Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-19-04  Whitehat1963: This looks like it's just getting interesting, why is it over? (Kasparov plays opening of the day.)
Jul-19-04  ConLaMismaMano: Why not 33.Rxd6?
Jul-19-04  Katten: Only knights can jump.
Jul-24-04  Jim Bartle: I think even if Beliavsky exchanges rooks he's going to lose the knight on d7 or the bishop on e6. Apparently K is a great expert on this variation of the English; Seirawan wrote he couldn't believe Beliavsky even let him play it.
Jul-24-04  Gravensteen: After 34...Rxd1 35. Rxd1 Black's efforts to prevent the loss of a piece permit White to win Black's Queenside pawns.
Jan-05-21  jkuzub: This game was featured in Lesson 3 of Garry Kasparov's MasterClass. He shows how 34. Nc7 forces Beliavsky to exchange rooks (34. ...Rxd1 35. Rxd1), and this in turn collapses black's position. Why? Because after the exchange, white has multiple options - such as Nxe6 or Bxb7 - and black can't stop all of them. It's over.
