|Dec-15-06|| ||setebos: If he was such a genius why did he get blown up on a Benko Gambit?|
|Dec-15-06|| ||Brown: ummm... simul? Happens to the best at times? Fluke? Flounder?|
|Jan-11-07|| ||The Chess Express: In 1983 Gaza was not much older than Conquest and nowhere near his peak.|
|Feb-06-07|| ||IMDONE4: powerful exchange sac on move 17, although i dont know if it was intentional =)|

If that was the case in 1983, i guess he isnt much older than Conquest today either. :)
|May-04-07|| ||The Chess Express: Ha Ha Ha funny...|
|May-26-07|| ||IMDONE4: Gaza was 4 years older than conquest, enough to make significant difference; kasparov was already pretty much a top grandmaster|
|May-26-07|| ||IMDONE4: anyways its a simul, so its not like conquest beat garry at classical|
|Jun-14-07|| ||The Chess Express: Good point.|
|Aug-29-07|| ||Richard Taylor: Good game by Conquest - blew Kasparov away!|
|Aug-29-07|| ||Jim Bartle: I would guess this is a clock simul, where Kasparov played maybe six good English players with a classical time control. I doubt it was a thirty or forty board simul where he went around from board to board.|
|Sep-01-07|| ||The Chess Express: I never was much of a fan of the 5. b6 Benko. The best way to refute a gambit is to accept it.|
|Feb-21-08|| ||greenrook: I can't immediately see what's wrong with 25. Qd1 for white.|
His queenside pieces are in a tangle, but how does black take advantage?
|Mar-25-08|| ||The Chess Express: One possible line is 25. Qd1 Qc4 26. Be3 Nc5 27. Nxb4 Nxa4 28. Qxa4 Bxb4 29. Rc1 Bc3 30. Qa3 d4 31. Qd6+ Kc8 32. Qxd4 Qxd4 33. Bxd4 Rh7 34. Rxc3 Rc7|

White should probably be able to draw this.
|Mar-01-11|| ||newzild: <The Chess Express> I invite you to consider my assessment of the position, which to me looks like a near-certain win for Black.|
In your final position, Black has a knight for two pawns and threatens Rc2 unless White exchanges rooks (35. Rg3 Ne7, intending 36...Rc2). After White exchanges rooks on c7, Black can play ...Ne7 and ...Bc8 or ...Be4, with a light-square blockade.
If White plays Bc5 to stop Black's knight from going to e7, then Black can play Kc6-b5, attacking the a-pawn and bishop. The bishop cannot defend both the a-pawn and the e7 square. If the bishop drops back on the a5-e1 diagonal to maintain defence of the a-pawn, then Black plays Ne7-c6, winning the a-pawn.
Even if White does liquidate Black's K-side pawns, which is his only real hope for a draw, Black still has winning chances with his a-pawn.
