This is known as the "opening phase" of chess. It's actually fairly common...

Anyone wishing to watch the TV program that featured this game follow the links. I recorded this many years ago and have just converted it from the old VHS format.
|Feb-18-10|| ||piroflip: N.B. For some reason part two does not show up in a search which is why I have included seperate links for each.|
|Feb-18-10|| ||vonKrolock: <piroflip> Great stuff - thanks!|
<14.h4> White's position becomes soon quite hard to defend - maybe was therefore 14.h3 advisable instead
|Feb-18-10|| ||whatthefat: <piroflip>
Fantastic, I really enjoyed it!
Also, thanks for disabling comments. I'm not sure why, but youtube seems to attract the most ignorant, combative, and downright stupid posters on the entire internet. It's nice to not have such a nice video sullied by such nonsense.
|Feb-19-10|| ||piroflip: Yes whatthefat, the freedom of the internet is sadly, abused by the childish and the foolish.|

I like to think we are its raison d'etre.
|Feb-19-10|| ||coolthing76: <piroflip> Thank you so much for recording, converting, uploading and linking the videos. They are so interesting.|
|Feb-19-10|| ||nelech: thank you very much piroflip for these very interesting videos . what happened with these american juniors ? Are they still playing ( especially Edelman !)|
|Feb-21-10|| ||piroflip: many thanks for your comments guys.
as for what happened to them?
I guess they all decided that it was easier to make a killing (money) in the city rather than play chess for a living.
|Feb-22-10|| ||hstevens129: From Dennis Monokroussos' great blog, The Chess Mind:|
"The bearded fellow working with Kasparov is ChessBase's Frederic Friedel. About the players: Patrick Wolff, Ilya Gurevich and Alex Fishbein all became grandmasters. Gurevich even won the world junior championship, but both he and Wolff quit playing. Both work in the financial industry. Stuart Rachels didn't become a GM, but became an IM and won the US championship one year in a huge upset. Like his late father, he's a professional philosopher. Vivek Rao became an IM but quit the game to jump into the financial sector. Danny Edelman also made it to IM..and quit. I'm not sure what he does."

Although it should be noted that "HoTsExYpRiNcEsS123" and "Sk8rB0ii28" don't tend to make much of an appearance on chess video commentary pages.
|Apr-14-10|| ||TheMacMan: Kasparov crushed again in this game, his name doesnt belong in top 5 top chessplayers of all time.|
|Apr-14-10|| ||chancho: <TheMacMan> It was simul game. (against a Grandmaster no less.) |
By your logic, Fischer is not top 5 for losing a game like this?
Fischer vs H Dondis, 1964

This is absolutely comical-you missed your calling as a joke writer, I should think. if one were to apply this logic to its extreme, there's no player who's any good.
Reductio ad absurdum.
|Jul-15-11|| ||birthtimes: Kaspy gets a taste of his own medicine...most of his pieces are on the queenside versus a kingside attack on his king!|

"Kasparov told me later that my move was a 'famous mistake', and that 9...Qb6! is best and gives equal chances."
