Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-08  kitaro33: Hi, I was part of the team formed by Luis Muñoz (Chile) to face Kasparov in this simul, and it is open for your comments. thanks
Apr-15-08  FICSwoodpusher: It looks like 26. ... Nxa8 is forced. Thereafter 27. Nxb5 threatens both 28. Nxb6 and 28. Ra7 .

So if it goes 26. ... Nxa7 27. Nxb5 Qb8 28. Rxa8 Qxa8 29. Nc7 Qa4 30. Nxe8 Qxe8 Well that doesn't look so good for white.

Maybe I am missing something instead of 28. Rxa8. Just what I see at a glance.

Apr-16-08  devioustalfan: Kasparov seems behind a tempo until he plays his 9th move. after 9...Re8 i would play 10.Be3 c5 11. d5 b6 12. Ng5! some of Black's moves might not have been played by a GM but, hey if it confuses them all the better. if black plays say 10...d5 then 11. cxd5 cxd5 12. dxe5 and Black is looking bad in my eyes.
Apr-16-08  devioustalfan: Further Analysis: if black plays: 12... Nxe5 then 13. Nxe5 Ng4 14.Nxg4 Bxg4 15.Qxg4 Bxc3 16. Rc1! and Black is lost. Good play by Kasparov real or anylitical though.

sorry about the error on 16. it should read Racl!

Apr-16-08  kitaro33: <devioustalfan: Further Analysis: if black plays: 12... Nxe5 then 13. Nxe5 Ng4> I´d rather play 13 ... Rxe5, so I would not lose a piece. but I agree it is still good for white.
Apr-16-08  kitaro33: Why did kasparov played 23.Rc1 instead of 23.Rfa1?.
May-19-08  devioustalfan: <kitaro33> good point. although the removal of white's knight on g5 and Qd2 aim mercilessly at the fianchetto. with a bit of luck from

ither white or black could win, but it looks drawish to me. P.S. I filled in some moves not mentioned if there's and error let me know.

May-19-08  newton296: <FICSwoodpusher: It looks like 26. ... Nxa8 is forced. Thereafter 27. Nxb5 threatens both 28. Nxb6 and 28. Ra7 .>

so what ? if thats the best line it still looks like draw to me with best play .

why did luis just resign here with draw still likely? looks like a case of a small fry just giving in because of who he is playing .

May-27-08  kitaro33: Luis Muñoz Didnt resign, the game was played throught internet and the only valid clock was the one used by kasparov beside the board, at that time internet connections were unstable and Luis Muñoz couldnt send his move. I agree it looks drawish.
Jul-25-08  percyblakeney: Looking at the final position with engines, white's best continuation after <26. ... Nxa8> seems to be <27. Qxb5>. A queen exchange would lose the pawn on d6 for black (after 27. ... Qxb5 28. Nxb5) so the only move seems to be <27. ... Nc7>. After <28. Qc6> queen exchange will be forced sooner or later, giving white a strong passed pawn on c6, for example <28. ... Rd8 29. Rb1> and black must take on c6 <29. ... Qxc6 30. dxc6>.

The position now looks like this and could maybe still be held by black, but Nd5 is coming up and it will be uncomfortable.

Aug-02-08  kitaro33: yeah percyblakeney , that line seem very interesting for white.

  Domdaniel: This was apparently a clock simul, unlike most simul games. Perhaps that should be included in the header.
