  OhioChessFan: I thought Ferocious Ali should have played e4 before Kaspy could play f4.

It was as obviously analyzed by a beginner. White is dead lost. There is no way to stop the g-pawn without giving up the rook. The rest of your post is just as nonsensical.

Sep-12-20  keithbc: [Diademas] Think you have the wrong game. I am talking about Kasparov's firstrpound win (as black) where white (according to my engine) is something like +12 at the end (there is no issues with a g pawn as you state).

sorry, I was taking the game from Chessbase, where, for some reason, there is only partial moves and the ones there are not the real moves so this is why - I did see the 'proper' game later. Thanks!
