Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-23-09  aazqua: Hmm. Maybe opening up the board and playing for sharp tactical variations wasn't the right strategy against Kasparov?
Jun-23-09  WhiteRook48: 5...b5?
Jun-23-09  panzerkampf: does kasparov play games ever since 2005??
Aug-22-09  Bobsterman3000: He was doing OK until 26...e4 ??

Maybe at that point black should have endeavored to rehabilitate the his light-squared bishop to a better square, or shift the queen back to the kingside. The black queen was stuck offside during the final attack and could not provide any help.

Aug-02-16  j4jishnu: After winning the prestigious Linares tournament for the ninth time, Kasparov announced on 10 March 2005 that he would retire from serious competitive chess. He cited as the reason a lack of personal goals in the chess world (he commented when winning the Russian championship in 2004 that it had been the last major title he had never won outright) and expressed frustration at the failure to reunify the world championship. Kasparov said he may play in some rapid chess events for fun, but intends to spend more time on his books, including both the My Great Predecessors series and a work on the links between decision-making in chess and in other areas of life, and will continue to involve himself in Russian politics, which he views as "headed down the wrong path". On 22 August 2006, in his first public chess games since his retirement, Kasparov played in the Lichthof Chess Champions Tournament, a blitz event played at the time control of 5 minutes per side and 3 second increments per move. Kasparov tied for first with Anatoly Karpov, scoring 4/6.

And this game is definitely the best place for him to announce that.
