Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-06  SniperOnG7: It is interesting to see Kasparov solving the ...Nh5's problem by 16...Qf6 follwed by 17...Nf4. It is only after this that Kasparov starts the typical ...f7-f5 plan.

  ToTheDeath: Dreev missed 33.Bb6! Qc4 43.Nd2

Was this a blitz game? Sort of sloppy on both sides.

Premium Chessgames Member
  HAPERSAUD: dreev didnt miss that move heres the continuation 33.bb6 qc4 34.nd2 34... qxf1+ 35.nxf1 nxb3 36.qxb3 rc1! 37.kg1 bc3! 38.qc4 ree1 39.kf2 rxf1+! with more than enough compensation, if dreev had taken the bait he would have fallend for a very deep trap set by kasprov. i dint use a computer to analyze this, did you <ToTheDeath>?

  ToTheDeath: The issue isn't whether Black has compensation after 33.Bb6!- it's that it's the only move that doesn't lose for White. Furthermore your line is not forced, White can improve with 37.Qd3 with a probable draw as Black's king is too exposed.
Nov-02-10  hedgeh0g: Looks very blitzy to me. "2.3" probably refers to the time control.
Apr-15-12  Garech: If you get a knight on e4 you always crush King's Indian players, right?

Not when it's Kasparov, apparently!



Apr-15-12  balzarius: This was a 5-minutes blitz game from the PCA Grand Prix rapid tournament Moscow 1996,according to my database.
