|Apr-26-08|| ||percyblakeney: The last decisive game between the two (not counting rapid/blitz). At the time the rating difference had grown quite big with Kasparov at 2849 and Karpov at 2679.|
|Dec-19-08|| ||Iron Chess: Garry Kasparov has left a great legacy for us all.|
|Jun-12-09|| ||totololo: In his comments to one of his game he mentionned that the first 30 moves they followed a previous a game and the real new moves were only 2 .... Dorfman- Kasparov - Botvinnik system.
So, I am not surprised if Kasparov knew the whole analysis by heart . What impress me is the level of the novelties and I think that his support team found most of them.... he had no time ... but he verified everything.... and memorized.|
|Jun-12-09|| ||Riverbeast: Kasparov LOVED kicking Karpov's culo, didn't he?|
|Aug-16-09|| ||Richard Taylor: I don't think there was much between Karpov and Kasparov. |
As a younger man Karpov was probably even better than Kasparov.
Kasparov nearly lost the first long match and then he played so many games against him that he learnt from Karpov...but by then Karpov was getting on in years so the younger man one as is usual. And I think Karpov stopped caring so much - after all he had been the world champion and won so many major tournaments - much as he loves to play chess still.
And also Kasparov had a better team and facilities.
This is not to deny Kasparov's greatness.
|Oct-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: they did that for Leko-Kramnik too!|
|Nov-05-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Tal once was able to kick Karpov this way|
|Nov-05-09|| ||Shams: <And also Kasparov had a better team and facilities.>|
Yes, it's well known that the Soviet Establishment favored Kasparov, the outspoken Armenian Jew, over the "outsider" Karpov.
|Nov-01-10|| ||Elsinore: I think Karpov did miss 24. Nd4. Why? Because after Karpov plays 24. Rd7, Kasparov played 25. c3, which protects against Nd4. Nc7, Bxd5, Rxd5 was a nice Queen trap by Kasparov, though.|
|Nov-17-10|| ||sevenseaman: < whiteshark> I agree entirely.|
Kasparov was indeed an outstanding Champion gamewise. He has my total respect for the chess he played, but zero as a person. He concentrated rather cheaply on destroying the morale and dignity of his opponent in order to undermine his playing prowess and self-belief. Karpov and Anand were big time sufferers. There may have been others.
I would say his conduct and demeanor towards his opponent was as unethical as I have seen. Making faces, gestures, uncalled for body language - I remember him banging the door real hard on Anand after making a winning move in a Championship match; terrible.
No self-respecting person, let alone a World Champion should indulge in such underhand, creepy, unethical conduct.
There are more important human values than just winning. That is why I often equate him with Michael Schumacher of F1.
|Nov-17-10|| ||Reisswolf: Was 16. Nd6+ playable? Did Kasparov disregard it because he felt Karpov's rook was already well placed on the semi-open h-file?|
|Jan-13-11|| ||YCP: What happens after 23. Nd7?|
|Apr-06-11|| ||Oginschile: 23... Nd7 24. Rh5 Rxh5 25. Qxh5 Bf6 26. Bd6+ is a possible line. There is some work left to do, but there is no doubting Kaspy wins this position against even the strongest computers.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||SMCB1997: Brilliant game from Kasparov, really enjoyed studying it, as the Caro Kann is a complicated opening.|
|Aug-26-11|| ||Tigranny: Why can't the Caro-Kann can?|
|Oct-03-11|| ||serenpidity.ejd: This game is entitled: HOW TO MAKE THE OPPONENT'S QUEEN DISAPPEAR.|
Inspiring and interesting game clap! clap!clap!
|Oct-03-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: <Karpov and Anand were big time sufferers.>|
Since when did Anatoly Karpov suffer about anything?
