  cu8sfan: <TIMER> Where did you get these? Were you there? Are the games somewhere on a webpage? I think there was a problem with the transmission and the moves were lost.
Aug-22-06  TIMER: <cu8sfan> Mig said that Kasparov relayed the whole game to him over the phone !

  cu8sfan: Thanks. Marc Crowther of TWIC wrote that Mig was talking to Gary so I think we can be confident that it's right.
Aug-23-06  Chess Lou Zer: Good puzzle after 43...Kh8.
Aug-29-06  Tenderfoot: Why not 43...Rxh7? Obviously I haven't found something that Judit Polgar overlooked, but still, I am having trouble seeing where that line goes wrong.

  Albertan: Tenderfoot if Polgar had played 43...Rxh7?? the game would end after 44.Rxf8 checkmate.

Sep-01-06  Tenderfoot: haha, Oh. Yeah, I see it now.
Oct-06-06  cotdt: i can't beleive kasparov is still so good at chess, given how old he is.
Oct-07-06  MrMelad: <cotdt> lol :)
Oct-12-06  notyetagm: Wow, Kasparov is so freaking strong.

What an incredible transformation Kasparov brings about.

Oct-12-06  notyetagm: This game is a beautiful combination of strategy (central expansion) and tactics (24 ♘f5!, 41 ♗h7+!).

Simply beautiful.

Nov-15-06  GrandPatzerSCL: What.. a 5 min game?? These people can come up with this stuff in a Blitz game???
Nov-15-06  Willtord: 36. Ce4+ and White wins.
Nov-15-06  AliMatok: kasparov the best chess player of all time. better than kramnik for sure. bet???
Nov-15-06  MrPatzer: <Willtord: 36. Ce4+ and White wins.> 36. Be4+ does indeed win faster, but give him a break--it WAS blitz.
Dec-10-06  Ch3ckmate: is a blitz game always 5 mins? can it be shorter or longer time?
Dec-10-06  Karpova: can be shorter. On uscl it ranges from 2 min 1 sec to 10 min, i think. but 5 min without increment is quite common.
Feb-09-07  fblin: Kasparov missed a checkmate in 5 !!!
36.Be4+ NxB
37.QxB+ Rf5
Feb-28-07  TheHurricane3: This is the most beautiful game I've ever seen!
Mar-18-07  Vash854: Kasparov is only 44, you can't really say he is old.
Mar-20-07  alexandrovm: well, the guy is just a genious, read my link on Kasparov's page. His IQ is 190!
Apr-01-07  BadTemper: What's wrong with 26..Nc7 ?
