Jun-11-02  refutor: this was a spectacular queen sac (probably all theory and analyzed at home)...after seeing a game like this i'm afraid to start playing the najdorf :)
Jul-05-03  Alchemist: When you possess the skill of Kasparov three peices are better than one. He has several games where he exchanges his queen for a favorable endgame.
Jul-05-03  caseyclyde: But after 20. Nxa1 he only has 2 pieces for the queen.
Aug-23-03  biencastrojr: A complicated game which i believed white still has chances of surviving after 23...Kxf7
Sep-30-05  alexandrovm: wow, Kasparov, what a genious!
Oct-01-05  csmath: Yup, this is a book example of Najdorf, it seems already forgotten but another masterpiece for Kasparov collection.

It teaches you that in Najdorf you don't really need to castle, you don't even need too many pawns around the king, and after all you don't even need the queen either. But you need to be Kasparov. :-))

May-31-06  spirit: we should rename the Najdorf...may be "the GAZZA"
Jul-19-06  Bufon: This is incrediblel, it shows all Kasparov brilliancy under the lines of his beloved Nadjorf.
Jul-20-06  ARTIN: Is 28. Nxd6 forced?
Oct-15-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: just a thought.......if you had to play kasparov the next day,can you resign the night before?
Nov-04-07  sallom89: what a great game!
controlling 3 pieces is very hard according to the games that i played which ended almost like that.
Aug-26-08  sicilianhugefun: is there anyone who could ever dare to play like kasparov on this game?
Aug-26-08  sicilianhugefun: should we give credit to the game of chess because of kasparov? or should we salute kasparov because of chess?
Aug-26-08  sicilianhugefun: chess chess chess!!! kasparov! kasparov! kasparov!
Aug-26-08  sicilianhugefun: An illustration of PROFOUND INTUITION,coordination, brilliant calculation, tremendous energy, and NERVES OF STEEL
Oct-05-08  GMNick: 17.g6 looks better, as white attempts to open the kingside and center by following up with f4 etc.
Nov-15-08  maelith: Wow an amazing game by gazza. Kasparov has no weakness in chess, he can play all type of positions very well. What a genius!!
Nov-17-11  Nemesistic: This is Kasparov at his absolute best!!
Nov-17-11  sevenseaman: At his best Kasparov plays chess like no one else can.
Jun-21-14  paramount: GOTD!!
Jul-11-18  Kaspyjyd: Pls what is wrong with 31...Bxf4+
