Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-28-02  knight: 32.d5!! the move of the tournament.
Jan-09-03  evertoexcel: Indeed, 32. d5 is outstanding
Jul-08-04  tomh72000: A nice novelty (18.Ra2) by Garry too.
Feb-06-06  GlennOliver: 32.d5! Bxc5!?
Jun-22-06  LIFE Master AJ: I wonder ... does Rybka find 32.d5!! - as in this game? (My Fritz 9.0 did not, even after a couple of minutes 'thinking' time.)
Jun-22-06  Jilted Rook: 32.d5 is more worthy of !?

In the same way that one shouldn't revere computer analysis one shouldn't get one's prayer mat out for a bold move by Kasparov. Much better was the calm with a probable draw.

Nevertheless d5 is an enterprising and practical OTB choice, all the more so for Micky calling Kasparov's bluff...

Jun-22-06  euripides: what does Black play after <> 33 c6 ?
Jun-22-06  Jilted Rook: 33...Na5
Jun-23-06  blingice: <Jilted Rook> This is probably ultra-ignorant, but what does your notation of "" mean?
Jun-23-06  Jilted Rook: <blingice:> 32...c6xd5
Jun-23-06  HannibalSchlecter: Jilted Rook, after doesn't white still get the dangerous passed pawn though with 33. c6
Jun-23-06  Jilted Rook: <Hannibal> see above 33...Na5
Jun-23-06  HannibalSchlecter: Jilted Rook, sorry about that, missed the prior note. Ok 33. Na5 34 Bd7!
Jun-23-06  HannibalSchlecter: on second thought I don't like it after 34Nxc6! followed by Rc8
Oct-13-07  notyetagm: Game Collection: Bishop pair + passed pawn = UNSTOPPABLE(!)

After 48 ♗d8 1-0

The result is not pretty obvious to me!

What allows to say that the game is over ?

Material advantage is not huge for White 1 ♗ against ♙♙ and I do not see the follow-on which would permit a White Pawn to queen...

Npt obvious !!

Nov-01-08  gambitfan: That is a BISHOP ENDGAME : ♗♗ + ♙♙ // ♗ + ♙♙♙♙

The material advantage for the stronger side is 1.25 point (♗ // ♙♙)

47... a4 48 ♗xa4

47... b5 48 ♗xb5 ♗b4 to protect ♙a5 49 ♗e8 to look after ♔h6 White King comes along the white f1-a6 diagonal to take ♙a5 which cant move !

47... f4 48 ♔d3 ... Nothing can prevent White King from reaching f5 to take ♙g5

47... g4 48 h3xg4 f5xg4 49 f3xg4 ♔g5 50 ♔f3 the only remaining White Pawn remains on the white square g4 and cannot therefore be bothered by the dark coloured Black Bishop...

♔h6 cannot move without leaving the protection of ♙g5

47... ♔h7, ♔g7 48 ♗xg5

47... ♗d4, ♗g1 .... what cant prevent white ♔ing to walk on the white squares e2-d3-c4-d5, then e5-f5 and then take ♙g5 with ♗d8

Aug-21-17  Toribio3: In chess, you can distinguish the quality of Russian grand master and English grand master in their manner of executing chess tactics. Russian are natural while the English are trying hard, correct me if I'm wrong. Let us debate?
Aug-21-17  WorstPlayerEver: I guess it depends on the GM. As long as guys like Karjakin miss a winning continuation at move 4 against Kasparov, I would keep my mouth shut if I were a Russian.
