Feb-08-05  yunis: why not gxh5 on move 21?i cant find the next moves of black!!
Feb-08-05  Granite: Well for one, it complicates the game, and when you've got an advantage you don't have to make things needlessly crazy. Black might muster a perpetual if you look at say, 21. gxh5 Rxh5 on move 22 black can look at rook sacs to get a perpetual, unclear.

Compare that to the final position here, where white is up the exchange and has all kinds of play. If it was white's move Re5 threatens to win a bishop, white has a knight check, and if the rooks get to the back rank it pins the bishop - this game is clearly winning for white without the complications.

Mar-10-06  alexandrovm: another Spanish opening with Kasparov in comand of the white pieces, this time black goes down very fast due to a blunder...somewhere, and of course, great technique by Kasparov.

An amazing game by Kasparov: here he wins a miniature in an opening (Open Spanish) that his strong opponent (Krasenkow) specializes(!) in.

May-07-08  diabloprancer: <yunis> according to Chesslife march 2003, white's king is too exposed after 21. gxh5 Rg5+ (or 21. ...Rxh5 22. Bxe4 dxe4 23. Rxe4 Rxh3) 22. Kf1 (22. Nxg5 Qxf2+ 23. Kh1 Ng3 mate) 22. ...Rxh5 23. Bxe4 dxe4 24. Rxe4 Rxh3.

It would be very un-Kasparov-like to be up material but in a dangerous position.
