Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-18-05  OneArmedScissor: How does Kasparov win?
Jul-30-05  mack: Not sure but Bf3 followed by Qd1 looks winning.
Jul-30-05  Anastasia: Actually, it would have to be a3 then Qd3 wouldn't it? 28.Bf3 g4.
Jul-30-05  mack: Well stone me. Bf3 is a great way to hang two bishops though.
Jul-30-05  themindset: yeah, ...g4 would get a bishop, wouldn't it?
Aug-05-07  newton296: the win looks pretty straight forward after a3 then Qd3! and what now for black ? ... Be8!? to try and save the bishop looks best but then white has Rxe6! and if ...Re8!? forced to save the B white lands bd5! ( threatnening a discoverd check) and entangling black in a mating net.
Aug-05-07  newton296: the problen is blacks knight has no good moves after a3 . Nc2? Nd3?? loses a piece to Qd3! so Na6 or Na2 and white just procceeds without any danger to his king with the Q d3 line above. there is no good moves to counter attack with so black just gives here. thats my 2 cents anyway.
Aug-05-07  newton296: note , the "mating net" being if black responds ...Kh8?? to avoid the discovered check, he just gets nailed worse with another discovered check and mate !! after f7!! this game is a reminder of why gazza'a is considered the greatest attacker of all time. a beutifull king hunt! In my humble opinion.
