...hxg5 with 50.Qh5# being essentially unavoidable> I'm not sure if Kasparov missed this, or just wanted to play out his pretty pawn promotion sequence.
