Dec-14-12  laikn1: Is this exchange is sound and why actually Kasparov did it?
Dec-20-15  ToTheDeath: Of course it's sound. Black had full material equivalent for the Queen and very active pieces. White had to be careful to maintain equality.
Dec-20-15  Mehem: <very active pieces> That's why White should have played 27.g4! instead of taking pawn 27.Rxd6. 27... Bd3 28.Rxd3 Nxd3 29.Qxd3 R8e6 30.Kg2

with the plan f3, Ne4, Qd4. It would have been extremely difficult for Black to save a draw.

  stoy: In 1972 Padevsky defeated Karpov on the white side of a Sicilian. He had his moments.
Dec-20-15  Howard: Well, yeah, but Kasparov wasn't exactly in peak form back in 1972, was he ?
Dec-20-15  Helios727: Howard, I think you mean Karpov. Karpov turned 21 in 1972 and was already a very strong player.
