  Shams: <Jim Bartle> relates the following story about this game, which he was fortunate enough to see in person, on another page. (Kasparov vs Oral, 2001)

<[Kasparov] made a spectacular sacrifice on move 18 or so against Carlomagno Oblitas, then left Oblitas to look at his horrible position without moving for more than an hour.>

He surely means 22.Nab5!

Brutal attack.

Correct. And as I said, Kasparov played on the other five boards for most of an hour before returning to finish off this game.
