|Jun-24-05|| ||ksadler: What happened to Kasparov in this game? He couldn't have missed 37. Qe3. Or perhaps just a case of being human and miscalculating?|
|Feb-19-06|| ||Father Karras: 36.Qg5 is a blunder. But black's position is so good he could have still drawn the game even after the loss of the Q.|

The television camera showed a dejected Kasparov remaining seated at the board with his head in his hands for a long time. Until Spassky tapped his shoulder and offered him a drink. The Icelandic media passed it off as apple juice, but those in the know were aware that it was whisky from the Hospitality Suite. It was a nice gesture of Spassky but Kasparov, who never touches alcohol during a tournament, let this cup pass from him.
|May-20-15|| ||ToTheDeath: This is how you beat Kasparov's Sicilian- you take the fight to him and hope he makes a mistake. In his career he played over a hundred games in the Najdorf and only lost a dozen or so, so defeating him here must have felt pretty great.|
|Mar-29-17|| ||keithbc: The tournament book of the world cup states that even after losing his queen, Kasparov could have forced a draw.... I (nor my machine) can see anything remotely looking like holding this game after the queen blunder.|
|Mar-29-17|| ||Olavi: 37...Nd3 38.Rxd3 Bxd3 39.Rf8 Rxf8 40.Qxg5 Rc2 was suggested.|

|Oct-10-17|| ||Clement Fraud: <Whitehat1963> I think that black resigned here simply because of his material deficit (incurred from having blundered the Queen eight moves earlier)... perhaps?|

Count the queens.
(Actually, as pointed out below, apparently GK had chances even after his big blunder, but by the final position it's quite hopeless. SF suggests 44.Rf2 Nxg2 45.Bxf4 Nxf4 46.Rxf4, etc.)
