Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-03-02  bishop: Kasparov's king's knight goes on a journey to a4 and then takes the enemy b-pawn, it cannot be captured because of mate in 2. Black's 20th move puts a stop to White's counterplay.
Feb-16-04  zorro: 20...f5 is double exclam!!
Feb-17-04  drukenknight: why isnt 18 Bf4?

  Honza Cervenka: <DK> Good question. It can force an immediate draw: 18.Bf4 Qf6 19.Bg5 Nxd3 20.cxd3 Qe5 (20...Qg6? 21.Nf4 ) 21.Bf4 etc. or white can try also anything else.
Feb-17-04  Benjamin Lau: It was a rapid game.
Feb-17-04  drukenknight: well I did see it rapidly. I wonder if they could have found all those moves in a short time?

  Honza Cervenka: Maybe white believed that he can gain more playing 18.f4 but 18.Bf4 is certainly a better move.
May-30-05  ThomYorke: Impressive game, Kasparov had many possibilities to checkmate. Nothing could stop him...what should we expect from a 2850 rated?
Jun-09-06  spirit: is 39.Bd4+ blunder or frustration?
Jun-09-06  aw1988: Probably frustration, but in any case Grischuk is getting mated.
Jul-03-06  spirit: then he should have resigned!
Oct-28-06  Sacred Knight: Grischuk is another great player that has a really bad score against Kasparov. Even after several games, Kasparov is undefeated against him, he won six games and five ended in draw.
Oct-28-06  setebos: Grischuk should have beaten Kasparov at least once. I believe he is at least as talented as Radjavob.
Apr-16-12  screwdriver: Another victim to Kasparov's Najdorf.
