  sergeidave: Didn't Kasparov missed checkmate on 26. Nc6#? That was mate wasn't it? Was it that he didn't want to be so cruel? lol...
Oct-10-04  n30: yep, he did. I don't think you can play chess and not be cruel though ;o)~
Oct-11-04  Hidden Skillz: except when it comes to girls..anand offered draw to carmen kass..<Carmen Kass in full concentration mode in her game against Anand, who, we are told, was so confused by his spectacular opponent that he offered her a draw instead of delivering a forced mate.>
Jan-28-05  mahmoudkubba: may be the conditions of this game forced Kasparov not to play the move suggested in No. 26 by the night. any how it seems it is a nice sanction like the one which was on Iraq since 1990 till 2003??!
Jan-28-05  mahmoudkubba: <from move 19 till move 29>
Jan-28-05  mahmoudkubba: yet I am amazed that due to my knowledge to <Kasparov> yet he was the player of white for this game
Dec-15-05  Kottabos: I enjoy replaying those Kasparov simul games. The way he plays the openings, in avoiding the complications he seeks in classical chess, makes the difference in strength all the more clear. What do the simul games of "normal" grandmasters look like? They are not included in the Chessgames database, as far as I can see, and that makes me wonder whether Kasparov's simul games are included in Chessgame's winning percentages. If they are, there is something wrong: who else plays tournaments of +25-0? What tournament ELO scores would that give: 4000? 5000? 6000?
Dec-15-05  hayton3: This was a 'hot' encouter for Garry.
Dec-15-05  hayton3: But it was Claudia who ended up in the 'pickle'.
Dec-15-05  hayton3: Garry spiced things up by peppering the kingside with his pieces.
Dec-15-05  hayton3: Claudia must have been on the 'sauce' the night before.
Dec-15-05  mr. nice guy: You sure are a "hot tamale" with those puns.
Jan-15-09  WhiteRook48: Kasparov ate the tabasco.
