Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-07  prinsallan: This game is annotated by Kasparov in the book: "The test of time". Excellent reading if anyone is interested.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Kaspy's first win over a GM, who unwisely played a dubious opening.
May-26-08  ToTheDeath: Fascinating battle- but the game score is incorrect. The last move according to Test of Time was 57.g3! after which Lutikov resigned- the point being that Black was hoping for the trap 57.Ke2 Nf4+ 58. Kf3?? c2 59.Rc5 Nd3 60.Rxc2 Ne1+ and it is Black who wins.
Dec-25-08  Karpova: After 11.Qe2 Bruce Pandolfini looks at 11...Qb6 - why didn't Black play it as the ♕ would attack two pawns (the reader shall find it out)?

11...Qb6 12.0-0-0 0-0-0 13.Qxe6 Qxd4 [see diagram]

14.Qxc6+ bxc6 15.Ba6#

The famous Boden mate - R Schulder vs S Boden, 1853 - sure, basic chess tactics but always nice to see.

Nov-20-10  laskereshevsky: .....< Every player remember with appreciation same particular games and tournaments.

I'll remember for all the life the Minsk's tournament.

Here i made my chess master norm. And for all the life I'll not forgot my game with A. Lutikov, the first with a "living" GM.>

Garry Kasparov

May-12-11  theagenbiteofinwit: It was kind of a dick move in Test of Time where Gary gives exactly one ! to black for developing all his pieces. This game actually made me admire Lutiko for not falling into all the traps GK laid for him.
Oct-01-13  choldax: After 49. Rb1, why not 49. .. Nc3 forking the rook and the queen?
Oct-01-13  choldax: Ok I see it now. Qa8 threatens mate.
Oct-01-13  Nerwal: <After 49. Rb1, why not 49. .. Nc3 forking the rook and the queen?>

49. ♖b1 ♘c3 50. ♕f3 Δ ♕xf8# and now :
50... ♗g7 51. ♖b8+
50... ♕a3 51. ♖b8
50... ♕d6 51. ♘f6+

Oct-01-13  choldax: What do you think about 49. ♖b1 ♕c8? Also guards againts ♖b7. Maybe black has a fighting chance here.
Oct-01-13  abcpokerboy: What do you think about 49. Rb1 Qc8? Also guards againts Rb7. Maybe black has a fighting chance here.

Qxe6+ any Qxd5.

Oct-01-13  choldax: One last question.
49. ♖b1 ♗d6 50. ♕xe6+ ♔g7 51.♕xd5 ♕a2 This position seems drawish doesn't it?
Jul-24-15  EQUILIBRIUM: 5... dxe5 6. dxe5 Bxf3 7. Qxf3 Nxe5 8. Qxb7 Qc8 (8... e6 9. Bb5+ Nfd7 10. Bf4) 9. Qxc8+ Rxc8 10. Ba6

  ChessCoachClark: This game was used in the Wikipedia article about the Skewer, at It only mentions the threat of a Skewer after 36. Bf4. However, an Absolute Skewer does occur in actual play at 42. Bd6+.

  HeMateMe: age 15, Kaspy defeats a real grandmaster, 2550 player. The live pawn was a real weapon.
Feb-06-21  MrJafari: I'm out of time and comment maybe like Black!
