|Apr-28-16|| ||chancho: Makes you wonder if Garry's decision to retire in 2005 was wise.|
|Apr-28-16|| ||PawnSac: Garry is still quite strong. What he lacks is the stamina required in a classical match, but in shorter games he can stand toe to toe with the best.|
|Apr-28-16|| ||PawnSac: < chancho: > I think after such a long career one gets to the place where ya just don't want to work that hard any more. When you have enough money that you can retire comfortably, why not enjoy life and the things you deprived yourself of while working over the board as a champion.|

|Apr-28-16|| ||Zenchess: After a game like this, I wonder if Garry is kicking himself for not using the Scotch against Kramnik.|
|Apr-28-16|| ||SimplicityRichard: I always had the strong feeling that Garry Kasparov was not really superseded by Vladimir Kramnik despite his loss to the latter. In my opinion, he was still the best even after several years in his retirement until the peaking of Magnus Carlsen. Magnus might be able to deal with Garry and win. Most current elite players might beat Garry now because he is retired and not in form. In fact I dare suggest that Carlsen might have had serious trouble with an in-form Kasparov. Even in his own admission as a young boy, just before facing Karpov, Carlsen once commented that he felt comfortable facing Karpov and anybody else for that matter; apart from Kasparov.#|
|Apr-28-16|| ||posoo: now dis - DIS - is a fine example of a game played in da posooian style! Kaspo just needded A FEW MINUTS to get back in da groov. Shame about dat other game to Wesso. terrible but REDEMPTION is a sweet plumb!|
|Apr-28-16|| ||Chessmusings: Kasparov's Scotch too Strong for So: https://chessmusings.wordpress.com/...|
|Apr-28-16|| ||maelith: Kasparov still has the magic touch. Without the rush of layoff, Kasparov could have played better in this tournament.|
|Apr-29-16|| ||iking: 20... f6 ... whatta move by old Kasparov ...|
|Apr-29-16|| ||iking: i mean 21. Bd5.|
|Apr-29-16|| ||Castleinthesky: <iking> I agree 21.Bd5!! forces the rook for bishop exchange, otherwise Black loses his queen or is mated.|
|May-03-16|| ||QueentakesKing: The Immortal Kasparov!|
|May-03-16|| ||QueentakesKing: Garry Kasparov still the king of the Scotch game!!!!!!!|
|May-03-16|| ||visayanbloggermd: King of home prep Kasparov.|
|May-03-16|| ||User not found: Makes you wonder why So played e5. I've heard about Kasparov mastering the Sicilian in his heyday but So's over 30 years his junior so you would have thought he'd try steer clear of the scotch given that Kasparov has been playing it <very well> in this little tourney. Still no shame in losing to Kasparov though, for me he's the chess goat.|
|May-17-16|| ||Virgil A: Frankly, it's more impressive for Kasparov who has not played competitive chess in many many years to beat a present top 10 player WBS than the other way around.|

Indeed, it is impressive.
|Dec-16-16|| ||chessalem: haven't you heard from the grapevine?
Wesley decapitated Garry in their last 5 games...3 wins to none...and allowed him only two draws....
what happened when a mortal meets a true chess GOD?

What's the point of writing "last 5 games" when they've only played six games total (all blitz). Why not give the complete record?
|Dec-16-16|| ||chessalem: what's so impressive with a lone win when the fact is Garry lost 3 games - i.e. 2 more games against Wesley?|
Why not give the complete record?
|Dec-18-16|| ||saffuna: I think giving the complete record of six games is more informative than giving just five games. Seems obvious.|
You will see that So won 3, Kasparov won 1, and two were drawn. Accuracy. All blitz games.
