  WannaBe: <Costin> You need to have java support (JRE) and use the arrows on the right side of the board.

Or you can click on a move, to start at that specific location, for example, if you click on 27. Rd3, it will jump to that stage of the chess game.

Nov-03-08  Hot Logic: When I look at Kasparov's games I often get the feeling he is playing chess at a higher level than everyone else, he seems to have this amazing heightened sense of tactical awareness that lets him squeeze every ounce of advantage out of a position.

I agree, but also i think he has prepared many of these explosive early middlegame positions at home. he may have been the best 'home planner' of all players.

  HeMateMe: The first game between the wily veteran and the young turk. The strange interplay in the center reminds me a bit of the game 6 that Kasparov lost to Deep Blue II.

  plang: Played at Linares 2001 which was a 6 player double round robin that Kasparov won with +5 a full 3 points ahead of the other 5 players who tied for 2nd-6th. The original game of this line (Taimanov with ..Qc7 delayed and ..a6 omitted) was the draw Kasparov-Leko Linares 1999 where Black played 15..Qxd6; 15..Rfc8 was new. 16..Qxd6? 17 Bh6!..gxh 18 Qg4+..Kh8 19 Bxb7..Qb6+ 20 Rf2..Qxb7 21 c3 would have been goof for White. Grischuk erred with 27..Rb7?; better was 27..Bf5 28 Rc3..Rxd6 29 Bxa7..Rb7 30 Bc5..Rd3 31 Rxd3..Bxd3 32 b4..Bxc4 33 a4..d5 34 b5..Kf7 with an unclear endgame. After a second error 30..f5? Black was close to losing; 30..Bf7 and 30..Rc6 were alternatives. Black resigned due to 45 ..Rb3 46 Rxg7+..Ke6 47 Rg6+..Kf7 48 Rf6+..Kg7 49 Rg5+..Kh7 50 Rf7+..Kh6 51 Rh5+..Kg6 52 Rg7#.
