Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-04  themindset: i think that this game really shows that kasim can hold his own against kasparov - despite the eventual loss, you can see that kasparov had to fight to maintain the advantage.
Jul-13-04  shr0pshire: Circa move 40 it looks drawish to me. I think that white has a slight advantage if one at all.

I think this is a good example that Kasim will play a well fought match against Kaspy.

Jul-14-04  alexandrovm: on move 47 Kasparov breakes the barricade. Move 67 is Kasim final blunder. But that h passed pawn is too strong to do any counterplay by black here. And this game was in rapid time control. Anyway this is from 2001. Let's see what they do now. But I think Kaspy is still very strong.
Jul-15-04  acirce: When this game was played Kasim's rating was 2704 and he was the 12th highest rated in the world.
Jul-15-04  PivotalAnorak: I'm afraid Kasim doesn't stand a chance in "normal" time control conditions. Also, I wonder if Kaspy will agree to play. After all, Kasim is the winner of a very controversial FIDE championship, its legitimity is highly questionable, hence Kasim's legitimity as FIDE Champion is questionable as well...
Jul-15-04  acirce: Kasparov refusing to play Kasim would be totally opposed to the spirit of the Prague agreement of course, not that such worldly things necessarily would stop him.
Jul-29-04  alexandrovm: yes, but I think he will play. Do you know when will it be.
Jul-29-04  acirce: Nobody knows for sure, but in the words of FIDE president Ilyumzhinov after Libya WC: <First and foremost, we must get the chess world unified. We had to make some compromises all round, in the long-term interest of everyone, to get to a stage today where we will have the Kramnik-Leko match in two months and Kasparov-Kasimdzhanov a few months after. We already have some interesting proposals on the table for the latter, and also for the final match which we are planning for May 2005.>
Dec-11-04  alexandrovm: so the total score acording to this source is +4-0=0 in favor of Kasparov
Oct-07-05  Queens Gambit: All the 5 victories by Kasparov with this "FIDE champion" are beatifull, splendid games!!!
Aug-04-12  Everett: I imagine reading this thread will bring a chuckle, or maybe a shake of the head, to many readers here.
