Sep-14-14  talwnbe4: According to Stockfish, 23.c5 isn't some kind of brilliant move and Kaspy should have played 23..dxc5 with an even game. 23..Rxc5 just leads to a double attack against b6 and d6. 23. c5 Rxc5 24. Nc4 1.5 The knight threatens b6 and d6
Jul-22-15  Chessman1504: It's amazing how Kasparov, perhaps the greatest player, gets mated here. Ivanchuk is such a great player, and I would have loved to see him become world champion around the Kramnik-Anand era.
Sep-24-15  DanielHoseano: Another great game by GM Ivanchuk

  ChessHigherCat: <peteg000: Can someone please explain the meaning of 12. Kh1> The intention was probably to get the K off the open g file, enable Rg1 (as he played on move 20) while at the same time getting the king off the diagonal where black could eventually pin the Q with Bc5 or force a trade of queens with Qc5 if white advances the f pawn. Do I win a chocolate easter bunny?
Oct-12-17  uniqueid: One of my favorite Chucky games, also one of the best annotations by kingscrusher - https://youtu.be/2PcaoAZZ6Rc
Oct-12-17  Olsonist: This is such a beat down but if you look at Chessgames Notable list, it doesn't make the top ten of the 90s and two other Chucky games do (well, he lost one of those.) If you beat down the reigning world champion and arguably the GOAT, that should rank. Sure, Gary's Immortal ranks higher but this was a great game.
Oct-12-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: I got this up to the "Two pawns for the exchange plus a strong attack" point.

If it weren't for White's bishop covering h6, this would have been a Monday-easy puzzle. I examined a variety of ways to solve that problem directly, but eventually realized that Qf1 was a defense for White against almost any non-forcing line, before or after the exchange sacrifice at g2 as the case might be.

So then I locked back in on the first two moves of the actual solution, and eventually examined ... Bxg3 as a way to get rid of the pesky e3 bishop. :)

Oct-12-17  AlicesKnight: At move 36 Black's "strategic movement towards the rear" (Gunsberg, on a Steinitz game) is noteworthy. Black's territory is shrunk bit by bit like a game of Go.
Oct-12-17  paavoh: <MissScarlett: <The Garry Handling Show>>

That suggestion was better IMO than the current pun.

Oct-12-17  ChatGrognon: Brilliant game indeed!

"Vacuum-packed development" -- you don't expect that to happen to Kasparov.

  HeMateMe: Geez, just very rare to see Kasparov tied up in knots like that, really beaten in the opening.
Mar-04-18  luhur: this is first time i saw kasparov been checkmated.
Jun-09-18  Toribio3: I love this game! Ivanchuk is really a genius.

  ChessHigherCat: I wonder whether K overlooked the possibility of 29. g4? It would have been absolutely fatal if K hadn't had 29. Rc5, and even then it was pretty dismal.
Mar-06-19  Whitehat1963: GK in the box!
Mar-18-19  HeadCrunch: This is an superb win by Ivanchuk he plays a blinder here slowly crushing the great Kasparov until no life remains in the tragic black pieces! Amazing!
Apr-26-19  The17thPawn: Having relinquished the bishop pair by move 9, Chucky hops his Knights all over the board. Showing complete disdain for Gary's efforts to stop him. Would never have believed it if I hadnt played through it.
