Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-05  TopaLove: 19.e5! Only kasparov can do that. I believe the greatest chess match would be Kasparov x Alekhine.
Jan-08-09  KingG: I don't know about that. Sacrificing the pawn in this way in the Benoni has been well known since at least J Penrose vs Tal, 1960.
Feb-26-12  kasparvez: After Qxe8 31. Qxe8+ Kh7 There is still a lot of play. Black shouldn't have resigned.
May-18-12  ajile: In the Modern Benoni Black waits to play ..c5 until after White has played Nf3. This then avoids the Taimanov Attack. Or basically any White line that allows him to play a quick f4.
Sep-25-16  MrJafari: What was the reason for repeat in some moves of Black?
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: geez...kasparov surgically removes black king's pawn cover.
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: 27...RxNf6? wasn't best play, but it's certainly rare to see four bishops stacked on the g-file.
Dec-13-21  Olavi: One wonders what the real score of the game is.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: why wouldn't the above moves be accurate, the correct game score?
Dec-14-21  Olavi: The manoeuvres Ra7-c7-a7 and Ne8-c7-e8 are mystifying. has 16...Qc7 and 17...Qb8.
