|Jan-05-05|| ||chesscookie: Kasparov takes a sound beating. Why not move the d pawn and lose a pawn? He could play for a draw. |
|Jan-05-05|| ||Flyboy216: You mean the e pawn? Actually, why can't he play 23. e4 dxe4 24. fxe4? The bishop can't recapture then with the back rank mate threat.|
I guess the position is lost from there, though.
|Jan-05-05|| ||ArturoRivera: I agree with chesscockie, perhaps he should have play for a draw and trust on those reliable opposite colored bishops. |
|Jan-08-05|| ||Whitehat1963: Kasparov's quickest loss with white during his tenure as champion. But what's the finish? |
|Jan-09-05|| ||beatgiant: <Whitehat1963: But what's the finish?>
Maybe it is the kingside attack more than the pawn. For example, 23. e4 dxe4 24. fxe4 Qg6 25. Bxa7 Bxe4 26. Qd4 h5! 27. Rf2 h4 28. Re3 h3, and White appears to be defenseless against the threat of 29...Bg2 threatening a breakthrough on the first rank: 29. Rf4 Bg2 30. Rxe7 Qb1+, etc. |
|Jan-09-05|| ||sergeidave: <beatgiant> In your line, why would 25.Bxa7 be better than 25.Rce2?? |
|Jan-09-05|| ||beatgiant: <sergeidave: <beatgiant> In your line, why would 25.Bxa7 be better than 25.Rce2??>|
I did not claim best play, I only said <For example>. If White tries to avoid the plan in the above line with 23. e4 dxe4 24. fxe4 Qg6 25. Rce2 Bxe4 26. Qc3 h5 27. h4, then 27...Re6 has a lot of threats, such as 28. Bxa7 Bf3 or 28. Qe1 Bd3 or 28. Rf2 Rd8 29. Rfe2 Bf3.
|Nov-30-05|| ||lopium: On many many games played as Nimzo Indian with white, Kasparov only lose twice, and against Kramnik!|
|Nov-30-05|| ||KingG: This is a blitz game, so i wouldn't count this as a 'loss' against Kramnik.|
|Apr-21-09|| ||HAPERSAUD: heres an interesting sideline from the position after 21.... Qh5|
22.g4 Bxg4 23.fxg4 Qxh2+ 24.Kf1 Qh1+ 25.Bg1 Re3 26.Qf5 g6 27.Qf2 d4 28.Rd2 R8e4 29.Rd3 Rxg4 30.Rxe3 dxe3 31.Qh2 Rf4+ 32.Qxf4 Qh3#
|Apr-21-09|| ||HAPERSAUD: he could have played for a draw in that position by just moving the white king of course|
