Mar-19-04  MoonlitKnight: Yes, the youngsters generally make up for lack of experience with their prodigal calculating abilities. With Magnus it is particularly so. He is almost a pure calculator, kind of like Nezhmetdinov or Polugavsky.
Mar-19-04  MoonlitKnight: Polugaevsky, that is.
Apr-24-04  chrismiceli: I am almost sure this game was rapid, or blitz.
Apr-27-04  Jack21221: Chrismiceli... do ya think? Considering the name of the frickin tournament is "Reykjavid RAPID," one would expect that it was a rapid game.
May-27-04  sergeidave: Hi Guys, I'm kind of knowing all these great young players... So far I've seen some games of Sergey Karjakin, Teimour Radjabov, and Magnus Carlsen... Is there more great young players around the same age or something? <MoonlitKnight> Now that you mentioned Nezhmetdinov and Polugaevsky, I need to replay some of their games too!! Thanks guys!
Jun-25-04  MoonlitKnight: This game has a very nice annotation video by IM Mark Diesen at, although I almost fell asleep listening to that guy.

<sergeidave> Hikaru Nakamura and Shakryiar Mamedyarov are other great youngsters.

Oct-18-04  who: Are move 3 and 4 in the wrong order?

  acirce: <Are move 3 and 4 in the wrong order?> Well, all sources I know give it this way. Any specific reason you ask?
Nov-01-04  who: <acirce> I would have played 3...c5 or 3...e5 leaving white with a slightly akward pawn structure, though looking at the opening explorer, it seems it isn't uncommon.
Nov-01-04  Larsenb3: <MoonlitKnight>I feel that Nakamura should start playing more difficult people, it seems that as he gets older he plays less difficult people. By the way, you meant Shahriyar Mamedyarov correct?
Nov-01-04  Larsenb3: Nevermind I just found out that there are two ways people spell it. He's native to Azerbaijan same as Alekhine.
Nov-01-04  Knezh: This is the first time i hear Alekhine was from Azerbaijan.
Nov-02-04  Larsenb3: That's interesting, I had thought it was common knowledge, guess not.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: Alekhine was born in Moscow, Halloween 1892. He died in Estoril March 24 1946.
Nov-02-04  Larsenb3: Sorry I was thinking of one of the players in the game above, Garry Kasparov, born in Azerbaijan's capital of Baku.
Dec-03-04  shakespeare918: this goes to show you can be a chess prodigy at 13 but I think mangus needs a little more experiance
Sep-22-05  Averageguy: 22.d7 is a wonderful move. The rooks are forker, taking with the queen allows 23.Nf6+ and taking with the bishop allows 23.Nd6. Great game by Kasparov! <He is almost a pure calculator, kind of like Nezhmetdinov or Polugavsky.> I understand you making the comparison to Nezhmetdinov, but as far as I know Polugaevsky wasn't a very good tactician, apparently it let him down on some occasions.
May-13-06  MagnaPsygnosis: Uncle Gary tought the wannabe kid why his real name is MR. KASPAROV

1. Magnus didnt have any say in the

2. 21. Ne4 (Totally outmaneuvered the
kid (outmaneuvered him)

3. 21. Bf5
22. Bxd7
These are the things that shows the man who wants to c that magnus didnt know where he is at, at that moment. Deep inside he knew he is going to loose. So what did he do.., yes he did what every non-GM does......DEFEND and DEFEND and DEFEND

And the best part of it all.... uncle Gary didnt even attack him....

4. 28. Qxd1... no doubt .... Gary was only toying with the child...

Little Mango took his ball and ran home.


Mar-28-07  vesivialvy93: The move 20...d4 looks very bad here ! it would have been good (not certain!) to move the 20...Bd7 now and give the pawn instead even with an horrible center ! in fast game we never know...
Sep-09-07  MH7000: man it must have been cool to play against a player like Kasparov at such an age!
Mar-25-12  Robyn Hode: When faced with the fianchetto Black should opt for a Grunfeld.
Mar-12-13  ismet: why kaspar did not play " Nd6 " move-23? I did not see it was bad move ! you see anything ?
Mar-12-13  Nerwal: There is nothing wrong with 23. ♘d6. It just happens that 23. ♗xd4 is stronger, because black then has no good answer to ♘f6+ and he just loses more material.
Apr-07-14  GumboGambit: Ten years later, and Magnus is still waiting for his rematch!
Apr-08-14  RookFile: Kasparov was smart, he knew when it was time to get out of chess.
