Sep-22-04  TheParadigm: Excellent game by Kasparov, as always. Why did Polgar play 29. f4, freeing his bishop and aiming another piece at the queenside?
Jun-09-06  spirit: nice game by GAZZA
Jul-15-06  MagnaPsygnosis: Kasparov loves the Scheveningen Variation of the Sicilian... and he knows what he he is doing in this opening.

  Penguincw: Great game. I only got 65 in the Guess-the Move Game.
Jul-06-14  Chris321: This is a Najdorf not a Scheveningen!
Jul-06-14  Everett: Typical transposition, with the pawn's on d6-e6.
May-27-15  ToTheDeath: Great play, especially for rapid. Kasparov shows his usual deep understanding of the Black side of the Najdorf here.
