Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-02-06  Bobak Zahmat: After set up a great King side attack Kasparov demolishes Anand's defensive sources. An amazing game which reflects Kasparov's attacking potential.
Dec-08-06  ToTheDeath: Great methodical attack by Kasparov. 11... Nc4 and 17... Nc5 look like improvements. White's initiative is simply too powerful after 22. Bf3.
Jan-14-08  grasser: What is Kasparov inviting with
2.Nc3 and 3.Nge2?
Jan-15-08  MUG: 'Threatening' to play the Closed Sicilian? ... Although he never actually has according to the database!
Jan-09-09  KingG: This game is just brutal. It's amazing how precisely Kasparov plays throughout all the complication. It's difficult to find a single mistake, or even an inaccuracy.
Jan-22-10  CruyffTurn: <grasser: What is Kasparov inviting with 2.Nc3 and 3.Nge2?> He's not <inviting> anything, he's trying to limit Black's options - which Anand ignores - and just transposes to a normal Open Sicilian. He's trying to kid Anand, just mess with him a little, as after 2.Nc3 d6 he has the option of playing 3.f4 for example.
May-23-12  WiseWizard: I was looking for games where the winner creates strong threats on every turn, I knew Kasparov would deliver.
Jun-30-14  MarkFinan: There's not much kibitzing considering this is an attacking game between two of the all time modern greats. A lot of piece shuffling and water treading going on until Gazza goes for it with g4 and g5.

Note to self : Check through with baby Stockfish when I have time ʕ•ﻌ•ʔ

Jul-01-19  Alibaba2007: Kd7 36. Nf3 Nc6 37. Qd5 wins.
