  samvega: 19.Bxc4!, setting up the queen trapping Qb4. This must rate among Kasparov's best.
Jul-24-05  mynameisrandy: What the heck handicap was in place here? Kasparov have his shoelaces tied together or something?
Jul-25-05  shortsight: Handicap in the sense that Kasparov faced the whole Isreal team at the same time. It's a simul against a bunch of top GMs. He did that against Germany and Czech as well.

  samvega: Not completely sure I understand 23..Rxc6 vs. 23..Rh8. Anybody?
Aug-07-05  shortsight: < samvega: ... 23..Rxc6 vs. 23..Rh8 ... > or do you mean 23..Ra8 instead? I'm not quite sure too. About 23..Rxc6, seems like e7 is going to be bombarded soon, with g5, f4 and also posting a rook on e1 by White? And with the knight at c6, Black could not castle or simply drop the Bishop at e7. About 23.. Ra8, not sure if a Queen and a Rook is able to cause any problem to White. Maybe a better player could give more insight into the moves, I believe I could have shortsighted a few things.

  samvega: <shortsight> sorry, I missed your reply. I think what I had in mind was 23..Ra8 24.Qb3 Bf6 (in order to castle), and missed that white just plays 25.g5. So I think I was underestimating how big a thorn the knight at c6 is. (23..Ra8 is only useful if black can manage to castle).
Aug-14-05  shortsight: <samvega> I believe you have cool yourself down in response to this game: Kramnik vs Gheorghiu, 1989 Now, this looks a more mature and polite. This is what I call a real man!

  samvega: My remarks on the page you refer to had to do with what was going on on that day on the recent kibitzing page, and not just kibitzes to that specific game.
Aug-16-05  alexandrovm: nice gain, in the sicilian Kasparov knows well as black. Alexander, years later, would just anoy Kasparov with a win.
May-27-06  spirit: 28.Rfh1!... nice finish by GAZZA
Jun-18-06  spirit: 28.Rfh1!...very aggressive
Aug-10-07  BlackNightmare: the most amazing thing is that this was only 1 game out of 4 played simultaneously against 4 israel grandmasters ....the result 4-0 for kasparov NO COMMENT!
Aug-11-07  Karpova: <shortsight: Handicap in the sense that Kasparov faced the whole Isreal team at the same time. It's a simul against a bunch of top GMs. He did that against Germany and Czech as well.> Are you sure? I only know about Kasparov playing the national temas of Israel and the Czech Republic while Kramnik played the national team of Germany. When did the Kasparov-Germany match take place?
Aug-11-07  Karpova: You are correct. Kasparov - Germany 1992 (he won with +2 =2 -0)

  offramp: Kasparov has many huge chess achievements to his name, but beating the Israeli National team in a simultaneous display was by far the most ostentatious.

As the French say: clame!
