  Once: Some days makes me despair - Trollish posts, my grandmaster was better than yours, FIRST! and "I solved a sunday puzzle cos I guessed the first move".

But other days I can see precisely why I come here. This game is astonishing. Kasparov's fantastic piece activity makes the white queen look like a spectator. And as the kibitzing shows, there are layers upon layers of complexity hidden in the notes.

The final position would make a humorous puzzle of the day - it's not easy to work out the win even after white resigns.

Thanks, CG, you've made me smile!

Aug-16-08  DarthStapler: I never said I solved them, just that I got the first move
Aug-16-08  Longbrow: One word: Relentless.
The eventual refutation of White's repeated attempts to find an effective home for his minor pieces. Black's insidiously strong Knight post at e4, which in seeming desperation White had to remove at all costs. An excellent display of piece activity, pressure, and initiative that I need to study more of-this is an instructive game for me.

<johnlspouge> Looks like you have a new named Mate to add to your collection :)

Aug-16-08  mistreaver: Garry played this when he was only 18 years old =)
Aug-16-08  Octal: This game was in the book "Attack with Mikhail Tal"
Aug-16-08  kevin86: A great victory by Kasparov! There are several mates in the variations-and brilliant at that. Ironic,since the game ends in resignation and not mate.

Since this is my 4444th message and the number 8 is in the news-I'll leave with this altrustic thought.

Please HELP Someone in need.

Aug-16-08  drpoundsign: WOW! If HE was working on Nuke fusion we'd be driving Deuterium cars. No more Saudi oil!!
Aug-16-08  popyseed: hi all, why white didn't try in 44Nxg2?

  Once: <popyseed> 44. Nxg2? Nd2+ 45. any Nxb3 and black is way ahead on material (exchange plus two pawns). Black also threatens Nc5 and the a pawn is not long for this world.
Aug-16-08  RandomVisitor: 38.f4 might hold for white.
Aug-16-08  D4n: I like this pun! Garry Kasparov played this game flawlessly!!

  HeMateMe: Wonderful tactics from the the 18 year old GK.
Jan-24-13  Eduardo Bermudez: Fantastic game by Kasparov !
May-07-14  sicilianhugefun: I really find a touch of Alekhine's style in The way Kasparov plays the game. The ideas are indeed heavy, subtle though brilliant...
May-08-14  RedShield: Heavy and subtitled is how I like my foreign films.
May-08-14  Howard: The first time I ever heard of this game is when Soltis briefly alluded to it in his monthly Chess Life column back in the 1980's.
Jan-10-15  abunuha: White could have saved the game with 48. Ng3. Am I missing something here ? Could someone please explain ? Thanks

  perfidious: <abunuba> See the winning line cited after the final move of this game.
Jul-14-16  clement41: The number of different and original mating patterns in variants as well as in the game is flabbergasting
Apr-08-17  maelith: BRILLIANT GAME.
Sep-11-18  Howard: Kasparov stated that 46.Qc8? made the win easier, but the position was still gone, all the same.
Aug-14-19  Patzer Natmas: Game featured in "New in Chess- Tactics Training- Garry Kasparov "

Solve for black on move 42...
