|Oct-12-04|| ||shr0pshire: Yasser annotates this game after several analyses with Kasparov. |
|Oct-12-04|| ||shr0pshire: Don't miss Seirawin's analysis, one of the best anotated games I have seen. |
|Apr-11-05|| ||Sbetsho: err.. it says:
Kortchnoi - Timman, Brussels 1988
|Jan-13-06|| ||Caissanist: It looks like Yasser writes a monthly column on that site, and the link above link is to the current column. Here's the link to his annotations for this particular game:|
|Jan-20-08|| ||notyetagm: Position after 23 ... c5-c4??

<Instead, he uncorked a strategic howler of major proportions.
When making this move, Garry literally screwed the pawn into the c4-square, then he rubbed the pawn on the square hard enough to rock the
table. I was so delighted by this move and its accompanying motions that
I couldn’t repress a smile. I wanted to tip-toe around the board; give Garry a peck on the cheek, let out a small, “thank you,” and then tip-toe back. The TV cameras were too intimidating. (The event was broadcast to fifteen nations.) When I told Garry later, he burst into laughter (“I deserve
it!” he exclaimed.)
Review my summation after the last diagram. <In an instant, my rooks
know where to play. The knight on e2 is offered the d4-square, while my
queen is unleashed on the g1-a7 diagonal. Stunned by the new-found
promise my position offered, I spent several minutes readjusting my
thoughts. I was going to win this game!>>
|Dec-02-13|| ||morfishine: Could Black improve with 16...b6?

Black is fully deployed and ready for maximum activity: For example, after 17.axb6 Qxb6 Black enjoys the best of both worlds: His Queen plays on both sides of the board, being able to return to d8 at his leisure: an unusual side line in a KI defense
|Dec-13-13|| ||Howard: Not only does Seirawan give updated analysis to this game in his tremendous book Chess Duels, but Kasparov also gives fresh notes in his latest book, on his career from 1986-1993.|
If I recall correctly, Kasparov seriously questions Yasser's 31st and 36th moves......despite Yasser giving an exclam to his 31st one.
|Jan-18-14|| ||Doniez: What could it be after 43...Bd4???|
|Jan-18-14|| ||beatgiant: <Doniez> 43...Bd4 44. Nxd3 Bxf2+ 45. Nxf2 and White wins a piece.|
|Jan-18-14|| ||Doniez: <beatgiant> thanks|
|Jan-18-14|| ||morfishine: An epic struggle with off-the-chart complications. I used to have a copy of an old, out of print chess magazine (circa 1990) that had the full analysis, annotations, interviews, and conversations. Maybe its still lying around somewhere. The entire article is 7-8 pages.|
I remember working through some of the variations, which was tedious and time-consuming in the extreme, when I thought "Geez, this is too much, I'm going to go play golf"
|Jan-18-14|| ||offramp: Good game.
The identical pun was used as recently as 4 months ago for V Kovacevic vs Seirawan, 1980.
I thought it sounded familiar!
|Jan-18-14|| ||naufallabs: Why not bd4 for black to attack white queen|
|Jan-18-14|| ||dumbgai: Today's pun reminds me of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rJT...|
|Jan-23-14|| ||kevin86: To hold Kasparov to a draw is a BIG thing!|
|May-18-14|| ||goldenbear: h5 is a strategic blunder in many variations of the Averbakh, but here it is an excellent idea, since Black needs to find good developing moves that keep Bxh3 in reply to Nh3. For example, if 11.Nbd7, then Nh3-f2, and White is much better. 11.Kh7 is too passive -- 12.g4! To me, Kasparov's 11.h5!, while it looks like a committing move, is actually an example of Alekhine's idea of non-commitment.|
|Jun-06-14|| ||RookFile: Strange game, you would think that white needs to read some Fred Reinfeld books, with all the queen moves he made, but somehow he holds it together.|
|Oct-29-15|| ||Alex Schindler: This is definitely not the sort of game you just click through. I almost wish I didn't know the result in advance - the complications justify considerable suspense.|
|Dec-23-16|| ||Howard: According to Kasparov, 36.gxh3 would have won for Yasser.|
|Dec-23-16|| ||Howard: Frankly, I'm surprised that this complex game hasn't received more attention on this website. Yasser devoted several pages to it in Inside Chess magazine, plus he gave some updated analysis to it in Chess Duels.|
On top of that, it even made GOTD.
