  Jim Bartle: 31...Ne7 is suicidal. I read that Kasparov was close to laughing out loud as he played the last two moves. Bareev had a disastrous tournament overall, drawing 6 and losing 8 without a win. He recovered nicely in later years, though...
Apr-10-04  Bobsterman3000: Ouch. 33 rxe7 is brutal. Excellent use of the long diagonals.
Jan-17-05  filipecea: The point here is that Black is clearly lost after 33...Qxe7 (trying to regain material) as it is met by 34.Qxc6+ Kb8 35.Bg3+ and Black's king has no escaping chances anymore (35...Rd6 36.Bxd6 Qxd6 37.Qb7#)

And I think that the blunder was 32...b6 and not 31...Ne7.

Instead of 32...b6 Black must get into some more active lines like 32...b5 33.Qa5 Rd7 34.c4 Bd3 35.Bxd3 Qxd3 and Black is just fine

  keypusher: The position around move 26 is a little reminiscent of Rubinstein vs Hromadka, 1923, though Kasparov puts his bishop rather than his queen on b6.

<I read that Kasparov was close to laughing out loud as he played the last two moves.>

Such a gentleman!

Maybe. But I have a feeling Kasparov would have something to say about that. lol

Aug-08-12  Cibator: Tragic Bareev-munt*.

*UK slang, meaning a wreck, or to wreck (usually found in the form "munted".
