|Nov-24-04|| ||PinkPanther: The burden of being 2800...Kasparov is +4 and is still only scheduled to gain 5 points :( |
|Nov-24-04|| ||Stevens: <chessgames.com> you can't sneak things like this past us!! |
|Nov-24-04|| ||tpstar: Look sharp, boys - the Dancing Rook!! |
|Nov-24-04|| ||aw1988: Muahahaha. Now the secret is out! Everyone knows! Invite your friends! |
|Nov-24-04|| ||flamboyant: GK done it again!!!!! well played!! |
|Nov-24-04|| ||yoozum: after 21 Qxa6:
"Awww...kasparov's playing for the draw again..."
|Nov-24-04|| ||arielbekarov: Garry Kasparov won against a player, who I appreciate very much, Peter Svidler.
Didn't Svidler won this tournament last year ?
But Kasparov is obviously very motivated, I can only say congratulations to him for his greatness !
|Nov-24-04|| ||sergeidave: Why does it say "Uncommon King's Pawn Opening (B00"?? Isn't this a "Queen's Gambit Declined"? |
|Nov-24-04|| ||yoozum: yes, according to playchess it's some form of slav. however, playchess' opening database is obviously better, no offense cg.com!, which is why it has a name there. |
|Nov-24-04|| ||square dance: <sergiedave> it is definitely a QGD slav defense. it says uncommon kings pawn opening because cg.com was testing out some new software so they didnt bother to label it properly. or something like that. ;-) its not as if cg.com is under the impression that this game is an uncommon kings pawn opening. |
|Nov-24-04|| ||acirce: "Kramnik-style" positional squeeze and endgame mastery, impressive game. But Svidler didn't conduct his defense very well near the end. 50..e5 and 51..e4 were both bad. 36..Nxc5 could have been tried but White does seem to get the better of it in the B vs N endgame ensuing from AdrianP's suggestion 37.Rd8 Rxd8 38.Bxd8 Nb3 39.Rxc6 Nd4+ 40.Kd3 Nxc6|
And yes, Svidler won this tournament last year, and yes, this would of course normally have been classified as the Slav it is, were it not for that little experiment.
|Nov-24-04|| ||yoozum: it's a shame, i know next to nothing about the QG defenses. |
|Nov-24-04|| ||alexandrovm: it's Kasparov style, making pawn sacs all over the board ;) Kasparov has many games and experience to call some one else the style. Kasparov has a style of his own. |
|Nov-24-04|| ||Knezh: Kasparov's style lately has calmed down quite a bit - from the wildly combinative to positional manoevering.. The influence of fashion! |
|Nov-24-04|| ||PinkPanther: This is a true beauty by Kasparov. |
|Nov-25-04|| ||arjunkakar: well I suspect this would be the most satisfying win of the tournment so far for Kasparov. In terms of accuracy, the stage of the tournament and the quality of opposition. It also shows again kasparov's amazing understanding of the chess board. |
|Nov-25-04|| ||euripides: Chessbase suggested the audience theoughtg 36Rd1 was an error and black could draw after 36...Nxc5 37 Rcd1 Nb3 38 Rxc6 Rxc6 39 Rxc6 Nd4+ 40 Kd3 Nxc6. However, the ending looks good for White - the white king can advance on the black queen's side pawns. |
|Nov-25-04|| ||abusuliman: how to watch previous games plz |
|Dec-07-04|| ||patzer2: Seems to me this game is a good late middle game/early endgame lesson in the technique of exploiting backward pawns. Kasparov makes a target of the backward pawn on c6 with 20. Rc2! After 37...Nxa4 38. Ra1 the pawn on a5 and then the one on b3 become targets. As Svidler resigns, the weak pawn on h5 is about to fall. |
|Dec-11-04|| ||TroubleMaker: There's a picture after 1.d4 d5: "Are you being serious?" Kasparov stared at Svidler. I would say that Kasparov even looked insulted by that.|
I wonder: what's so special about that? It's not like Svidler played the Damiano.
|Dec-11-04|| ||tpstar: <TroubleMaker> Hello! Welcome to the group! There must be some nonverbal gamesmanship going on, especially at the GM level, playing mind games to gain some psychological advantage. Ever see the start of a Sumo wrestling match? It's a giant stare-down. See you around. |
|Dec-11-04|| ||Minor Piece Activity: Svidler is a Grunfeld specialist which is why Kaspy raised some eyebrows when he played the Slav. |
|Feb-19-06|| ||YAHWEH: garry is the best ever! why do people think he is not?|
|Aug-08-06|| ||positionalgenius: This is one of the many games that Garry plays in the later stages of his career where his play is very similar to his old nemesis,Anatoli Karpov.|
|Jul-03-07|| ||sanyas: <YAHWEH> Because, my holy friend, some of us like other players, eg. Fischer, Capablanca, Alekhine, Morphy etc...|
