Aug-11-05  blingice: Kasparov pins the pawn on move 18, and after black's 19th move, the bishop is pinned. He then uses that pin to take the knight, gaining him a pawn.

  JointheArmy: <Akuni> He's been in and out of Russian prison and I heard he was trying lead some type of revolt against the Russian government. Shame, he had real potential in the chess world.
Apr-19-09  WhiteRook48: this is Kasparov's first game played in this database

  jessicafischerqueen: <Kasparov> has a clear edge in this endgame due to a better pawn structure, but the main story of this game is the HOWLING BLUNDER that hands him the win on a platter-



Game over

Aug-17-11  ProjectR: Maybe Kasparov didn't have the natural ability of a fischer or a carlsen at this age(12-13yrs old),but he worked hard and he's sure made up for it since ! The greatest chess player of all time without question

  wordfunph: from his book Garry Kasparov on Garry Kasparov Part 1: 1973-1985, this game was one of Kaspy's first memorable games..
Jan-26-12  nelech: Kasparov was particularly proud of : 23 Qg5!
Sep-26-13  MrJafari: another affective game of Kasparov,though I think his opponent played well too, except of his last mistake...
Oct-27-14  Amornivla: I wanna be like him !!! hope to see you in person.

  Noflaps: I have coached young chess players, and while all were jewels in many ways just a few showed surprising talent. In that context, if I had ever seen a 10-year-old play like White played here, my jaw would still be on the floor. This is a very interesting game, with evidence of a 10-year-old thinking well and strategically ahead. It merits replay again and again to spot all the nuances (although no doubt some of the geniuses who grace this site will see those nuances more quickly than I).
