Aug-29-11  LIFE Master AJ: I first tried to post this game here right after CG opened.

Anyway, I submitted it MULTIPLE times ... apparently it has been accepted.

I think that Kasparov's play was simply brilliant ... there might be several POTD's in here.

Aug-29-11  LIFE Master AJ: BTW ... I think this might have been played on Kasparov's own (chess-playing) website, it opened with a war-chest of millions of dollars, but it evenually went belly-up.
Aug-29-11  LIFE Master AJ: 68.b5!! is every brilliant.
Aug-29-11  LIFE Master AJ: very brilliant (typo)
Sep-20-11  LIFE Master AJ: 64.Kf5!! The point of this pawn sacrifice is NOT readily apparent.
Sep-20-11  LIFE Master AJ: And look at that rating ... 2851!!!!!
Sep-20-11  LIFE Master AJ: Kasparov - when he was KING!
Oct-04-11  LIFE Master AJ: What's the procedure for getting a game into "Guess the move" on this website?

  Domdaniel: Yeah, nice game. At the end, 73...Bg6 seems to put up more resistance, though White should still win. The idea is to stop the d-pawn with ...Be8, but it costs Black too many of his pawns. If 74.Rxg4 Kf7,

then White can either play Kxb3 and advance his King, or switch the Rook to the b-file with Rb4. Both seem to win -- but not 75.Rxg6?? Kxg6 when the Black King can still stop the d-pawn.

  Zugged: or theres a more direct way d6 If Bf5 then Rf4
Jul-30-17  clement41: 29 Qa3! beginners would not at once understand why white is willing to deteriorate his structure. Reminds Rozentalis vs R Appel, 1993 29 Qa3!
and Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 13 Qa3!?
