Jul-13-04  themindset: another kasparov krush of kasim, interesting that he avoided the mainline of the grunfeld to play what is generally a more tame approach with white (notice how white cedes the center rather than grabbing it).

Jul-14-04  alexandrovm: No matter what Kasim does, he loses his rook! lol
Sep-14-04  Giancarlo: <another kasparov krush of kasim> Kasim plays Kasparov 3 times, of which 2 are blitz. This being the only "real" match. Seems to me Kasim not in his prime yet, and Kasparov is in this match. I do think when they play, Kasim will put up a better fight.
Sep-14-04  IT4LICO: I really like grunfeld variant in which white sacrifices his QR for the a1-h8 diagonals, it would be interesting to have a collection of this kind of game, anyone got it?...
Feb-24-05  Bobsterman3000: ouch. The white bishop pair slices up the board like a pair of razors.
Oct-07-05  Queens Gambit: Wonderfull game!!

Kazim could not play against him, be it rapid or normal time control...
Apr-17-06  SJP: Kasimdzhanov. What a rhythmic name!
Ka-ZIM-za-nov! Ka-ZIM-za-nov!

Jul-26-08  aazqua: Kasparov is just incredible.
May-13-11  Al25: Amaizing use of bishops by kasparov. Kasim's knights where completely dominated.

  plang: Played in round 8; the seventh and last of Kasparov's 7 consecutive wins in rounds 2-8. 13 Bb2?..Nbc4 doesn't work for White. Kasparov felt that 14..Nc6 would have been a better move than Kasmdzhanov's 14..Bxe6?!. 15 Ne4 was new; 15 Nf4 had been played in Mozny-Kalod Czech Republic 1997. After the game Kasparov and Kasimdzhanov agreed that the active 19..Nb4 would have been Black's best defense. The attack that Kasparov initiated with reduced forces was quite impressive. After 32 f5! his pieces dominated the board. One nice variation was 32..g5 33 Rc1!..Nf6 34 Rc8..Nxd5 35 Rxd8+..Kh7 36 Bd4..Rb1+ 37 kf2 and wins. Another was 33..Ne5 34 Bd4..Nd3 35 Nxh6+..Kf8 36 Bxb2..Nxe1 37 Bf6! and wins.
