|Jul-28-14|| ||perfidious: <shintaro go: Kasparov was @#$%* smashed in this game. Good job Judit>|
'Fore you lose your head, it should be borne in mind that this was Polgar's <only> win against Kasparov in her career.
|Jul-28-14|| ||shintaro go: So what? It doesnt change the fact that kasparov got shamed|
|Jul-28-14|| ||perfidious: Your posts don't change the fact that Kasparov owned Judit, same as most everyone else he faced during his brilliant career.|
Meanwhile, you are reduced to denigrating a top player whose jockstrap you couldn't carry in ten lifetimes.
|Jul-28-14|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<perfidious>
there is a certain schadenfreude in this game, though.
After bashing his head v. the Berlin (and Kramnik), Garry drops the Najdorf or Scheveningen for it and gets gubbed! It justs add a certain poetry to the Berlin Wall story.

I wasn't aware chess players wore jock straps, and apparently a really heavy one, or does GK play rugby on the side?
|Jan-02-15|| ||Martin Riggs: Whoa, whoa Judit... [;
Great game & all the best for 2015! :]
|Jan-25-15|| ||Severin: Garry Kasparov beat Judit Polgar 12 to 1, with 4 draws.|
|Jun-24-15|| ||Alex Schindler: Bizarre opening for a much higher-rated player with a markedly aggressive style. Did he have a notion that endgames are her weakness or something? There had to be some background strategy here, involving a poor assessment of his opponent's strengths, because this opening certainly doesn't let Kasparov play to his own unparalleled strengths.|
I can't explain the decision based on her own tremendous attacking prowess. It seems extremely unlikely that Kasparov was afraid to go toe-to-toe with her (or anyone else) in a tactical melee. At least from his public statements, he didn't even think much of her chess at the time. I really wish I could understand what he was hoping to get out of this opening.
|Jun-24-15|| ||tamar: My theory is that Kasparov simply did not believe Polgar could find a plan for breaching the Berlin that had eluded him all through the 2000 match.|
Could she in one shot do better than what cost him months of analytical torture?
He undoubtedly had an improvement against his own plan with b3 and the tactics with e6 which he won with at Astana, but Polgar played her own way, when Garry became nervous defending a passive position.
|Jul-22-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: Kasparov got his ego checked here, but I imagine the Polgar sisters are used it.|
Odd sideline in the Berlin Defense.
|Aug-05-15|| ||PJs Studio: You guys read too much into it. Kasparov may just have felt like trying the Berlin. Maybe he was tired. Maybe he assumed a quick draw. Maybe just trying to throw her off but wasn't ready for the black side as well as he thought he would be. |
I do know GM Polgar is very tough on the white side of the Sicilian.
|Aug-05-15|| ||Nerwal: Several factors for this opening choice I think. He had already tried before to play more solid lines against Judit, both as White and Black. He had already tried the Berlin against Milos at the Eurotel Trophy and won. As a whole, in his last years of play Kasparov started to use more solid openings against 1. d4 as Black so maybe he thought he could do that against 1. e4 as well; playing nothing but the sicilian can be risky and exhausting, and then you may have to waste your preparation just to win rapid games...|
|Aug-10-15|| ||PJs Studio: Great points Nerwal|
|Aug-22-15|| ||gnagoul: first J.P's game|
|Oct-10-15|| ||The Kings Domain: Unless Kasparov let her win, it's good to see she eked out a win after all those losses through the years.|
|Oct-11-15|| ||Psihadal: <The Kings Domain: Unless Kasparov let her win...>|
Yeah, i don't think so.
And this is Kasparov after all.

|Apr-27-16|| ||TheFocus: This was a nice win against Kasparov. Never saw it before.|
|May-07-16|| ||Ironmanth: Was there any more play for Black with checks, despite losing the Queen side pawns?! Offhand, it looks like a tricky fight. What am I missing?! Thanks!|
|Jun-18-16|| ||MariusDaniel: Very nice game of chess!|
|Jul-02-16|| ||kishore4u: Nice win against kasparov!|
|Apr-17-18|| ||anjumskhan: So, conclusion is "Even the great Garry can't play Ruy Lopez as black".|
|Apr-17-18|| ||widjaja70: https://www.chess.com/blog/love_rom...|
Judit must have won against Kasparov in 1994, 8 years before this game !
|Jul-23-18|| ||PJs Studio: Polgár was no slouch. It was bound to happen that he would lost a game to any top ten player. |
