Aug-26-04  Bobsterman3000: Ouch. The mobility of Kasparov's queen just killed black here...
Nov-12-05  steamroller: killed white u mean.
Nov-12-05  SnoopDogg: About a year late on that <steam> :-).
Jan-29-07  lopezexchange: A lot of missed chances: White missed a win on his 26th turn. Instead on 26.Bf1 white had a forced win with 26.cxd6,cxd6; 27.Nc7,Nhf6; 28.Nxa8,Nxe4; 29.Rc7,Qd8; 30.Qa2,Qxa8; 31.Qxa8,Rxa8; 32.Nh4 1-0

After that White threw away a draw with the lemon 43.Qe2; 43.Nc4 gives a draw. Then Black missed a few 47...Qe7 when 47...e4 ends it immediately (also 47...Qd4) then white throws another lemon with 48.Qa2 (QxQ makes a fight out of it, though Black is on top and should still win). Then Black throws a lemon with 48...Qxd5 (Qd3 ends it) then.... I stopped here. Too much lemonade. :-))

Were the players short of time? This game has more than the usual share of lemons. Anyone has the time logs? I wonder how much time they had left on the clock.

  plang: Pretty sure this was played with a quick time limit (and may have been blitz).
Feb-03-07  lopezexchange: Thanks, plang. :-))

But is it for sure, or just a hunch?

  plang: According to Informant # 53 there was a knockout match - tournament in Paris in November, 1991. Games were 25 minute per person. Kasparov defeated Gelfand 2-0 in quarterfinals. Timman defeated Kasparov 1.5 - 0.5 in final.
Feb-15-07  lopezexchange: Much obliged, plan. Thanks.
