"A LITTLE BRILLANCY"
|May-07-04|| ||Bobsterman3000: unbelievable. |
|Feb-09-05|| ||Poisonpawns: Superb!! When Kasparov is gone from chess it will be like when Jordan left the N.B.A |
|Mar-10-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: It is a VERY nice game ... isn't it? |
|Mar-10-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Black resigns at the end for the following two reasons:
# 1.) If he puts his King in the corner, then Rh1 is mate.
# 2.) After 27...Qf7; 28.QxQ/f7+, KxQ/f7; 29. RxP/d7+, and 30.RxB/b7. (Garry would then be up a ton of Pawns.) |
|Mar-11-05|| ||Gowe: Poisonpawns, you see the future my friend, and you are right. This Kasparov retired is very hard to accept and probably as tought as the retired of Jordan, probably because both were youngs and still had a lot to give to the game. (Jordan cameback, who knows) |
|Mar-13-05|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Gowe>
We can only hope that he returns in a year or two. (I Keep my fingers crossed!!) Certainly no other player in chess offers the level of excitement that he brings to the game.
Most people do not realize is that he might be a little burnt out ... he has been doing chess almost constantly since before he was ten.
I count myself lucky, I am not even fifty yet. However I have witnessed both Fischer and Kasparov in action. (Of course lately, I watch his games via the Internet, like almost everyone else!)
|Mar-14-06|| ||alexandrovm: if they exchange queens white will be up 3 pawns, that's why black resigned|
|Sep-06-06|| ||nolanryan: the continuation if 19...exf4 ?|
|Sep-06-06|| ||nolanryan: upon further inspection with the computer, it looks very dangerous for black to try 19...exf4.
One plan for white in this case is Bxh7, followed by Rhe1, when if 21 ..Qd8, 22. Bf5 seems to bring major pressure down the central files.|
Another plan is 20. Nxh7 Nxh7 21 Bxh7 Kh8 22 Bg6 Qd8 23 Qc3! followed by ramming down the h-pawn. All kinds of sacs seem to work for white in this line.
The computer has a rough time calculating these lines though.
|Jan-01-09|| ||KingG: Games like this make me wish Kasparov had played more 2600 players in his career rather than just the very top guys.|
|Jun-11-09|| ||Al2009: Very nice game! But I am not sure 14.Bf4 (?!) was the best, it seems dubious. Why White gets back?
Probably after 14. Bd3, h6 (what else? 14...g6; 15. Bxe7, Qxe7 16. h5! is terrible for Black)15. Bxe7, Qxe7 16. Qe2! (with the idea Qe4 or Nb5) White is clearly superior without any need to sacrifice...|
|Jun-11-09|| ||TommyC: With 14.Bf4, white protects the e5 pawn and prevents black freeing his game with d6 or d5, for the time-being at least. If I understand Aquarium correctly both moves are in the Rybka 3 book with 14.Bd3 marginally preferred.|
|Sep-25-12|| ||maelith: Nice game by Kasparov..|
