Oct-21-05  Queens Gambit: What happened here, somebody knows????
May-22-06  spirit: blac chickened out!!!
May-22-06  notsodeepthought: Ay Charambalos!
Mar-15-07  AAAAron: Kasparov formed what is known as the Stonehenge formation, there's just no beating that!
Jun-29-07  argishti: the hell?
Jun-29-07  johnwgoes: It would have been insulting to Kasparov to play on as black here.
Aug-16-07  miensteen: maybe this is a blitz game and his opponent is out of time..

  technical draw: Kasparov ganĂ³ por carambolas.
Aug-27-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: i'll have to run this thru shredder...i'm just as curious about why black resigned as everyone else is
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <PAWNTOEFOUR> Shredder isn't going to tell you anything. probably just an incomplete game score. Or the guy had an appointment. Or...who knows? Without more information, it's a waste of time trying to figure out what happened.
Aug-27-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: <keypusher>......i know that....i was just curious as to how the position might evolve.....but that's a good idea......a shredder that can talk.....i'll have to work on that
Aug-27-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: after 63:07 and 1,077,977,271 nodes,shredder comes up with this......9.e5 10.d5 Nd4 11.0-0 Nxc2 12.Qxc2 Bd7 13. Be3 and evaluates it @+0.16...looks pretty even to me,i could be wrong........i usually am
Aug-27-07  nimzo knight: Is 4. Bd3 the best continuation here. People often put the trap of 4. Be2 Nxe4 5. Qa4+.
Aug-28-07  savagerules: Obviously Gary was aware of Charambalos reputation with the Dragon Sicilian and so he played the anti-patzer Sicilian with White and Black got offended and left in a huff.
Aug-28-07  pacelli: Actually black suffered a mild heart attack and the game stopped - it was widely reported in the Spanish dailies back then, I remember.
Aug-29-07  Jack Kerouac: Heart attack! Couldn't Kaspy at least give him a pass? Although Reshevsky would take the win....
Feb-13-08  medo78: I think black just wanna get in history by shortest game against kasparov ,,,, thats why we cee his game here !!!
Jun-25-08  zoat22: Did Kasparov actually play the KOPEC System?!?!?!?!?!
Aug-12-08  dumbgai: 9. Nc3!! A brilliant winning move that only a genius like Kasparov could find! Actually I hate to say it but I had this exact position as white in a blitz game today and I lost horribly.
Apr-09-09  WhiteRook48: what kind of resignation is this??
Oct-31-09  WhiteRook48: this game actually continued 9...Qb6 10 d5! Ne5 11 Bf4!!
Oct-31-09  WhiteRook48: btw 4 Bd3 seems to be completely against Kasparov's principles. (and no the game did not continue)
Mar-11-10  hedgeh0g: My guess is that Kasparov was masquerading as someone else and when he revealed his true identity, Charambalos decided to do the logical thing.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: 9.Nc3 is a good move, but it doesn't warrant a heart attack by Black.
Oct-13-16  Al2009: He suddenly remembered he left his car without parking disk!
