Aug-15-17  chesssalamander: Is this the very first--and so far only--time Levon and Gazza have played against each other?
Aug-15-17  sanju1996d: no!during the opening interview, aronian mentioned that he did play Kasparov in 2003. it was a blitz game which aronian won.
Aug-15-17  chesssalamander: Is that 2003 game in the database here?
Aug-16-17  Xeroxx: <no!during the opening interview, aronian mentioned that he did play Kasparov in 2003. it was a blitz game which aronian won.>

So Kasparov is better now than he was in 2003.

Aug-16-17  acirce: He must have meant 2004, in Reykjavik. Only some of those games were recorded. Sadly not that one as it seems.
Aug-16-17  Chuckles: There is an interesting possibility if Garry plays 42...Kg4 at the end. White has to take the pawn, but then the knight is trapped on h7. It seems that the best play then is:

43. Nxh7 b5
44. Kd5 a5
45. Kd6 b4
46. axb4 a4! (if axb4, white can take the knight and get back to stop the b-pawn)

47. b5 a3
48. Nf6+! Nxf6
49. b6 a2
50. b7 a1Q
51. b8Q

This is a tablebase draw. But pretty hard to see everything with no time left!
