Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-19-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Karpov wasn't satisfied with 29.Nb5, he seeked a win ... on the end he had to admit superiority against knight-wizard-in-this-game.
Jan-18-07  Udit Narayan: Just for future reference, <active> in context denotes play with the assistance of computers.
Apr-05-08  sheaf: <Udit Narayan> I think this game was played in amber 1994. This was rapid, if i am not mistaken.
Nov-22-11  voyager39: <Udit Narayan> Wonderful play assisted in year 1994 was pretty experimental isn't it?

The standard configuration being sold then was Pentium MMX 233MHz(?), 64 MB of RAM, 2 GB of Hard Disk! In fact I wanted a 128MB RAM and the vendor told me I am being dumb coz 64MB is all I will ever need!

those were the days - genius2 was good enough to beat Kasparov.

Oct-26-18  kramnov: What if 39. Nxh3 instead of Bxc7?
Oct-26-18  kramnov: No. 38. Sorry
Oct-26-18  Nerwal: <What if 39. Nxh3 instead of Bxc7?>

This is not a good move because 38... ♘xh3 doesn't create any threat while White already has a threat of his own - an immediate win with 39. ♖d8.
