|Jun-20-06|| ||ughaibu: When did you ever say that? If you cant back up this claim I will consider that to be a convincing demonstration that all your claims about Kasparov, Shirov, Kramnik and Topalov are equally unfounded.|
|Jun-20-06|| ||notyetagm: <ughaibu> It's a chess proverb that I go by that is correct an overwhelming percentage of the time, like in this game. If I use my two rooks and you do not use yours, then you lose.|
|Jun-20-06|| ||RookFile: So what was Karpov's mistake? 14.... Nh5?|
|Jun-20-06|| ||KingG: <Like I always say, whoever uses his rooks better in a game, wins.> Didn't Nunn say something like 'If there is a secret to Kasparov's success it's that he gets his rooks into play before his opponent'? I'll look up the exact quote later.|
|Jun-20-06|| ||offramp: A game of almost non-stop inventiveness and originality from Kasparov. Karpov must have been VERY tired at the end of this game.|
When people face he 4...Nd7, 5...Ngf6 version for the first time they often think that they should be able to smash black to ribbons in a few moves.
Most people soon find out that you can't do that - black's position is too solid. But Kasparov has frequently smashed black's position; but you have to be very inventive to do it.

I did not know about that Nunn quote. I just know that it seems like half of the decisive games I play over are won solely because one side has much more active rooks. Maybe I have been playing over too many Kasparov games ... :-)
|Jun-21-06|| ||SnoopDogg: <KingG> I think that was actually from Neil R McDonald when annotating Kasparov's famous win over Petrosian.|
Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1982
|Jun-21-06|| ||KingG: <SnoopDogg> Yes, thanks. I knew it was in one of those move-by-move books, but couldn't remember which one :-).|
|Jun-21-06|| ||notyetagm: <KingG> Well, it makes sense. The two rooks have a combined worth of more than a queen. You would not win many games if you left your queen out of play the whole game, like many players do with their rooks.|
|Jun-21-06|| ||alexandrovm: wow, Kasparov the machine!!! Incredible display of power over Karpov...great game!|
|Jun-21-06|| ||RookFile: I guess we still don't know what Karpov's mistake was. My guess is the ....Nh5 and ....Nxg3 maneuver.|
|Jun-30-06|| ||notyetagm: What a rook lift, 32 ♖h5-a5.
|Jul-01-06|| ||Brown: Perhaps his mistake can be found in a future game such as this one, where Karpov plays 9..a5 with an eventually comfortable game.|
Kasparov vs Karpov, 1994
|Jul-28-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: 17 ...Be8 conserves the bishop pair, but at the high price of neglecting the development of his R on h8. 17...Kb8 prepares ..Rdc8 clearing the point d8 for the other Rook|
|Apr-22-07|| ||Ulhumbrus: 26...a6 prevents 27 a6
35 Qa6+ begins a King hunt
Kasparov's comments suggest that the 5th rank was quite an asset for White's King's Rook, as useful as a file, in fact. Possibly Karpov had to play 17..g6 to force White's KR out of the 5th rank.
|Dec-29-07|| ||kingscrusher: I have video annotated this game here:-
|Jul-13-10|| ||whiteshark: <Ulhumbrus: ... < 17...Kb8 prepares ..Rdc8 clearing the point d8 for the other Rook>> |
Another idea of 17...Kb8 is to conserve the bishop pair with ...Bc8.
|Jan-05-11|| ||Greifi: It`s completly right that Karpov lost this game after 16. ... 0-0-0, everything would be unfair for normal players!|
|Jun-25-11|| ||joelsontang: How do I refute 8...Qxd4?|
|Jun-25-11|| ||amadeus: Nf3-Ne5 probably|
|Jun-25-11|| ||NARC: Of course, the end position was just tard luck by Kasparov. I had to write this because I wanted to illustrate a point elsewhere. Some people really think like that.|
|Sep-07-11|| ||serenpidity.ejd: Before Kasparov, I thought the Caro-Kann defence was a tough shell to crack. Even modern chess opening authors were one in saying that it is a solid defence and is good for those players who are opting for a draw.|
Not anymore. Kas has shown the chess world the vulnerability of the said defence. I must say that the chess genius has made it very unpopular.
|Sep-07-11|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: @<serenpidity.edj>
the funny thing is Garry was something of an expert on the Caro-Kann with...the black pieces! He wrote a book on the 4...Bf5 main line and adopted 1.e4 c6 in many games when he was a teenager. Seems hard to believe now, given his expertise in the Sicilians!
|Oct-03-11|| ||serenpidity.ejd: <SimonWebbsTiger> I did not know that Kas once favored the ck as black. Thanks for the info.
Anyway, this game is entitled: GREAT DEFENSE LOSES TO GREAT OFFENSE.
ANOTHER KANN BITES THE DUST(with apology to queen).
|Mar-12-12|| ||Robyn Hode: Karpov played a piece down the entire game. His king's rook never moved.|
