|Nov-14-03|| ||northernsoul: Tim Krabbé wrote an interesting article about this game and Kasparov's reaction to the defeat|
|Nov-14-03|| ||Eggman: Quite interesting. Thanks, NS. |
|Nov-14-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: I hate to repeat what someone has said before, but that was a VERY interesting article. |
|Nov-14-03|| ||northernsoul: here's the win against Topalov that Krabbé also mentions|
Topalov vs Kasparov, 1995
|Apr-16-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: <...He seems to have forgotten me, doesn't speak a word to me, except for one moment in the middle of a square when he stops me and says: 'f6. It draws, maybe. f6, instead of h5.'...>|
36...f6 draws after 37.Qe1 Qb8 38.Ne6+ Rxe6 39.Qxe6 Qxf4+, but what about 38.Kg3 g5 39.Kg4? Then 39...Qxf4+ 40.Kh5 looks bad for black as well as 39...f5+ 40.Kh5 or 39...Rd6 40.Qe4.
|Feb-09-05|| ||BadTemper: HOLYCRAPIZOLA! Garry never moved his queen the whole game!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't get it... Omfg! Im flipping out! |
|Feb-09-05|| ||chessdr: Final position, what wins after 41. ... Rc6 or g6?
I think I've got all the low-hanging fruit. Black is almost in zugzwang: (I) 41. ... Qe7 42. Qh8#. (II) 41. ... Kg8 42. Qe8+ etc. (III) 41. ... Rb5 (or b4 or b1) 42. Qh8+ Ke7 43. Qf6+ wins the queen. (IV) 41. ... Rb8 42. Qh8+ Ke7 43. Qf6+ Kf8 44. Ne6+ Kg8 45. Qg7#. (V) 41. ... Qb8 42. Qxb8+ Rxb8 43. Nb7 Ke7 44. d8=Q+ Rxd8 45. Nxd8 Kxd8 46. g3 with an easy win. (VI) 41. ... f6 42. gxf6 Rxf6 (42. ... Kf7 43. Qh5+ and black will lose his queen) 43. Nb7 and black has no reasonable move.
But what about Rg6 or c6? Beware, black has hope for a draw if he can check by Qb8.
|Feb-09-05|| ||BadTemper: No comment on 0 queen moves??? Is there any other master level game with 15+ moves without one side using the Queen? |
|Feb-09-05|| ||euripides: <bad tempper> yes, the game against Topalov cited above. |
|Apr-14-05|| ||aw1988: In the final position, would Re6 draw? |
|Apr-14-05|| ||hintza: <aw1988> 41...Re6?? 42.Nxe6 fxe6 43.Qf6+ is clearly winning for White. Did you mean a different rook move, like 41...Rg6 or something? |
|Apr-14-05|| ||aw1988: No, I meant Re6, but I didn't look at Qf6+, only Qxe6 Qxg5. |
|Apr-14-05|| ||hintza: <aw1988> Oh right, Qf6+ kills really. Definitely though there are a couple of other rook moves that are worth a look. |
|Aug-25-06|| ||KOCCMOHAYT: kasparov's queen even can sometimes be a pathetic creature!?|
|Jun-27-08|| ||whiteshark: <19.Na4> was a new move. In Karpov vs Kasparov, 1987, White allowed <19.a3 Nd3!>|
The modest <19...Nxa4 20.Qxa4 Nc6> was stronger.

|Jun-21-12|| ||achieve: A Walk with Garry Kasparov, is arguably one of the best anecdotes/articles I have ever read.|
|Apr-06-17|| ||celsochini: <northernsoul> nice tip about the article! Thank you!|
|Apr-06-17|| ||whiteshark: "The final position of Piket - Kasparov is still on one of the demonstration boards and suddenly I realise Kasparov's queen is still on d8 - <and has never moved in all of the 41 moves of that game.>"|

|Aug-16-18|| ||NBZ: Wonderful article indeed. It's a very short read and yet I came away feeling that I had been able to glimpse into the soul of Kasparov.|
