  plang: Typical Kasparov win. Continually challenge his opponent until he makes an error.

Didn't really refute opening, but didn't make me want to play it either.

Feb-26-07  pencuse: Final position is similar to 24th game of Kasparov-Karpov World Chess Championship Match 1987: Kasparov vs Karpov, 1987
May-24-12  Poisonpawns: Black is definitely equal after 15..Nd6 and after 16.Bb3 Nf5 17.Qd2 Why not the simple Nxd4?

Black is definitively good here.

Finally 29..Nh7 is just a blunder,probably a famous Ivanchuk time trouble blunder, 29..Rc8 and black can keep playing.

Apr-17-16  dehanne: Black was fine until the losing blunder 29...Ph7?

Instead for example 29...Rc8 or 29...Qb8.

An amusing note is that something like 19...Bg7?? loses immediately to 20.Bxf7+
