Kibitzer's Corner
May-07-04  Bobsterman3000: Was 12...0-0-0 a blunder? It sure looks that way to me. Kasparov's bishops are already pointing at black's queenside, and after the castle Kasparov's his knights are withing easy range of squares in proximity to the black king.

I think castling short may have been a better choice here...

Jul-10-06  KingG: Black's pieces aren't very well placed for a Q-side pawn storm, so castling short looks quite dangerous.
May-16-08  apexin: nice finish with Ra6#mate
May-27-10  ToTheDeath: 26.Nb5+!! and 29.Rxc5!

Very pretty combination.

Jun-19-12  achieve: I remember van der Wiel getting hammered by Kasparov <every single time> - but this appears not entirely true.

I saw this game Live in Amsterdam and thought this must be the most painful one for John, who was known for stopping to breath, it seemed, as his face and neck turned red and purple, teeth clenched, eventually finding that one way out of the stranglehold:

Resignation

Jun-19-12  King Death: <achieve> Not quite every game, there's this one (Kasparov vs Van der Wiel, 1981) that was also played in the 4.a3 Queen's Indian.
Jun-19-12  achieve: <KD> Yes, I saw that, and it was just my recollection of the games I watched here in Holland; that's why I looked up the head to head, hence my "this appears not entirely true" correction (understated).

vd Wiel beat a very young Kasparov, and did pay the price for that.

Jun-20-12  King Death: <achieve: ...vd Wiel beat a very young Kasparov, and did pay the price for that.>

Did he ever, lol.

May-13-15  RKnight: It seems to me that van der Wiel resigned prematurely. Consider 31. ...Ka1 e.g. 32. Qc2 Bxe4+ and black counterattacks. Very double-edged.
Jul-24-15  okiesooner: Writing in the New York Times at the time of this game, the late Robert Byrne wrote that 31...Ka8 32. Qc7 Bxe4+ 33. Ka2 "was of no use" because of the threat of 34. Rxa6#. http://www.nytimes.com/1988/06/21/n...
Jul-25-15  Eusebius: <RKnight: It seems to me that van der Wiel resigned prematurely. Consider 31. ...Ka1 e.g. 32. Qc2 Bxe4+ and black counterattacks. Very double-edged.>

After 32...Bxe4+ 33.Ka1 and still it's over
