  nasmichael: 090604--Having seen this game for the first time, inspired by an article for FernSchach Intl, I am astounded by the hit-hard style of Kasparov. Kamsky has returned to the chess scene, and this fight here by him will be good for me to compare with his current games. Admittedly I played quickly through it the few times I have looked over this game, and I am now encouraged to take my board out and play through it in more detail. Thanks to the contributors for putting this game in the database.

Comments on the play choices?

Sep-06-04  alexandrovm: Kasparov gradually converts his advantage over Kamsky, a real nice game by Garry. I'll check this game later with Fritz
Jan-22-05  ArmyBuddy: Bye bye to black's rook when 35 ...pxp. 36. Qe7+ Kg8 37. QxR+
Jan-13-06  subedai: Interesting the way Kasparov favours creating activity over getting his pieces out for the sake of it.

  whiteshark: <11. Bf2!> Moving this piece twice archieves the goal of driving away Black's queen; this takes priority over development.
Jul-22-09  pericles of athens: can anyone explain 10. a3 for me? I don't get it.
Jul-22-09  Mazettakos: The idea behind the move 10.a3 is to control the b4 square, so after 10..Qxb2? 11.Na4 , black queen is trapped
Jul-22-09  Ghausc1: It looks like 19..g5 would allow black to trade off rooks and trade the b2 pawn for the h5 pawn. Is this possible?
Dec-02-10  goldenbear: Why not 12.Nxg4 exactly?

  Sastre: If 12...Nexg4, then <13.Rxg4 Nxg4 14.Qxg4 e5 15.Nf5 g6 16.Nd5 Qc6 17.Nf6+ Kd8 18.Qh4>. If 18...gxf5,then 19.Bb6+ Qxb6 20.Nd5+.
Dec-04-10  goldenbear: <Sastre> Thanks.
