  Eggman: 30...Bc4 was pretty bad. Was this some kind of rapid play?
May-31-06  borisbadenoff: I don't know maybe someone else. All I could find out is that it was 2 game match between those 2. The other one was a draw.

I think this must have been a ultra blitz or some kind of exhibition. Because the moves are some times very strange even if those where blitz matches.

BTW that's something I always miss and what also for the future is a bad thing. PGN is nice but nobody notes the used timecontrols and for many games in databases the settings used are probably lost forever. Which ones were blitz (what kind of blitz) which ones blindfold, and so and so on.

Aug-22-06  Sularus: 30. RxR wins.
Mar-20-07  Troller: This was with normal time control of somewhere around 2hrs each + -1h at move 40. I was present at the game, which was staged at a beautiful castle. I think both players acknowledged that it was an exhibition game and played accordingly! In the second game, I recall Hansen had a winning position, but ultimately it was drawn.
Apr-25-10  JohnBarroso: If Kasparov were to make move 30, what is the likely candidate? I thought white bishop takes black bishop, check, pawn takes white bishop, then Kasparov would take the black rook and now if pown takes white queen then rook takes black queen, then the white knight would get ready to capture the passing pawn but I am not sure that a passing pawn is something he would want to put up with.
Apr-25-10  Alphastar: <JohnBarroso> Actually Kasparov can just take the rook on c1 immediately, 30. Rxc1. Because black's bishop is pinned to his king on g8 he cannot take the white queen. The other thing worth noting is that black cannot retrieve his rook with 30. ..Bxb3+, because the recapture 31. Qxb3+ comes with check.

So basically, black blundered a whole rook with his last move and therefore resigned immediately.
