Jun-11-15  diagonal: Marvelous photo by Gerhard Hund from that game at the World Junior Chess Championship in Dortmund 1980:

btw: Kasparov's softdrink <Sinalco> is an abbreviation of the Latin <sine alcohole = without alcohol>:

That's really good, <diagonal>. Thanks very much! The position on both demo board and game board is this one, after 20.Nf3-e5.

There are no less than 4 cans of Sinalco on the table; three are on Karolyi's side but I think one of the gold cans is unopened and is intended for Kasparov.

Oddly, both players are using straws! 17-year-olds!

Kasparov has placed his straw wrapper in the otherwise unused ashtray. An ashtray - that brings back memories. But this is at a junior tournament. How many smokers were there?

Karolyi is wearing a stylish but Harry-Hillishly large pink/white & blue-striped shirt.

Kasparov wears a green roll-neck jumper. He is also wearing jeans. I believe jeans were frowned upon by Soviet authorities in the USSR of the 1980s. But Kasparov is in Germany so he doesn't give a toss.

Kasparov also sports what I believe was unkindly termed a jewfro. The epitome of the jewfro was John Turturro's super-excellent bouffant in the kinematographic feast "Barton Fink".

There is a sign behind Kasparov. "Quiet, please".

On the demo board, on f5, there is a ectoplasmotic manifestation which is probably Kasparov's orgonic ether-double sending waves of hesitancy-energy to his unsuspecting opponent. See Book of OAHSPE, page 75.

Jun-11-15  widjaja70: I believe Black takes a draw too early. After 28.... Rxf1+ 29. Kxf1 Ba6+ 30. Ke1 Qb5! Black has some initiative.
Jun-11-15  diagonal: haha, four cans of Sinalco on the table, indeed, <Offramp>, I award you with the <Sinalco Barnstar> for your social studies about chess fashion, food & beverages in the 1980's!

Picture (courtesy of Gerhard Hund) showing the three medalists of the Junior World Chess Championship in Dortmund (19th) 1980 at the closing ceremony:

<Morovic> (bronze due to tie-break as shared 3rd - 5th, later the first Chilean grandmaster) - <Kasparov> (gold, winning outright in dominant supremacy, what else) - and yes, the guy on the right wing (no politics, please, the ed.) is young <Short> (silver)

Crosstable:, just to avoid 'unnecessary' controversies: it would be not appropriate to make any comments on the further activities of the player on final position 8
