|Jan-29-09|| ||VaselineTopLove: <This is supposedly the 11th best game ever in the history of chess>|
Who according to and which are the top 10?
|Jan-29-09|| ||Ychromosome: Wow is <furrer> correct that this is the only black win in classical time control between Kasparov and Kramnik?? I going to try to find out; anyone else want to weigh in?|
|Jan-29-09|| ||acirce: It is correct.|
|Jan-29-09|| ||whiteshark: It seems so.|
|Jan-29-09|| ||Ychromosome: That's amazing...
|Jan-29-09|| ||ILikeFruits: the best game...
of all time...
and is still...
and waged is...
the game bet...
ween good and evil...
pawns says the...
|Jan-30-09|| ||furrer: Thank you Acirce - Im impressed... Kramnik was and is great, I actually like his style even though he draws so often.|
|Dec-03-09|| ||Everett: Actually, Kasparov's loses as white in classical were always very few and far between, so any one of those games are special.|
|Aug-19-10|| ||fetonzio: wow kasparov took a beating|
|Oct-28-10|| ||AuN1: what kasparov would have given to have his light squared bishop...|
|Jul-19-11|| ||furrer: <Everett>
And the same is true with Kramniks wins ;)
|Aug-30-11|| ||DrMAL: In this version of the Meran 13.dxe6 or 13.Qe2 is usually played, 13.Nd4 was a new sharper move then, recently played by Magnus Carlsen vs Shirov, 2011 where Shirov played 13...e5 instead. 14.b4 is unique in the CG database, it looked like an interesting way to open the center. |
After 19...Qxf7?! (instead of 19...Kxf7 to "castle by hand") the knight sac with 21...O-O?! was not fully compensated but then with 22...Qh3?! instead of 22...Qe5 it was nearly decisive. Kasparov missed 23.Qe2! to fully defend and hence probably win, instead he played 23.Nf3?! to poorly defend. Then 24.Nc5?! instead of 24.Qe2 or 24.Ra2 to defend the h-pawn gave black some advantage after the exchange sac 24...Rxf3! Here Kasparov played probably losing move by taking back 25.Rxf3?! simply 25.Ra2 would have likely held a draw.
27.Bg5? lost faster Kramnik started playing best moves but after 29.Ra2?? Kramnik missed a mate in 4 (29...Bxd3+ 30.Rxd3 Qh1+ 31.Ke2 Qg2+ 32.Ke3 Rxe4#) but 29...Qh1+ right away was good enough. Terrible game from Kasparov his bungling of simple tactics makes this one of his worst games (particularly as WC!).
|Nov-08-11|| ||refutor: didn't see kasparov get beat like this very often, particularly in 1996!|
|Feb-14-12|| ||ColdSong: Simply horribly outplayed between the opening and the middlegame.Pathetic,especially for the best prepared player ever.|
|May-13-12|| ||screwdriver: Well, at least it's easy to see the game is definately over at the time Kasparov resigned. Is Kasparov considered the best player ever?|
|May-29-12|| ||Suryanshu: at move 25 ... d perfect answer should have been Ra2 and not Rxf3 (Rybka)
i guess Kasparov paid d price for being too hungry ...|
d material at this point was equal and d game would have progressed fr a draw.
|Nov-23-12|| ||Conrad93: Kasparov was winning in the middle game, but blundered. It had nothing to do with Kramnik outplaying him.|
He;s not in the same league.
|Nov-23-12|| ||Conrad93: Kramnik missed a simple mate in four. How lame!|
|Nov-23-12|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: "Having seen a forced win, I did not even bother to look for anything better (especially since I had little time left). Meanwhile it would have been better to conclude the game with...mate in four moves" (Kramnik - My Life and Games.) |
This game won the best game award in Informator 67 with 87/90 points. The second best game (also a Kramnik game) received 55/90 points.
btw, at no point was Kasparov winning. 23. Nf3? instead 23. Ra2 Be4 24. Re1 Bb7! 25. Qd3! ; and 24.Nc5? instead 24. Qe2! holds the balance.
This game was Kasparov's first loss with white since 1986.
|Nov-23-12|| ||Conrad93: 23.Qe2 wins.|
|Mar-25-13|| ||Conrad93: To be fair, Kasparov played terribly right from the opening...|
Not his best chess.
|Mar-25-13|| ||Jim Bartle: <Conrad93: 23.Qe2 wins.
Conrad93: To be fair, Kasparov played terribly right from the opening...>
How did he play terribly right from the opening yet have a winning position after move 22?
|Mar-25-13|| ||Conrad93: <How did he play terribly right from the opening yet have a winning position after move 22?>|
Ah, I see a dreamer...
|Mar-25-13|| ||Jim Bartle: Well, conrad, there's an obvious contradiction between your two posts.|
|Mar-26-13|| ||Conrad93: That tends to happen a lot.|
