Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-05  dragon40: The 7th game from the 1995 WC MAtch.

With this game, the match equalled the most draws (7) to start a WC Match (tying with Karpov-Korchnoi from 1978). Kasparov might have been very, very slightly better in the final positon, but the match score certainly did not dictate playing on. The score after this game was 3.5-3.5

Nov-29-05  morphyvsfischer: 18...Nxd5 19 Ng5 Bxg5 20 Qh5 gives White a dangerous attack.
