Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-02  Chess Champ: That's all fine, but... all these players and masters and patzers train the opening moves and i say they do it, we must do it, but did you notice no matter how much you train every single game is so different even in the simplest and most known openings...?

Anyway, I want to comment about Kramnik. Few months ago a young boy drew one game with the champ. Why ? Because Kramnik let him draw it, check out the game... He made that kid happy. No serious complications... By drawing, it made that boy the first one in history for such a young age. Now... Kasparov played 6 games against this girl and did not let her draw none, ok, that's fine, I'd have done it myself. But what makes me a little bit upset is that when Kasparov played few months ago for cancer traetment charity he played against kids who had some form of cancer. ( most of them had not hair ) And he played with white... GUESS WHAT, HE CRUSHED THEM ALL AND WITHOUT MERCY, no draw to anybody, nobody got a smile. Sure it was great playing him but... The other thing I want to bring is that those simuls are not being played right. SIMULS MUST BE 50% 50% BLACK AND WHITE PIECES, especially against lower competition and that is also better for the master who is playing them. Do know it's better and more interesting. I know lots of chess stories, facts and trivia.

Nov-30-02  pawntificator: Well keep them coming Champ! I read Karpov on Karpov, and he didn't paint Kasparov as a very nice guy either.

I would not expect either to paint a very nice picture of the other given the history of their relations.

Nov-30-02  pawntificator: I guess we could call this girl a Paehtzer, although I'm sure she could take me out.
Nov-30-02  pawntificator: Wow! I just saw her picture and I think I'm in love!
Nov-30-02  PVS: It appears Kasparov was immune to her charm.
Nov-30-02  Chess Champ: Guys, she can beat you up real bad, she is well over 2300 and that is nothing to joke about, that's 2400+ uscf rating. It's a shame all these champs are not like morphy, euwe, they had more respect for the game, not really money or other crap that goes around the game.
Nov-30-02  drukenknight: Be sure to wear a cup if you encounter her.
Dec-04-02  ongyj: Hey is there some sort of anti-kasparov campaign here? I mean, I feel that these professionals should be given due respect, and the part about Kasparov crushing weak opponents despite being 'cruel', also demonstrates his seriousness, devotion and professionalism in his lifetime career, chess. And I personally do not like to play with someone better who deliberately did not play to his best just to make me 'happy'.
Aug-06-05  get Reti: Why not 11...♗xh2? If 12.g3, then ♗xg3 13. fxg3 ♕xg3- A bishop for three pawns and blacks defense is broken up. If 14.♖g1, then ♕e5. I think its a little late at move 16, it wastes a few moves backing up the bishop and it loses it anyway.

  tpstar: <get Reti> After 11 ... Bxh2!? look at 12. f4 = 12 ... Bg3 13. e5 Nd5 14. Qg4, or 12 ... e5!? 13. Nf5 intending 14. Nxg7+ and both times the open lines benefit White.

Great game for blitz. I agree that it must be 43 ... Rh5+ winning instead of 43 ... Rh4+?? losing.
