|Nov-04-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: Nice game nikolaas. What is the palace of pioneers? |
|Nov-05-04|| ||Eatman: Pioneers was the Soviet Youth organisation. Think of Boy/Girl Scouts , except everyone had to join from grades 3 to 7 and wear those silly red scarves. Most big cities had Pioneer Palaces, those contained clubs for all kind of activities including chess.
This game comes from a simul visiting Korchnoi gave to young 12 year old pioneer Garry. |
|Nov-05-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: Thanks for the history lesson Eatman! Wow, imagine giving a simul to Kasparov! |
|Nov-05-04|| ||offramp: <Ray Keene> once beat Karpov and Kortschnoi simultaneously! He'll tell you about it! |
|Nov-05-04|| ||ray keene: <offramp> sadly not-not at chess anyway-the only game i beat korchnoi consistently at was bridge and that was only because i kept on getting mega hands but bid very cautiously.|
by the way-your calais to vladivostock railway-i presume the 3 stops are in addition to the basic journey time.
i cant believe that kasparov didnt crush korchnoi from this opening-whites play was awful.
|Nov-05-04|| ||Griffin: As soon as White played g4 I stopped viewing the game in disgust. |
|Nov-05-04|| ||offramp: <ray keene: <offramp> sadly not-not at chess> I did have a vague recollection that you and Bill Hartston had beaten the 2 Ks in a hand of bridge - that was what I was thinking of.|
The three stops are St. Omer - Hazebrouck - Birobidzhan.
|Nov-05-04|| ||Sneaky: Bridge, now there's a game which is totally over my head. Funny story, though... offramp had me going for a while. |
|Nov-05-04|| ||nikolaas: Bride is not as good as Whist. Color Whist (Klerurenwiezen) is, after Life an Chess the best game I know. |
|Aug-15-09|| ||UnicornChessman: I've never fully understood how top-level players can manage to play so awefully as this... Apparantly the trick to becoming a world champ is to throw poo at each other while giggling like a little girl, haha.|
|Jan-20-10|| ||HeMateMe: korchnoi must have been wondering, if a 14 year old is doing this, will I be near the top much longer?|
|Mar-07-13|| ||Chessbing: haha, i'm only twenty and i'm going to the world open this year. yes!!!=D|
|Nov-14-13|| ||QueentakesKing: Kas at a very young age was already exhibiting an inclination to sacrifice.|
|Mar-02-14|| ||MrJafari: Both players were good and that created a near game,but not so interesting for me,although instructive!|

|Sep-16-17|| ||sachistu: Is this venue correct? According to articles published on the Chess.com and Chessbase websites, Kasparov mentions playing a simul against Korchnoi in 1975. Kasparov's comments were identified as coming from his Facebook page. |
Kasparov says the game was played in Leningrad. Oddly, the Chess.com website lists the game as being played at Baku (as given here). Kasparov says he was 13. However, based on his birth date (April 1963), he would only have been 12. Could Kasparov have 'mis-remembered' both his age and the venue?

Here it says (Google Translate): <With Garry Kasparov at the simultaneous game with the children's national team of Azerbaijan, 1975>
|Sep-26-17|| ||HeMateMe: Is the last photo in that Russian article Korchnoi with his son?|
|Sep-26-17|| ||beatgiant: <HeMateMe>
The caption on the last photo says the second person is Dmitry Gordon, the author of the article.
|Sep-29-17|| ||sachistu: Thanks <Stonehenge>. I had seen the photo, but not the caption. Evidently, Kasparov was speaking extemporaneously.|
