|Aug-15-17|| ||The Kings Domain: 35)...Re3! was a killer move and an impressive touch in inflicting Kasparov's first loss.|

|Aug-15-17|| ||patzer2: Instead of 33. Rh1? allowing 33...Qg5 ∓ (-1.10 @ 32 depth, Stockfish 8,) White can hold it level with 33. Rxe8 = (-0.03 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 8.)|
|Aug-16-17|| ||siggemannen: Nepo has no respect for his elders :)|
|Aug-16-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: 33. Be6 come and get it!|
|Aug-16-17|| ||Jamboree: Is the final position after 37. f3 really so hopeless? Sure, black is threatening all kinds of mates, but white can sac his rook and bishop to get out of the mating net and then be left with a worse position -- but is there any way to get a draw out of it?:|
37. ... Rxh7+
38. Kxh7 Qxg6+
39. Qxg6 Bxg6+
40. Kxg6 Kf2
41. Kf5 Kxf3
So now white is a bishop down, but has an extra pawn and momentary control of the center after e4.
The real problem for white now is that black's bishop is the correct color to queen black's rook pawn. If it wasn't for that detail, I think it would have been a draw. But I guess that with correct play, black will win eventually in even this line. I guess Kasparov didn't want to be tortured and humiliated, and just resigned rather than making Nepo prove he could win it.
|Aug-16-17|| ||OhioChessFan: <Jamboree> I thought the same thing. No question I'd try Rxh7+ before resigning.|
|Aug-16-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: So why aren't YOU guys playing in Louie then???|
I am quite sure all these guys would beat me a million times in a row.

Yes, after the incredible blunders in the endgames of many GM (one for all: Mark Taimanov in his 1971 match with Bobby Fischer) yr. suggestion is understandable.
However, after 38. Rxh7+ Kxh7 39. Qxg6+ Qxg6 40. Bxg6+ Kxg6 41. Kf2, Kf5 (and then Ke6-d6-c6-b5 etc.) White is helpless to defend his pawns.
I donít know how much was the remaining time of Nepo, but Kasparov definitely evaluated that it was more than enough to win an endgame with a piece up.
|Aug-16-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <AI2009>
Kasparov had few secs, Nepo few minutes AFAICR.
|Aug-16-17|| ||machak: <WorstPlayerEver> it wasn't the time pressure Kasparov still had 04m:16s on his clock when he made that blunder move (vs 08m:11s nep had)|
|Aug-16-17|| ||machak: and... blunder it is: ~ -1.00 to -7.00 according to stockfish|
|Aug-16-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <machak>
You are right. Thanks.
|Aug-16-17|| ||whiteshark: Nepo on beating Kasparov:
