Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-24-03  Helloween: Someone should have directed Mr. Kasparov's attention to Black's plan of defense in this game prior to his final round encounter with Deep Blue in 1997.
Oct-24-03  BeautyInChess: 44 Rg6 looks better than f6 to me. Seems to give white some chances. If black were to trade
Oct-24-03  Kid Icarus: 44.Rg6 is in fact tougher than 44.f6, but Black wins with the following technique -

1.Rg6 Rxg6 2.fxg6 Rxg6 3.g4 Rf6+ 4.Kg3 b3 5.h5 Ka7!(triangulation) 6.Kg2 Ka6!(not 6...Rf4? and White has good drawing chances)7.Kg3 Kb7 8.g5 Rf5 9.Kg4 Rf2 10.g6 Rxb2 11.Kf3 Rb1 12.g7 Rg1 13.h6 b2 14.h7 b1Q 15.g8Q Qd3+ 16.Kf4 Rf1+ 17.Ke5 Qe3+ 18.Kd6 Qxd4+ 19.Ke7 Qf6+ 20.Kd7 Rd1+ 0-1

Jan-18-04  Shadout Mapes: 10.Bf4 is better, taking control over the b8-h2 diagnal before black can.
Aug-30-05  Averageguy: Here Granda-Zuniga shows excellent defensive skill.
Sep-12-05  alexandrovm: <Helloween: Someone should have directed Mr. Kasparov's attention to Black's plan of defense in this game prior to his final round encounter with Deep Blue in 1997.> That's nonsense, white played very badly, not near what deep blue played. First of all deep blue played Bf4, not letting black king to scape thru there. Second of all, white just loses all his strong passed panws later in the game, a computer would have never lost them, like in move 44 or move 49.
Sep-12-05  RookFile: Well, Deep Blue played better, of course, than Wolff did. But, games like this show that before the Deep Blue vs. Kasparov game, the evaluation of this line wasn't clear. Some may have preferred black.
Sep-12-05  alexandrovm: Interesting analysis <rookfile>, anyhow <10.Bf4...> seems a better move for white here. Prevents the king to run away, prepares a centralized rook, etc. Nice "quiet" move.
Sep-12-05  RookFile: I agree with this. Wolff had a plan
here involving winning black's queen's bishop, by locking it out with c5. But.... Granda-Zuniga found an antidote to this.
Sep-02-06  Inf: <Here Granda-Zuniga shows excellent defensive skill> yes but not of a big surprise. Granda is quiet the man when the berlin comes up too...
