  sfm: <ConLaMismaMano: Why did Kasparov resign here? > Good question, it is very early. Having a lost position is totally insufficient reason. Maybe he'd rather concentrate on the other games.
Thanks for waiting 10 years for this comment! :-)

  Sally Simpson: Hi Esauwept,

The answer is in the thread.

There is no clear cut win just an awful position for Black. The White win was inevitable.

Kasparov was playing a clock simultaneous display against 6 Argentinian Grandmasters.

It does appear he quit this game to concentrate on the others. It looks like worked.

He won 3 games, drew two and lost this one.

The day before he played the same six players winning three and drawing three.

Oct-04-15  Esauwept: Thanks as ever.
