Apr-28-05  notyetagm: White resigns since he has no good defense to the <Arabian mate> threat of 44 ... ♔xf3 and 45 ... ♖g4#.
Apr-28-05  RookFile: 44. Ra7 is kind of interesting.
44.. Kxf3 45. Ra3+ Kxe4 46. Re3+,
hoping for stalemate. So, black
plays 46.... Kf5, meeting 47. Re5+
with 47.... dxe5. Bad news! Now
white can move a pawn.
Apr-21-06  oao2102: Interesting game. First instance of the Bayonet attack being used against Kasparov's KID in the database.
Nov-10-06  tz061: great games by gata kamsky.
Jan-05-07  Aseem: <great games by gata kamsky.> huh??
Nov-19-10  BobCrisp: One mistake is all it takes. <Kamsky> had to play 33.Kh5 with an even game. When the opponent has doubled rooks on the 7th rank, it's not easy to appreciate that the real threat lies in the opposite corner of the board.
May-18-12  LoveThatJoker: "33...?" Black to play and win, would make an excellent Saturday/Sunday puzzle.

  FSR: I was about to make a comment similar to <LoveThatJoker>'s. I'm thinking more Friday/Saturday, but in any case definitely should be a POTD.

  wtpy: Puzzle in financial Times today from move 34. Interestingly Kasparov misplayed this and missed a much stronger 35th move.

Solve for black on move 33...

@wtpy- what move should be played on 35...?

  wtpy: Patzer, I meant 34th and the move is Ne5. White can only postpone the maneuver Ra8-h8 which mates.
