Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-23-05  KingG: Nice tactic at the end by Kasparov. A future puzzle perhaps?
May-26-07  timhortons: if u have a choice of between mate and winning the queen,take the queen...kas wait for the final moment till he improve his position and exchange pieces
May-26-07  rookattack: why didnt kasparov take the pawn on e6 on move 22?
May-26-07  timhortons: 22.qxe6 will give a black a reply of qd4 and that would give him a play..these is discussed in andrews soltis book "turning advantage into victory in chess"Qoute in evaluating less dynamic position, u should place great deal of emphasis on the activity of opponent pieces. if they are fairly passive u can afford to take youre time and improve youre position in small ways unqoute
May-31-09  jmboutiere: 21Qe3 aiming at the e6 pawn, but for the moment Kasparov is more concerned with preventing the black queen generating any activity along the d-file.22Qe6?Qd4 and black has distinct counterplay on the dark squares. 23.Qxe6?? 23...Re8.Qxd7 Rxe1 Kh2Nxd7 wins a rook for Black (Chess Succes planning after the opening - Neil McDonald - 2007)
May-31-09  jmboutiere: 24Qe5 prevents 24...e5 and 25...Qd4

  harrylime: Yeah very instructive.I like this game because it's sooo Capa like. Kasparov reduced Huebner to almost impotence with very simple and clear moves..

22.Qe6 looks obvious but it lets black back in the game.. the instructiveness is in how Gazza shuns this and just builds up the pressure..Knowing black is reduced to being a spectator. This is a common trait in Kasparov's games.

  keypusher: In Informant after 26....c5, which looks like a mistake to me, Kasparov writes [26....Rf8 27.Rd2! with the idea b4 ]

Anyone know what he has in mind?

Aug-21-13  gilbav: I suppose he meant that after 26....Rf8 Black threatens Qxf2+ or Nxg4.
Apr-30-16  clement41: I love the unexpected 31 Qxf8+!, outsmarting Hübner
Apr-04-18  clement41: 31 Qxf8+ is reminiscent of 30 Qxe8+ here in this Botvinnik game:
