Mar-31-04  admeyer: Interesting game here
May-21-04  InspiredByMorphy: 41.Nxf3+! is curtains.
Jul-26-04  JoshuaJ8588: The best reply to the Samisch Variation of the King's Indian Defense.
Jan-13-10  shamat1: i cant understand 12 d5
May-26-11  Pygeum Lycopene: Since 33.Bd3 turned out really bad, wondered what 33.Bc5 would look like. Here's the mess, ah, i mean analysis. 33.Bc5-Nb3 34.Qf2-Qc1 35.Bb3-ab 36.Bd4-Bd5 37.Bg7-Qc7 38.Kg1-Kg7 39.Qd4-Kg8 40.ed-Qc1+ 41.Kf2-b2.

Feb-18-12  screwdriver: Not bad. Looks like Kasparov would've gotten another queen if white took on f3.
Apr-15-12  Garech: Superb game; great dynamics.


Apr-15-12  balzarius: I subscribe,this was a fascinating and lively game.

This looks pretty even after 16. Bxg7 Qxd2+ 17. Rxd2 Kxg7 although Black has a 3:2 Pawn majority on the Queenside while White is saddled with a bad Bishop.

White was probably expecting to outplay the teenager Kasparov.

Nov-26-19  MrJafari: <tpstar>: thank you for your (visual) explanation...Now I see and see!
