|Sep-04-05|| ||Nezhmetdinov: anyone with a fritz tell me exactly what occurs after 30 gxh5 e3 31 Be1 ? I'm missing it|
|Sep-04-05|| ||samvega: I think 31..Qg5. Then black only has to clear the bishop from g7 to deliver mate at either g1 or g2.|
It won't be enough for white to clear the e1 bishop from the first rank, there is still a mate at g2. Moving the other bishop to f1 to guard g2 only re-obstructs the first rank.
|Sep-04-05|| ||who: That's what Fritz says as well (it just takes it a little time to figure that out).|
|Sep-04-05|| ||samvega: Careful, some people have hissy fits if you quote Fritz :).|
|Sep-05-05|| ||who: In my defense he did ask for a Fritz analysis.|
|Sep-05-05|| ||samvega: No defence required, my friend. Perhaps you missed the little diatribe on the Moro - Polgar game -- just as well.|
|Sep-05-05|| ||tamar: <samvega> I thought the Moro-Polgar exchange was more like a conniption fit :-) I have the same problem btw/ maybe I should tack "joke" at the end of some of my posts.|
|Sep-05-05|| ||RookFile: Aww, too bad, if white's pawn were on
h3, the finish could be:
56. Rxa1 Rxa1 57. d8 = Q f1 = N+
and mate follows. But 58. Kh3 is
a good answer here, you you have to promote to a queen.

indeed I would have done better never having looked there.
|May-04-09|| ||Lyink: Nice finish: 56. Rxa1 Rxa1 57. d8=Q Rh1+ 58.Kxh1 f1=Q 59. Kh2 Qg2#|

And some can't get along without their engine.
Kasparov comes up with a nice idea here in 29...e4, but the instructive part of the game is how he gets rid of the dark squared bishop, the one piece that's active for White. Then White is forced into an endgame where he has no chance with all of his weaknesses.
|Jan-05-12|| ||indoknight: after 30.gxh5 e3 31.Be1 Qg5! not only attacking g1 and g2 ! this move threatening rook at 32...Rb8 too!|
|Mar-25-12|| ||Robyn Hode: And Korchnoi has been so disparaging of the KID and of Kasparov employing it. Yet Korch never beat Kaspy's KID.|
|Jan-13-16|| ||Joker2048: Amazing finish by the master of endgame Mr. Kasparov.|
