Mar-24-05  csmath: Awesome game by Gazza. He immediately noticed the error of Ljubojevic 22. R1d2 leaving first rank unprotected and with manouvre Bb5-Rb8-Bc4 the game is decided in 25 moves.

Awesome attacker, no room for errors against him.

Mar-30-06  notyetagm: <csmath> Great plan by Kasparov, that 22 ... ♗b5, 23 ... ♖ab8, 24 ... ♗c4!.

It's not a checking/mating focal point on the back rank that 22 ♖1d2? weakened, it's the b1-promotion square! Now the only thing stopping Black from promoting his b2-pawn is the White b1-king, by <blockading> the passed Black b-pawn. And since the White king is <blockading> the b2-pawn, it cannot also <defend> the a2-pawn/square.

Black sets up the tactical idea of a mate in 4 along the lines of ... ♗xa2+! ♔xa2 b1=♕+ ♔a3 ♕b2+ ♔a4 ♕b4#.

  HeMateMe: It was twenty years ago today/Garry taught the 'Lube' to play/It's been going in and out of style/But the Najdorf always brings a smile!

So let me introduce to you!/Bak-you you've known for all these years/Gaza and his Queenside PLAAAAAYY!

Apr-09-12  screwdriver: Once the endgame came into play, it was dominated by Kasparov.
