|Jul-26-08|| ||aazqua: Sting didn't hold off Kasparov; Kasparov batted him around in his paws for a while and lost interest. I'm sure Kasparov wanted to keep him around for a little while since it was the "Sting" simul.|
>>>Despite the inevitable loss, it is impressive to hold out for 45 moves against a player of such calibre.
|Aug-24-08|| ||Augalv: Well played by the lead singer of The Police|
|Oct-02-08|| ||just a kid: Not to bad of a game by sting.|
|Oct-02-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Probably better than Kasparov's singing, at least...|
|Oct-02-08|| ||ughaibu: I dont know, Kasparov looks a bit of a crooner. If all politicians satisfied their desire for attention by singing. . . . .|
|Oct-19-08|| ||GeauxCool: Sting missed the brilliant 41...d3+|
|Oct-19-08|| ||neverSummeRed: He also missed the impressive
36. ... Bb8!!
Which easily wins the game
|Dec-31-08|| ||blacksburg: 17...d5? 39...exd4? not good, sting. not good.|
|Dec-31-08|| ||blacksburg: that's a real nice bishop there on a7 sting. reeeeally nice.|
|Jan-01-09|| ||cracknik: I know kasparov played chess for a living and sting sings songs for a living but with sting being a self admitted avid chess player, I think his play was atrocious.|
|Feb-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Kasparov had to Sting his opponent|
|Mar-09-09|| ||pleutman: It was a tribute to Kasparov's sportsmanship that he played particularly passive against Sting's aimless endevours;by giving Sting the illusion he wanted to show to his non-chess playing fans...And this game reminded me of that scene in Starwars when R2D2 is playing chess with Chewbacca,and C3P0 advises R2D2 that when playing against Chewbacca's volatile ego; "it appears that the rules of the game are;-let the wookie win"...Kasparov here played a simular diplomatic game variant called ;"don't make Sting look a c*nt" (There was no point fighting Sting while he was busy fighting himself!) Oh yeah,and that Bishop looked "SO LONELY!,SO LONELY!,SO..LONE..LY!!!|
|Mar-11-09|| ||pleutman: For those who say Sting's playing ability is the quintessential example of the standard of English Chess(although only joking) ,ought to remember that in our superabundant county with all other sensual distractions;chess is considered a poormans playstation(ala spotty)...i don't know anybody personally who plays,or who did;without walking away halfway because they couldn't mentally hack it(phew cut me loose!)..Its no wonder that poorer oppresive countries produce the talents.(although this has been said a million times elsewhere probably)|
|Mar-11-09|| ||Jim Bartle: "chess is considered a poormans playstation"
Quite the comedown for a great nation. Of course I'm sure it's not close to being true.
Then again, pleutman refers to a "superabundant county" with "sensual distractions," so maybe it's just some little-known wonderful corner of England.
|Mar-11-09|| ||pleutman: Probably not wrong;Dorset UK invented the "spoilt b*stard"..Its not like they need to play for a better life..But yes;what a bad bishop Sting!|
|Mar-11-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: You should see Kasparov's game with Chris Brown. He really got beat! :)|
|Dec-01-09|| ||md65000: "Despite the inevitable loss, it is impressive to hold out for 45 moves against a player of such calibre." |
Anyone can just keep on playing in a hopelessly lost position. That's not much of a feat.
|Dec-01-09|| ||ajk68: Anyone have a clue if Sting has a rating? My guess would be around 1200.|
|Dec-02-09|| ||Sacsacmate: <ajk68> Did you mean -1200 ?!|
|Oct-11-10|| ||sevenseaman: This game is probably here only in order to prove how poorly placed can a Bishop be.|
|Dec-08-10|| ||chesschampion11: chessnetwork says on youtube.com that sting already resignd at move 29! what is the right move? 29 or 45?|
|Dec-27-10|| ||Penguincw: <chesschampion11> Sting resigned on move 45.Sting could've resigned on move 29 but he chose not to.|
|Aug-21-12|| ||Jazzer32: This should be GOTD..something like "Biting The Police"
|Aug-21-12|| ||Robed.Bishop: Sting got stung.|
