|Mar-24-08|| ||sallom89: nice game, deserves attention...|
|May-08-08|| ||KingG: <Skylark> <<KingG> I think you're neglecting the line 22. Bc3, and although the position isn't winning for black, it isn't a draw yet ie 22. ... Bf3 23. Bd4+ Kf1 24. Bd7 and black can play for a win (although it's probably drawn).>|
Yes, but after 18.Bf2 Bxc3 19.Bxh4 Rxb1+ 20.Kf2 Bxd2 21.Rxb1 dxc5 22.Rb8 Bc3, there is no need to play the passive 23.Bf3, even though it still probably draws. Instead 23.Bg5, with the idea of Be3, and also threatening Bg4 looks good. The immediate 23.Bg4 isn't possible because of 23.Bg4 f5! 24.exf5 Be1+, winning the bishop, and at the next move threatening mate if the White King goes to the back rank.
In any case, exchanging down to this endgame would definitely have been the safer way to get a draw, even if White hadn't found all the best moves afterwards.
|May-27-08|| ||jessicafischerqueen: 16...Nxc4!!
Unbelievable tactical vision.
Kasparov surely calculated this out before offering his Knight-- after his c-file Rook invades, it is only apparently <en prise> twice in a row.
White cannot capture the Rook on c1 with his Knight, because the Knight is <OVERLOADED>- he must stay to protect the e-pawn or else
<Rxe4!> and White's position collapses on the spot.
Then <Kasparov> puts his Rook on prise again with
Again, the Rook is immune because the White Queen is <OVERLOADED>.
It cannot take the Rook on b2 because the Queen must stay to defend the DSB or else
<20...Bxd4+!!> and again White's position Collapses entirely.
So at the end of this brilliant Tactical sequence <Kasparov> is up the exchange, has the initiative, and has a better position.
Brilliant-- He was 13 years old at the time.
|Jul-08-08|| ||ToTheDeath: A great game, although I don't think it's quite on the level of Byrne-Fischer 1956-- for one thing the tactical motifs of a pawn sacrifice to plant a knight on d4 and tactics on the e1-h4 diagonal after Nxe4 were all well known resources against the Saemisch.|
Fischer's planting a knight en prise on a4 in that game and then sacing his queen were far more original and impressive.
|Sep-05-08|| ||dwavechess: Rybka agrees with Kasparov 76% and 71% with Lputian|
|Sep-11-08|| ||dwavechess: Down to 68% with rybka 3 w32 at 3 minutes per move for kasparov|

|Jul-29-09|| ||whatthefat: I seem to remember voting on and rather enjoying this pun. Nice work, whoever it was!|
|Jul-29-09|| ||lzromeu: Indeed. kasparov was a giant.|
|Jul-29-09|| ||kevin86: White thought that he saved the game with a double attack-but was countered.|
|Jul-29-09|| ||Arthur.J.Fizelbotom: <Smbat Gariginovich Lputian> "I'd like to buy a vowel..."|
|Jul-29-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 5...Nc6?!?!?!?!|

|Jul-29-09|| ||Vakus: Two Armenians play chess, is it surprising?|
|Jul-29-09|| ||Lightboxes: 17 moves for 24. ... dxc5!|
|Jul-30-09|| ||David2009: Lputian vs Kasparov, 1976 Perhaps 12 b5 (instead of the natural 12 dxc6) was necessary. What an amazing combination.|
|Feb-19-10|| ||Damianx: 19 n x R b1 queen must move b x b k x b & white looks great up a piece|
|Aug-10-10|| ||truthteller908: This is the first game that I've studied where I actually saw how a chess grandmaster can look so far ahead of the game and execute a plan that pays off 8 moves later with a tactical thunderbolt that gave him the edge. Its said that after 9.b4 Kasparov sank into deep thought for about 25 minutes mapping out his plans that eventually led to Nxe4. What a plan it was.|
|Dec-26-10|| ||knights: i think the turning point in the game is move 15 .... c5! Kasparov lured Lputian into a trap by moving his pawn onto c5. Lputian then thought that if he captured the c5 pawn, the b-file would be free for his rook and also, he would be ahead two pawns or so.|
For Lputian, the best response to Kasparov's move, 15. c5 would have been 16. Bxf6 Bxf6 17. a3. if he had done this he would have been one pawn ahead.
another mistake Lputian made was 28. Rb1 because by doing this, he took support off of the e pawn, so kasparov moved his bishop to capture the e pawn and advance into white's territory.
Lputian could have easily won if he hadnt made these few mistakes.
|Feb-19-12|| ||screwdriver: I thought it was a well played game. Kudos to Kasparov for playing so brilliantly.|
|Jan-16-16|| ||SpiritedReposte: Vintage Kasparov KID! Such energy and a long sustained initiative.|
|Mar-31-16|| ||MrJafari: Great Game! Kasparov sacrificed some times!! to gain win!|
