  spirit: ...for some special reason...
Aug-07-06  Helios727: Fischer would call the use of computers "cheating."
Oct-11-07  Jesspatrick: At move 26, the position looks like it might have come from a King's Indian defense. Remarkable.
Oct-11-07  dabearsrock1010: Illustrates the major weakness of the sveshnikov...there is a piece on d5 for almost the entire game

  NARC: 40. Nf6 also looks promising ;-)
Jul-31-13  umairjavaid: i have a BIG question...can any1 tell me that why at 42nd move black didnt go for rook to f2 instead of bishop to is obviously strong move....or did garry kasparov just missed it n gave up the game........????
Jul-31-13  derfderf: 42 ... Rff2 43. Ne3 and black is still in trouble
If 43 ... Rfe2 44 c7 would win.
I guess Kasparov is hoping white would blunder with 43. c7 Bxe4! 44. c8=q rxg2+ and black will have perpetual
