|Sep-10-02|| ||Sneaky: 26. Qe8+ Rf8 27. Qxf8+ Kxf8 28. Ne5+ Kg8 29. Nxg5 gxh2+ 30. Kxh2 hxg5|
and White emerges up the exchange, and ahead one pawn. But whats more he then has 31. Bf6! (move courtesy of MacChess) which seems to win another piece in all variations: ...Ba5 32. Ne7+ Nxe7 33. dxe7 Kf7 (forced) 34. Ba3+ Kxe7 35. Bxa5
Although this is 100% winning, did Kasparov really resign so early? I'd at least wait for the guy to play QxR before throwing in the towel...
|Sep-10-02|| ||bishop: 21...Rg7 stepping into a pin can probably be improved upon. |
|May-10-03|| ||Elrathia Kingi: Would 25...Qxd6 have saved Kasparov? |
|May-12-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Of course, 25...Qxd6 was better but after 26.Ne5 Nxe5 27.Bxe5 Qd7 28.gxf4 white should win the game too. |
|Nov-01-03|| ||refutor: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... how many other players have a plus score v. kasparov over their careers? |
|Nov-01-03|| ||Eggman: <how many other players have a plus score v. kasparov over their careers?>|
Lautier? I know he lost twice to Kasparov at the 2002 Moscow Gran Prix, but was that classical chess? If not, then Lautier is probably one such player.
|Nov-02-03|| ||Open Defence: Boris Gulko has a plus 5-1 .. at one time it was 3-0 ... |
|Nov-02-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: <Boris Gulko>
One of the games is actually a duplicate, so the score is actually 4-1. However, out of all 10 games (9 total, 4 gulko wins, 1 kasparov wins, 4 draws), 9 games Gulko plays as white... So it really isn't that spectacular.
Could you implement something so that the compare/contrast pages display not only the win/loss record, but also the white/black record between two players?
|Nov-02-03|| ||Open Defence: hehe didn't notice the duplicate Mr Lau .. but during the 90's I think Mr Gulko was one of the few players to have a plus score against Kasparov regardless of the white/black aspect ... if i am not mistaken ... though I wonder about that statistic as Kasparov had not won the USSR ch outright others must have had a tied or near plus score ? |
|Nov-02-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: Mr. Gulko does have a plus score during the 90s (most of the games between them are in the 90s obviously), but I just wanted to point out the gross unfairness- they've met in tournaments and 8/9 times, Gulko has gotten to play white. In modern chess among GMs, playing as white is the equivalent of having the serve in tennis. |
|Nov-02-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: Akopian also played as white more times in the database. |
|Nov-02-03|| ||Open Defence: True Mr Lau, I wonder if any analysis was done over Kasparov's plus scores (as to whether having white pieces made a big difference).. one thing though considering Kasparov's ability to win with Black (and I think it was this ability that finally was the deciding factor in most of his title matches) I feel that those who have had the fortune to draw white against him can feel proud :-) |
|Jan-12-04|| ||AdrianP: Kasparov had apparently recently referred to Akopian (+GMs Nisipeanu and Movsesian) as nothing more than chess tourists shortly before this embarrassing performance...! |
|Jul-19-04|| ||BoboKayo: geez!! Kasparov stinks on this game. Kasimdzhanov is going to crush you! |
|Aug-26-04|| ||Dpm: Kasparov makes a lot of these comments about everyone except for Kramnik, himself, and Anand but Akopian also had Kasparov on the ropes in another game I am trying to recall what it was does anybody know it?? |
|Jan-12-06|| ||silvio: In this game Kasparov played below
himself. It can happen (rarely !!)
to the greatest. the small number of moves is the most embarrassing here
but but after all he is human !!
|Jan-13-06|| ||offramp: <Benjamin Lau: ..In modern chess among GMs, playing as white is the equivalent of having the serve in tennis.> They win as white and lose as black?|
|Apr-20-06|| ||Petrosian63: Akopian is a very strong player and has sustained his 2700+ rating for a while. Kasparov deserves this lost.|
|Apr-20-06|| ||AlexandraThess: In my opinion Akopian is a bit overrated.He is a barely 2700 player.|
|Apr-20-06|| ||Petrosian63: I don't believe Akopian is overrated because he never gets the talk up before tournaments but ends up doing well.|
|Apr-20-06|| ||Organizer: I must be missing something because after 27. Qxf8+ Kxf8 there is no check with Ne5 on white's 28th move, and without that why does Kasparov resign?|
|Sep-13-06|| ||zerathul: <Organizer> look at white rook on f1|
|Feb-11-07|| ||sfm: What happens in this game? After 17.Nd2 everything still looks undramatic, although f2-f4 is right under the surface.
So black decides to strike first, and after a few more moves it is all over!
Where's blacks first mistake?|
|Feb-14-07|| ||argishti: sfm: What happens in this game?
the kasparov shock happened my friend!
there is a pic of kasparov looking helplessly at his advisor, when he lost this game:
and the headline:
The shock results kept coming on day three of the Alfa Bank Russia v Rest of the World rapid chess match at the Kremlin Palace. The Rest of the World led 25.5-24.5 overnight and increased their lead to 41.5-38.5 with two rounds to go. ROW had been buoyed by the terrible form of the three Russian world champions Anatoly Karpov, Garry Kasparov and Vladimir Kramnik and this trio fared even worse on day three having been thoroughly humbled the day before. The Ukrainian pair of Vassily Ivanchuk and Ruslan Ponomariov; losing finalist and victor respectively in the Fide championship this year led the way for the ROW with individual performances of 5/8.
