Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-08  Underworld: This is a very nice game by Kasparov along with his comments helps to see what he was looking for and that he has a deep meaning in the moves he makes. I also like how he admits his mistakes right out. A man like that is someone you can trust and is a very hard man to beat.
Sep-17-08  The Chess Express: I too have enjoyed playing over this game.
Sep-18-08  clocked: It looks like the suggested 29.Nf4 can be adequately answered by Rc3
Sep-13-09  kdogphs: I watched Mr. Ivanov play at the 69th New England Open and it was very cool to see a Grandmaster play, even cooler to see him draw Kasparov in this game!
Feb-07-10  remolino: Two characteristics of Kasparov's play are evident in this game:

1. How sober and accurate he is in evaluating positions, willing to admit whether he has an advantage or not, whether he has committed mistakes or not. Very objective.

2. Out-of-this-world calculation skills. The variations in this game are not too complex, it seems, but in reality they are. He has an amazing ability to understand how all parts of the board interact with eachother

Dec-10-18  MrJafari: An interesting game especially along with Kasparov's annotation...
