Sep-25-09  pawn to QB4: This couldn't be one of those TNs Kasparov still had on the secret laptop when he retired, could it? Only game in the database with 8.Qxb7 seems to be this: Seirawan vs Xu Jun, 2002, the whole line from 6...Bxf5 had been doing nothing until this game, and suddenly 10...Rb6! improving on Xu Jun, and Karpov was very much on the receiving end of what followed.

  ajk68: After move 21...dxc4, I think white has no good moves. There are tactical possibilities everywhere. It would be interested to see the computer evaluation.
Sep-26-09  notyetagm: What an ass beating by Kasparov!
Sep-27-09  Ulhumbrus: 12..Bb4! threatens to deprive White's King of the right to castle by ...Bxc3 and ..Rb1+
Oct-14-09  WhenHarryMetSally: How about for 17....QB6 instead
Dec-04-13  peltonen: This game looks strange to me, full of underestimations, though I understand that it was a blitz match.

At first, White underestimated Black's Queen-side attack by playing 14. a3 instead of 14. Qb3 Ba5 15. Qa3 and not allowing this attack to happen.

Then 17. Bg2 was bad and just a quick glance should have made the Black to realize that b8 is an excellent point for their Queen to perform an attack and they should have left their knight on d7. Same goes to the White, why didn't they play Qxa7? After that White was doomed.

<How about for 17....QB6 instead> That would be a blunder.

Dec-04-13  RookFile: Is it a good idea to develop your king to f3 in the middle game against Kasparov?
