Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-10-03  Benjamin Lau: An interesting game against a much earlier version of Fritz in which positional sacrifices abound.
Jul-28-04  chess4games: I can see that Fritz made some bad moves. Good game. Interesting.
Oct-16-05  weisyschwarz: Interesting. In the first 20 moves or so Kasparov plays like a new computer program, and Fritz plays very bookish. I wonder what Kasparov can say about playing against computers.
Nov-24-05  yoshi927: 50... Qg2? was a weak move. (51 d8=Q |Qxg4? 52 Be5 Qc8! 53 a6+! Kxa6|53...Ka8?? 54 Qxc8#| 54 Qxc8+ 1-0|51...Qa2+ 52 Kg7 Qxh2 53 Bg3+! Ka6 Be2#)
Nov-24-05  yoshi927: **Be2# is move 54, sorry.
Dec-12-05  yoshi927: Oh... that last move sucks. But I still think the rest of the line might work...
Dec-12-05  VinnyRoo2002: Does anybody else feel like Fritz should have won this game? I think Fritz could have better utilized their queen.
Feb-13-06  McCool: 33 ..♘xe4+?? what was Fritz on?
Mar-28-06  blingice: 24. Qxc5

*Sound of Fritz shorting out*

Apr-04-06  ClubplayerGOLD: Looks like it was on the fritz:)
Sep-14-06  johnnyfroaction: <33 ..Nxe4+?? what was Fritz on?> if i made that move, which trades a rook and night for two rooks and a pawn i would be pretty proud. i would have also missed that D pawn though, but, i am not a computer either.
Nov-13-06  Ch3ckmate: kasparov knew how a computer would play and i dont think this game was a problem for him.
Feb-22-08  sallom89: last comment at 2006 ;o
still the game is/was nice by a queen sac.
Jun-12-08  jeeky1996: Fritz would have immediately captured the queen, as maybe Fritz thought that this was an immediate advantage to him
Feb-04-09  WhiteRook48: best Q sac I've seen in a long time

  Honza Cervenka: It was a blitz game. I guess that in different format of play Gazza would not have miss such a opportunity like 21.Rxb7+! Kxb7 22.Ba6+ Ka8 23.Bb5 Kb7 (23...dxe3+ 24.Bxe3 ) 24.Qa6+ Kb8 25.Bxc6 etc.

  Honza Cervenka: Why not 23.Nc2 simply winning the pinned Knight?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: 26...Nd6?? was a howler putting the Knight into deadly pin. Instead of 27.Be5 it was better to play 27.Bf6 Rc8 28.e5 winning additional piece with decisive advantage. Of course, 26...Qc8 or Qc7 was correct.

  Honza Cervenka: <McCool: 33 ..♘xe4+?? what was Fritz on?> I guess he was on the right track to draw. 40...Qe6+?? was wrong check and decisive mistake here. After 40...Qf1+ black has at least perpetual as white King cannot escape from checks without loss of unprotected Pd7.
