  Peligroso Patzer: What was the nature of the event in which this game was played? The event is designated as the Kasparov "Handicap". What does that mean?

A few years later, this same opponent was the beneficiary of one of the most astonishing blunders of Kasparov's career (20. ... Bc8?, which removed the only real defender of an important center pawn, and furthermore allowed White (Huzman) a tactic that won a second pawn whilst taking over the initiative; GK resigned on move 22): Huzman vs Kasparov, 2003

Kasparov playing the Israeli national team:

<I believe there were two days when I played the best chess in my life. I doubt people can even remember it. I personally believe the two days I played the best if you add up all the components, was against the Israeli national team in Tel Aviv in 1998.

If you look at the combined performance I don’t think anything even comes close to that. I manage to play in two matches in a row, four games by 2800 standards at the same time. The level of concentration and precision and the power of the games were outstanding. Maybe I’m wrong, but I consider this event as probably my greatest accomplishment in my professional chess career. Competitively and creatively, probably the best.>

I think he won 4-0

Jul-03-09  Knight13: <Whitehat1963: A look at Kasparov's handling of the Queen's Indian.> Except that this isn't even the normal position that results after Queen's Indian. It's way off.
