We were looking for double r's, not quadruple l's.

Your suggestion would be good for a game by Guillermo Llanos

  HeMateMe: in most of the capture/recaptures on e4 black wins with a Knight fork on f2 that results in winning the exchange or is up a piece after a Rook check on e1 picks off the Knight on b1.
Jul-24-17  bla bla: why not 35.kg1?
Jul-24-17  Howard: In response to that inquiry...take a look at White's queen, on d3 !

  thegoodanarchist: I would love to see the time on the players' clocks after moves 16 and 17.
Aug-27-17  Olavi: According to Kasparov, they had analyzed it up to 21...g5. Badly, of course, for they missed 12.Be3. Or is it still playable??!

  keypusher: Olavi -- Stockfish doesn't seem to think it's so bad for Black after Be3. Doesn't seem appetizing for Black though.
Oct-19-17  Damenlaeuferbauer: In my opinion the best game of the decade 1980 - 1989 and Kasparov's real "supreme creative achievement" (despite Kasparov - Topalov, Wijk aan Zee 1999 and others)!
Nov-17-17  amateur05: There is a very nice draft version of this: Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1975

Jun-26-19  Everybodychessnow: On move 28 after black has retreated his bishop to g6 white should've played bishop h3 to pin the knight to the rook then Kd3 to e5 29. Bxd7... kxd7 30. Qb2 is best continuation
