|Oct-23-04|| ||Sadgrinner: Because I could not see why Magerramov resigned, here's some help who don't feel like figuring out the continuation on their own.|
If 36. Nxe5, then 36...Rxf4 threatening violence at f1, so
37. Rxf4 Qxe5 recovering the knight.
At the end of this specific melee, Kasparov's Bxe5 wins a pawn. More importantly, positionally the queen is poised to capture at either 38...e1 or 38...b2, a won game in either case as I see it.
|Nov-02-04|| ||Larsenb3: Because being down two pawns in the endgame would have been the deciding factor. |
|Nov-29-04|| ||Kingsandsquares: It isn't the two pawns that is the deciding factor, but Kasparov taking the rook or the queen depending on 35..? |
|Nov-30-04|| ||Lawrence: Greetings, <Kingsandsquares>--great name!--welcome to the site from all of us. |
|Nov-30-04|| ||alexandrovm: Right on <kingsands...etc> and welcome! |
|Mar-12-05|| ||Orbitkind: Can anyone help me as to why white cannot play 31.Qxh4 |
|Mar-12-05|| ||tpstar: 31. Qxh4?? g5 32. Qg3/Qh5 Rxf4 wins.
Nice display by Kasparov of a positional advantage leading to winning tactics.
|Oct-21-05|| ||Gritty: 1973, how young would Kasparov been? 10?|
|Oct-26-05|| ||Anatooly Homedepotov: 10. Welcome aboard, Gritty!|
|Dec-11-05|| ||roger05: Hi Sadgrinner, Magerramov resigned because Kasparov would not have played Qxe5 to recover the Knight. He could have gone Bxg2+. Not taking the Bishop with the Queen results in mate so after white Qxg2 Black would Qxf5 taking the rook and not the Knight.|
|Jan-24-07|| ||radioterapista: Bxg2 + ??, because after that move there is Qxg2 and lose the advantage... If white plays Qxf4, black plays Kxd7 and white can resign. Sadgrinner idea is correct! (I think)|
|Feb-21-07|| ||amadeus: 26.Re2 seems like a regular blunder to me.
26... Qf5-Bc5-Bc6 was nice, but why not 26... Rxf4 ? Fear of a trap? Doesn't kids like tactics anymore? BTW, nice ending.
|Sep-09-07|| ||MH7000: Y would Rxf4??? Then black would do rook to d1, right? help me out here|
|Mar-22-08|| ||Jason Frost: <sadgrinner>There is no endgame white resigned because after 36 ... Rxf4 37. Rxf4 Qxe5 38. Rf1 Qxb2 white can't stop the pawn from queening.|
<amadeus>Why Gaza played 26. Qf5? instead of Rxf4! winning immidiatly, probably had a mental lapse or fell asleep.
<roger05> After 37. ... Bxg2?? 38. Qxg2 Qxf4 39. Nxd7( ) white is up 2 pieces for two pawns
|Nov-06-08|| ||TheWizardfromHarlem: why does 10.Nb3 come after Bd7?|
|Nov-06-11|| ||DubbleX: good game kasparov crushes in end game|
|Nov-28-12|| ||Arkan: 18.11.1973 is the exact date of the game ! update it pls|
|Mar-07-13|| ||Chessbing: instead of asking why, i say 36.Nxe5 Rxf4 37.Qxf4 could've been played to save the knight. But this is not to take Garry Kasparov's greatness away from the man.|
|Mar-07-13|| ||Chessbing: I'm sorry 37Qxf4 and black answers amazingly with Qxg2 checkmate|
|Mar-07-13|| ||Chessbing: kasparov the great kasparov the wonderful|
|Apr-04-13|| ||Shibin: I was checking this game with the engine, and imagine my surprise when the engine showed -5.2 after 26.Re2. Kasparov missed 26..Rxf4!|
