|Jan-17-06|| ||LivinFree: Would 29 Rc3! have been a good move?|
|Jan-17-06|| ||aerohacedor: Is 25 Qf6 a mistake?
Wouldn't it be better if Kengis moved h7+ instead? It doesn't seem like the king has anywhere to go after being checked by the pawn, which is protected by the rook and queen.
|May-04-06|| ||DoomLord: to aerohacedor:
25. h7+? Kh8 and white has no way to get to black's king
ex: 26. Qf6 now black can play Bg7 since white's pawn is no longer guarding g7
|May-04-06|| ||DoomLord: does anyone know why white does not play Qf6 on move 33 but instead trades queens? I dont see black making any concrete threats and I dont think black can guard against white's mating threats along the a1-h8 diagonal.|
ex: 33. Qf6 Rg8 34. Qg7+!! Rxg7 35. hxg7+ Kg8 36. Rh8#
|May-04-06|| ||steamroller: DoomLord, if 33. Qf6, then black mates by 33... Qa5+, 34... Rc2+, and 35... Qa2#|
|May-04-06|| ||who: The reason the endgame is so difficult to win is that Kasparov has a wrong colored rook's pawn, so even fancy moves like 49...f4+ leave white with a draw.|
|Apr-07-07|| ||sumitkumar: white does a mistake here as i think.
he made a pre-mature decision. Qf6 should have been played a move later
h7 must have been played. alas white missed a chance to mate black
|Sep-26-07|| ||TopaLove: Kasparov has been always a good defender. Too bad he didnt got many oportunities to show it, since he was attacking most of times.|
|Jan-05-08|| ||DanLanglois: Black had the win but he played 48...Kh3? instead of 48..f4+! The idea is to sack two pawns for White's bishop. 49 Bxf4 d2 50 Kxd2 Kxf4.|
|Feb-20-09|| ||chillowack: No DanLanglois, that's not a win: White can move the king to the a1-square, from where he cannot be dislodged, and therefore Black cannot win. |
White can even sacrifice the b-pawn, and still get a draw (as long as the black a-pawn doesn't get to the b-file in the process).
|Mar-10-09|| ||furrer: chillo are you sure black cant force the black pawn to be a b pawn by capturing whites b pawn?|
|Apr-19-09|| ||WhiteRook48: despite that black is ahead two pawns, white's king and bishop, which are blocking them, stops them from promoting|
|May-22-09|| ||quiche1ss: h8 at move 30 is mated.. i think kengis is trying to prove his ability and u know...|
|Feb-07-10|| ||remolino: <quiche1ss> White is in check on move 30, does not have time for 31.Qh8|
|Feb-07-10|| ||remolino: What a game for Kasparov, the kid. Most of us wish we could play today at the level of this wonder kid.|
|Nov-22-11|| ||qqdos: <remolino> Here's another 9-year-old kid who could defend (and win!) against the Velimirovic Attack A Oganian vs Kramnik, 1984 - just as Garry was about to compete for the World Crown. This Kasparov game is a down-the-line Velimirovic (not B88 Sozin as indicated above) and was played 2 years befor Kramnik was born!|
|Dec-19-11|| ||wordfunph: nice game description by Nikitin in the book Garry Kasparov on Garry Kasparov Part 1 1973-1985..|
<Nikitin: That day I watched Garik's game almost from the very start. My attention was immediately drawn to the board at which two contestants of quite different sizes were playing. A small, punny, dark-haired boy was looking seriously at the board and endlessly fidgeting on his chair. And sitting immobile opposite him was a tall, good-looking Latvian, who when thinking would literally tower over the battlefield. Compared with Garik, Kengis looked not only a giant, but also a highly-experienced fighter, but the events which occurred on the board forced the age difference to be forgotten.>
|Dec-19-11|| ||qqdos: <wordfunph> thanx for that anecdote!|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Penguincw: Nice job! A draw against Kasparov, future world champ.|
|Oct-24-13|| ||MrJafari: beautiful game...|
|Feb-16-15|| ||chilz: Move 32 really confuses me. Why did he move the queen to e7 instead of g7 for mate instead???|
|Feb-16-15|| ||MarkFinan: <chilz: Move 32 really confuses me. Why did he move the queen to e7 instead of g7 for mate instead???>|
White was also in check! Can't be ignoring those pesky king checks in this day and age;)
|Feb-16-15|| ||chilz: Ok. I see it now. Thanks markfinan|
|Jan-05-17|| ||asyriab: I see 31. Qh8# :)|
|Feb-08-18|| ||Muttley101: <asyriab: I see 31. Qh8# :)>|
White is in check.
