|Jan-27-06|| ||EricCartman: <jackmandoo> Offcourse, the Sicilian is the worst opening in the whole chess game. I mean 1...c5? It makes no sense. Just pawnstorm ==> dead king|
|Jan-27-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: I'm sure uncle Omar approves of this game.|
|Mar-09-08|| ||positionalgenius: < his first mistake was choosing the sicilian defense...>
Cade: " I hope you are being sarcastic"
<<<<Ericcartman> Of course... 1...c5?

|Dec-20-12|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Kasparov's only loss in a simul against some leading French representatives. http://www.365chess.com/tournaments...|
|Dec-20-12|| ||Shams: <Jonathan Sarfati> Was this game a simul game too?
Kasparov vs M Sharif, 1989
Somebody should issue a correction. Not sure if a 365 web page is sufficient proof.
|Jul-22-14|| ||Thumbtack2007: According to the heading today, it was a simultaneous exhibition. Still, beating K in a simul definitely deserves a gold star.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||al wazir: If Sharif's rating was 2400+ when he played this game, as it is now, he was too strong to be playing in a simul.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Caissanist: Of all the thousands of inactive Chessgames members, I think I miss <jackmandoo> the most.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||smitten: Can you play White against the GM who is giving a simul?|
|Jul-22-14|| ||perfidious: <jackmandoo....(Kasparov's) first mistake was choosing the Sicilian Defense which has been proven to be inferior.>|
Very definitely--that's why the fish won game after game with the opening.
|Jul-22-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: It was probably a clock simul of Gazza against a team.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||perfidious: No chance Kasparov plays a mere IM in anything but a display of some sort by 1988, except possibly in an Olympiad, which this clearly was not.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||ketchuplover: What about 31.cxb3?|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Eusebius: 1...c5? Hahaha...awesome. This made my day.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||yiotta: Thanks for the jokes, folks!|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Landman: Kasparov plays like this in Evry simul.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||perfidious: <Landman> Not Evry other? Evry single time?|
|Jul-22-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: From Gazza's bio:
<In 1988 he played a simul against the French team in Evry (Game Collection: Kasparov vs French Team Simul), winning 4, drawing one and losing one.>
"Evry" can be this place: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89...
|Jul-22-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: <ketchuplover: What about 31.cxb3?>|
I guess that 31...cxb3 32.cxb3 is just fine for white. There is no back rank mate as white Rf6 and Ba6 cover f1 and white is a piece and Pawn up. Time to give up for black I would say, and Gazza agreed.
|Jul-22-14|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: Sharif does like it
Rockin' the Kaspy, Rockin' the Kaspy
It looks to me like Gary simply miscalculated when he played 26. Qc5, and underestimated the weakness of f6.
|Jul-22-14|| ||Honza Cervenka: Gazza badly miscalculated tactics after 25...c4?! 26. Be4! Qc5?? White could have played also 27.Bxf6 threatening Qh8#, and after forced 27...Bxf6 28.Ng4 winning a piece as both black Bishops are hanging and 28...Bxe4 29.Nxf6+ still forks and wins the Bishop.|
27.Bxb7 was not accurate but Gazza unfortunately followed his ill-conceived plan by 27...Qxf2?? instead of very interesting 27...Qxe5! 28.Bxc8 Kg7!! (diagram) with quite unpleasant threat Rh8 and a position, which is far from clear.

For example, 29.Ng4 Nxg4 30.Qxg4 Bd6 31.g3 Rxc8!, and white cannot take the Rook for 32.Qxc8? Qd5+ 33.Kg1 Bc5+ 34.Rf2 Qd4 etc.
|Jul-22-14|| ||Willber G: <smitten: Can you play White against the GM who is giving a simul?>|
This was Sharif's simul.
|Jul-22-14|| ||kevin86: I guess Kaspy ran into a ringer. He should have shot the Sharif-lol|
|Jul-22-14|| ||TheTamale: <YetAnotherAmateur> beat me to my version of a pun for this game. To which I can only say: great work, YAA!|
