  OlimpBase: One might be fairly surprise to discover that this win gave the Soviets yet another gold and deprived England of their first Olympic gold, unreachable until today. I don't believe actually White put up enough resistance, although the game looks more or less balanced along.
Sep-13-04  Giancarlo: What do you expect? Garry was just to good for the guy.
Jun-02-18  Howard: Interesting final position, at least.
Dec-10-18  Howard: Kasparov claims in the Informant that after 18 moves, he already had a won game !
