and this is the game Kasparov lost to Piket
Jeroen Piket vs Kasparov, 1995
|Feb-10-05|| ||BadTemper: No queen moves. Ridiculous. Kasparov is nuts. |
|Feb-10-05|| ||chesscookie: Wow. He never touched his queen. What a genius. |
|Mar-28-06|| ||TylerD: Today "GM" is synonymous to "Computer nerd", or, if one is so inclined, "master of data".
This is just too bad.
The soul and beauty of the game lies somewhere else, lacking from "GM games" of these computerdays...
But maybe, someday, the ghost of Lasker
will return - and the game will live once more.
Anderssen, Morphy, Zukertort, Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca,Aljechin... I hope there is another dimension than the one we all roam - a parallell place where these immortals can garantuee the same immortality to the game itself.
I hope there is still a player that is truly ALIVE somewhere.
Someone PLAYING the game. Someone LIVING the fight, instead of just rottening in front of a screen... Someone playing The Royal Game, not just memory.
Just for the fun of it (against all reasoning) I will try to believe Fischer´s words, the ones about Morphy embarassing any modern GM within 20 moves.
|Aug-30-06|| ||ToTheDeath: There is still plenty of originality in chess. Morozevich, Topalov, Polgar- they have all played beautiful masterpieces.|
Fischer's assertion about Morphy doesn't even pass the laugh test. Fischer also thinks the Jews who control the world are after him. Come to think of it Morphy also spent his later years in misery and dementia. Not a good role model chief.
|Aug-31-06|| ||chancho: Hilarious. Gazza beats Topalov and never moves his Queen in the entire game.|
|Sep-05-06|| ||russep: what a game. I guess this is why Kasparov is a sicilian expert.|
|Feb-06-07|| ||BadTemper: I still don't understand why there is little chatter about this game. For heck's sake, his queen never moved.|
|Jul-26-07|| ||Kleve: Could someone explain the final position?|
|Jul-31-07|| ||WarmasterKron: <Kleve> When the queen moves, Rxh3.|
|Nov-04-07|| ||sallom89: crazy! no queen moves against a GM , he gotta feel impressed.|
|Apr-15-09|| ||MethodMan: This was revenge. Topalov beat him in their first meeting. I think Kasparov made a point of asserting his dominance because that left a sour taste in his mouth. In the end Kasparov definitly came out on top.|
|Jun-22-12|| ||fisayo123: Unbelievable game by Kaspy!|
