  GrahamClayton: Kamsky wanted to play 19...0-0-0, not realising that he had forfeited the right to castle with 16...♔f7. He was forced to move his King instead.

note that Kamsky moved his king 16...Kxf7 and 17...Ke8 and attempted here with 19.0-0-0 :))

<For here the ex-Russian - as though it was perfectly normal - castled queenside! When his amazed opponent had explained that this was strictly forbidden, there was nothing left but 19...Kd8>

- Robert Timmer (from his book Startling Castling)

Apr-20-15  Howard: Yes, New in Chess also referred to this game. Kamsky had forgotten that his king had already moved (twice).
