An odd comment to make, considering the database gives his dates of games as 1981-2005, i.e. about 25 years worth of games - a good career. Plus he has games recorded for this year so he's not finished.
He has, however, taken the time to write a major work of analysis of Kasparov's best games. Read about it here:
|Jan-25-06|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: This is a player with one of the highest percentages of "short draws" (draws reached in less than 20 moves). According to a calculation, an astonishing 41% of his games were reached by short draws!|
Kramnik only has 16%, so what are all the Kramnik-bashers thinking??

His two volume set on Kasparov is great as well.

Happy 49th birthday GM Igor Stohl. :D
|Sep-27-13|| ||waustad: He is still active in team tournaments, playing in Czech, Slovak and sometimes Austrian and German leagues. Since he publishes with Gambit Books, some of his work is available via the Gambit Books app on the iPad, notably the Kasparov Best books.|
Apart from the team tournaments, one he played in is the admirably named: http://www.365chess.com/tournaments...

That is a strange fact. Another player worth looking at would be the late
Istvan Bilek was also not inclined to overexertion later in his career.

|Sep-28-15|| ||eternaloptimist: <MissScarlett> The sweatshirt looks tacky also. It's funny how much styles change over the years.|
