|Sep-22-04|| ||nullandvoid: This is an obscure loss by Kasparov, and it is amazing how an unknown player makes defeating Kasparov look so easy. Finding the losing move is difficult. |
|Sep-22-04|| ||Knezh: Well, the manoever 16. ..Qa5-a3 turns out to be dubious. |

|May-22-09|| ||WhiteRook48: What!!|
|May-22-09|| ||Bobsterman3000: huh?
Was this a simul?
|Feb-11-12|| ||ColdSong: GK played classic games for the french club of Auxerre one year, in 1994, if I remember well,and had some poor results, this game, a difficult draw with Pinter, some other wins I suppose,all that for, impressive detail,at least for the young player I was, about 5 000 euros for a single game,if one more time I remember well.|
|Feb-11-12|| ||Shams: Confusing. White is apparently a GM, although his last rating according to the site is 2088. Also, has anyone ever heard of him?|
|Feb-11-12|| ||alexmagnus: There are two players named Alexander Shneider. One is a Russian, born 1948, with a last rating of 2088. The other one (FIDE writes him as Aleksandr Shneider) is a Ukrainian GM, born 1962 and rated currently 2529.|
|Feb-11-12|| ||Shams: <alexmagnus> I see. This is the GM here, I take it?|
|Feb-11-12|| ||alexmagnus: I guess yes. Kasparov lost to some 2500s but I think if he lost to a 2000-2100 it would be memorized forever :)|
|Feb-11-12|| ||Shams: Yeah, unless it was a simul.
Although...late in his career he blundered horribly and lost to a mere FM, didn't he? Some guy nobody had heard of.
|Feb-11-12|| ||acirce: Not in a serious game, no. Maybe you're thinking of Huzman vs Kasparov, 2003 but Huzman was a 2574 GM.|
|Feb-11-12|| ||AlphaMale: He lost an odds game to Terry Chapman, who was rated ~2200 but is not an FM:|
T Chapman vs Kasparov, 2001
|Feb-11-12|| ||Shams: <acirce> I could have sworn he lost to at least an IM or below but I'm sure you're right.|
|Feb-11-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: Gazza lost to Matthias Wahls in 1985 clock simul against Hamburger SK. Wahls later became GM but in 1985 he was not yet even IM.|
|May-22-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: GG
Note that if 39...Rxd2 40. Rxd2 and Black is forced to sacrifice his R for the enterprising a-pawn as White's LSB controls a8!
|May-22-12|| ||King Death: I sure don't know why I <LostThatJoker> because my rating would be at least 200 points higher if I got to see every single one of his bits of "wisdom". Even a beginning player can see what he's explained to us.|
|Mar-30-13|| ||tpstar: Great game by White, defeating Kasparov in his prime. White seemed to lose time with his Queen in the opening but this did not prove harmful. I suspect Black's game was strategically lost after trading Queens, then White's Remove the Guard motif 33. Bg5 Bf6 34. Bxf6 Nxf6 35. Rxd6 winning a Pawn was decisive.|
