Yeah,2 thums up! And pants down ;)

Wish they would play the KIDīs more frequently.

Nov-26-16  Saniyat24: Black may have given the move 37...Kh8 according to www.ajschess.com/lifemasteraj/best_games.html
Mar-04-17  The Kings Domain: Probably Yusupov's best achievement. Toppling a young Ivanchuk in his prime with masterly play was quite the feat.

Ah yes! <A young Ivanchuk in his prime>!

I remember those days very well. Ivanchuk used to walk around tournament halls wearing a big pink rosette emblazoned with these words:

<UKRAINIAN GRANDMASTER
GUARANTEED
99 44/100% PRIME!>

The rosette was stapled to his butt-arks. Ouch!

Apr-05-17  Conrad93: Ivanchuk wasn't in his prime. His best chess was played in the late 2000's.

Really? At the time of this match he was 22, ranked 2nd in the world, had won Linares (including a victory over Kasparov), had defeated his earlier round opponent (Yudasin?) 4.5-0.5, and was generally considered to be the biggest threat to Kasparov.

Apr-11-17  Conrad93: He was rated No. 2 in the world in 2007 as well. That was when he reached his peak rating of 2787. He has improved since then.

  saffuna: Remember it was more or less a rapid game, under tremendous pressure, and the coup in Moscow was going on at the same time.

  saffuna: I'm saying it was difficult to play their best. They both said that afterward, as did the other USSR players in Brussels (Gelfand and Karpov).
Jul-11-17  Saniyat24: The Black King should be on g8 and not on h8 in the penultimate stage...here is a complete analysis of the game by GM Yasser Seirawan...

  ChessHigherCat: On move 21, we see a splendid example of "Yusupov's Gun" with Bishop-Knight-Queen-Knight perfectly aligned on the g file preparing to give a dose of Cancer in Uranus.

Not to Saturn, or one of the other planets?

  malt: Nice move 32.Nf2! and 33.Nh3
Jan-03-18  saintdufus: Yusupov's 28...Rg6!! reminds me of Spassky's 16th move in Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960, 16.Nf7!!, letting the opponent take a whole rook *with check*.
Jan-04-18  morfishine: Incredible game, a pity it was a playoff game at less than classical time controls

The game continuation was forced, as 30.Nce7 loses to the clearance idea 30....Qh1+ 31.Bxh1 Nh2+ and mate next move.

30. Nce7 Qh1+ 31. Bxh1 Nh2 mate

Sorry, still not mate. 32. Ke1 Rg1 is mate.
