  PawnSac: Wow. The US Champion, who swept the 2014 Sinquefield cup 8.5/10 beating Magnus by 3 points gets schooled by Garry, who makes it look easy!

  catlover: He may be a bit out of practice, but you can tell that when it comes to attacks, Kasparov has done this sort of thing before.

  guenther42: Playing against supercomputers for a half-generation could not prepare present-day world #2 Caruana against Kasparov, who detonates a rapid avalanche of creative combinations. What a joy to behold!
Apr-30-16  RookFile: White had chances to play the rather odd move Nxa7. For example maybe you play 26. Nxa7, or bxc5 first and then Nxa7. The idea is to get the knight back in the game with Nc6. Not the sort of move you think about when Kasparov is attacking your kingside, but it might have helped.

And therefore, by the transitive property applied to disjointed facts pieced together ass-backwards, we can reasonably conclude that Kasparov is in fact the legitimate holder of the title of Miss Universe.

Reminds me of this:

May-30-16  Albanius: I once had the kind of position against my brother that Gazza had around move 31: all the heavy pieces plus some minor pieces aimed at his King, and came up with my all-time favorite trash talk line, quoting a good ole boy southern cop to an unfortunate motorist in an old TV commercial:


Oct-07-16  John Abraham: incredible
Dec-19-16  cyborg077: Taking Nxa7 and coming Nc6 to attack rook is simply waste of tempi, because Black is happy to move rook on h8 with or without Nc6
Apr-26-18  Albanius: Looking again after 32 Nxd6, Nf3! threatening mate with the queen as well as both rooks is immediately decisive.
