<the breakthrough starting with g5 wins this game, yes?> Yes, although Black can stop the h-pawn, White can break through on the queenside too:

37...Rxd1 38. Kxd1 Kd7 39. g5 fxg5 40. fxg5 Ke8 41. gxh6 Kf8 42. b4, followed by b5, c5 etc. and Black's king is too far away to stop the new passed pawn that will result.

Nov-14-06  micartouse: I love the way this game screeches to a halt!

White's play after move 25 or so is very interesting. It looks to my amateur eyes like White is pushing too far and loosely on the wings with an open center. In reality, Kasparov has the center under firm control at all times. It's pleasing that the extended h-pawn, the most distinctive imbalance of the opening wins in the endgame.

Jan-16-07  ToTheDeath: Lovely ending. Vukic protested the young Kasparov's entry into Banja Luka 1979, so his victories over him here and in that tournament must have been extra sweet.

  Joshka: I spoke with, I believe a Ukrainian, GM in Miami at the Chess Hall of Fame in 2004, who claims he beat Garry a couple of times in this time period, late 70's.anyway he stated that he was forced out of a certain tourney and replaced by Kasparov. I believe he writes on the Silman page. Anyone know what incident I'm speaking about?

  Joshka: I'll go to the Siman page and see if he still is writing, at least I can get his name if I see it. Believe his name also starts with a K.
Jan-17-07  ToTheDeath: Looking at the losses for Kasparov in CG's database in this period it might have been Korsunsky or Kharitonov.

  Joshka: <tothedeath> It was Nikolay Andrianov. He was the Soviet Champion under 20 by having beat Garry in the previous tourney, but he was NOT allowed to attend the tourney in 1980, and Garry was allowed to play. He explained some of this to me, when we spoke......wonder if Garry ever commented on how he was able to forge ahead when Nikolay really should have been given the chance??

Presumably he congratulated the chess authorities on their correct evaluation of his and Adrianov's relative abilty.

  keypusher: Here is a link to Kasparov's complete tournament and match record. It shows that he won the Soviet junior championship in 1977, and finished second in a "world junior championship qualifier." Kasparov was 14 at the time. Is that what Adrianov is talking about? Hard to believe the Soviets didn't have any qualifier closer to 1980.

By the time the 1980 world U20 championship took place, Kasparov had won strong tournaments at Minsk and Banja Luka and finished =3/4 in a USSR championship.

  Joshka: <keypusher> Allright, Andrianov must have finsihed first in that "world championship qualifier" by beating Garry, but Garry got the spot. When I spoke with him he was quite upset by what had happened. Would be nice to know the "story" behind the story;-)

Nice explanation. Kasparov's 36 ♗c3x♘f6!! and 37 ♖e1-d1! (Karolyi) trade all the pieces off of the board, leaving White (Kasparov) with a trivial win in the pawn ending, based on creating two distant passed pawns.

Nov-03-07  Wolfgang01: Yep, Joshka! We all „know“ Kasparov, but who is Andrianov??

Ok, I don't know neither Kasparov nor Andrianov. Ok, I was kiddin'.

If Andrianov would have been the „better“ player, he would have been preferred to Kasparov. One win against an becoming world-champion by random is not enough. If I compare successes and opponents between Kasparov and Andrianov there is at first the difference, this database contains just 64 games of Andrianov over these long years. Kasparov was in his first years becoming succesful against the soviet-elite-gms and grew up to ELO over 2800. Andrianov got at the most ELO 2450. I think the youth-trainers in USSR knew Kasparov and Andrianov. Therefore the sent Kasparov.

  perfidious: The Soviet chess authorities had decided that Kasparov was a better hope for the world title than Andrianov-in the same fashion that they put all their resources behind Karpov, instead of Korchnoi, a few years before-so Kasparov it was. Period. End of story.
Aug-27-11  K9Empress: Interesting this story about Kasparov and Andrianov. I once saw K's story in a DVD devoted to his career but this story wasn't in it.

<perfidious> The soviets had already found their "man in a million", Karpov, who was under soviet control. so when Kasparov entered the scene, many were unhappy. Kasparov was not a man to be controlled, and he was half armenian.
