|Dec-29-04|| ||Whitehat1963: So it's agreed that Miles missed an opportunity for the win after 15...Kf6. And 16. Bxa6 is probably the best immediate reply. I just have the feeling that Morphy would have found some crazy sacrifice (like say 16. Bg5) at this point that would have given him an insurmountable advantage -- more than a pawn anyway. |
|Feb-06-06|| ||Whitehat1963: Why does Kasparov allow 11. Nxb5? Why not the immediate axb5?|
|Feb-06-06|| ||aw1988: 12. exf6...|
|Feb-06-06|| ||Jim Bartle: This was a training match in preparation for Karpov. I think Kasparov was just trying out some new ideas.|
|Nov-06-06|| ||I3illieJoe: I humbly suggest chessgames.com to make this games game of the day. I think it shows Kasparov at his best.|
|Aug-08-08|| ||Jim Bartle: How to play against 16. Bxa6?|
|Mar-21-09|| ||vonKrolock: Not an easy question 16...♘d3+ 17.♔e2 ♘c5 fails to 18.♕c6! (with idea of ♕f3 etc) Other candidate moves are 16...♗c5 and 16...h6, but it seems that then black will simply not be able to win back the piece without giving away the exchange with not enough , I mean compensation|
|May-09-09|| ||Saul.Richman: If I was forced to shift my king to f6 by Move 15, I think it's most unlikely I would have notched up the full point 14 moves later.|
Quite remarkable performance from Kasparov.
IIRC, Tony never ever won a game against him, but then, not many did...
|Jan-03-10|| ||falso contacto: I stand for what I just said.
Dont like black side after 11. ... Ng4
|Jul-25-15|| ||offramp: Both queen's bishops were captured, unmoved, on their home squares.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||andrewjsacks: Just one more game that shows what a genius Garry was.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||offramp: <I3illieJoe: I humbly suggest chessgames.com to make this games game of the day. I think it shows Kasparov at his best.>|
Your wish has been granted, I3illieJoe.
Sadly, I3illieJoe gave up waiting for his wish four years ago, his plea to chessgames unanswered until today.
The pun is based on Marco Polo's description of a peacock, which he first encountered in India in 1539.
"He strutteth & fretteth his hour upon the stage, a monster with a thousand eyes and from another age."
|Dec-11-16|| ||AlicesKnight: <Saul.Richman: If I was forced to shift my king to f6 by Move 15, I think it's most unlikely I would have notched up the full point 14 moves later.> Exactly - extraordinary counterpunching. The advance of the Black QP to d2 has 19th-century echoes.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||Pablouned: 18.Bg5 +|
|Dec-11-16|| ||Pablouned: hxg5 hxg5+ Kxg5
|Dec-11-16|| ||Eggman: The title of this game ought to have been "The Monster With 28,000 Eyes," for that was Miles' comment.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||scormus: 15 .... Kf6, a great Kasparovian move.
Not convince by the pun, it was the N on e5 controlled the game so I'd prefer "The Night has a Thousand Eyes"
|Dec-11-16|| ||morfishine: <18.Bg5+> is much better for White|
|Dec-11-16|| ||ColeTrane: Great game, Kasparov is the GOAT, but I just dont get this pun..... On so many levels.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||mike1: 18 Bg5+ hxg5 19. hxg5+ Kxg5 20. Rxh8 Bb4+ 21. Qxb4 Qxh8 is winning for black|
|Dec-11-16|| ||catlover: <offramp> Thanks for explaining the pun. I was clueless. |
As I was playing through the game, around move 16 I thought, "How in the world could Kasparov win with his king so exposed?"
|Dec-11-16|| ||morfishine: <mike1: 18 Bg5+ hxg5 19. hxg5+ Kxg5 20. Rxh8 Bb4+ 21. Qxb4 Qxh8 is winning for black> Its a lot more tedious and White is not down a piece, so its clearly better|
|Dec-11-16|| ||StupidQuestion: Why not 14.Nc7+, then grab the rook?|
|Dec-11-16|| ||mcaskin: <StupidQuestion> Taking the bishop comes with another check. Black can take the bishop on d3 with check if white takes the rook.|
|Dec-11-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: I read somewhere that Miles said after the game <I thought I was playing the World Champion, not a monster with 27 eyes>.|
And this tale grew taller on down the line, with it eventually being <1000> eyes instead of 27.
Reminds me of the creature in The Simpsons Movie.
