|Feb-08-08|| ||Open Defence: I thought Anand was probably supressing a smile as he made his move too|
|Feb-08-08|| ||jonnymalk: Anand is such a cool customer.|
|Feb-21-08|| ||Hot Logic: Imagine the audience reaction seeing Kasparov on stage - his eyes bulge and it looks like the move has physically knocked him back in his chair - this was a priceless moment.|
|Mar-11-08|| ||sentriclecub: Here is his facial reaction. Landman's video link seems to be broken.|
|Apr-04-08|| ||Landman: <sentriclecub> That's the same link I posted. ;)|
|Apr-17-08|| ||prinsallan: I love the genius that is Garry Kasparov, but he would probarbly be terrible at poker ^^|
|Aug-20-09|| ||VaselineTopLove: Love the video! If only all chess players were as emotive, then chess could find more TV sponsorsip - but that might give away the players' plans. Nonetheless, I think the players should just fake certain funny or weird emotions for the cameras every move or two, regardless of their true feelings about the position, so that non-chess playing audiences can derive some entertainment from these antics and sponsors might get more interested in relaying them on TV - pretty much making it a reality TV show...|
|Aug-16-11|| ||gaatab: i think they should call this game,
"blundering over god's cuntry..."
|Oct-05-11|| ||Everett: Kasparov certainly created some complications afterward. Any chance of his survival after 33...Qxe3?|
|Nov-12-11|| ||eyalbd: Now in HD :-)
Kasparovs blunder move is at 4:53
|Jun-05-12|| ||kingscrusher: Fun rapid game - great video there!|
|Jun-05-12|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here:
|Jun-05-12|| ||Jacob Arnold: I'm not familiar with this variation of the Najdorf, so can someone explain why the Bishop moves three times in a row here?|
|Dec-09-12|| ||dumbgai: Wow what a blunder, instead of 33...Qxe3?? simply 33...Nxe3 34. Qxe3 Qxe3 35. Rxe3 0-0, followed by ...f5 and black should win.|
|Dec-08-15|| ||dannygjk: This was a Blitz game people stop saying it was Rapid.|
|Feb-22-16|| ||vasparov19: it was a blitz game|
|May-31-18|| ||Brain Gremlin: May-31-18 Brain Gremlin: This was the Credit Suisse 96 rapidplay tournament. Anand & Kasparov tied 1-1 in the final,then played a blitz match playoff. This was the final game. Victory for Anand in game and tournament. No wonder Kasparov looked sick.|

|Jun-18-18|| ||Korora: <33...♕xe3??>|
So I can truthfully claim to have played as well as Garry Kasparov.
|Mar-19-19|| ||parmetd: Kasparov just listed 33... Qxe3?? as the worst blunder of his career: https://video.newyorker.com/watch/c...|
|Mar-19-19|| ||Count Wedgemore: 33...f5 and Black is almost winning by force. After taking on e3 with the knight, Black can move his queen to d4 (that square would no longer be attacked by White's bishop after ...Nxe3), which enables ...e4, and an overwhelming position. That protected passed e4-pawn looks deadly. Black should win.|
|Mar-20-19|| ||Momentum Man: Hi Count.
33...f5 doesn't look winning to me, but one of my weaknesses is evaluating the strength of pawn moves to their 4th or 5th rank.
I like to think I would have seen the obvious double attack for White if he can put his queen on g4, as I have studied tactics and the double attack is foundational.
In the position, I prefer 33...O-O for Black, preparing for the ...f5 push.
|Mar-20-19|| ||Count Wedgemore: <Momentum Man> 33...0-0 looks good also. Perhaps you're right that it's even better for Black than ...f5 right away. That way he'll get his rook behind the f-pawn before he starts pushing it. He should not wait very long before playing ...f5, I think. But perhaps not immediately. No need to rush.|
Anyway, White is forced to accept some exchanges on the e-file, and if the queens are swapped, all the better for Black who with the protected passed e-pawn should be winning the ensuing endgame.
But, of course, this never came to pass because of the awful 33...Qxe3?, missing White's Qg4 tactic. Instead, 33...Nxe3 would be perfectly fine, and Black would still be much better.
But yeah, perhaps 33...0-0 is best. I don't think it's too slow.
|Mar-21-19|| ||Momentum Man: Thanks <Count >. I like your kind of “qualitative “ annotation. More helpful than a quantitative computer line|
|Apr-28-19|| ||chancho: Kasparov: <It [losing this game] cost me victory in the final but it also left kind of a memory scar... it's just something that is sitting there.
Even after 20 years, I cannot look at this position without some sort of pain.>|
