Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-05-11  estrick: Nice bishop and pawn ending. Very instructive technique by Kasparov: -induce all of Black's pawns to go to dark squares while getting nearly all of his on White squares.

Black appears to be in zugswang after 45. Bh8.

Jul-13-11  ToTheDeath: Agreed, very nice ending.

51.g5!

May-24-13  Balmo: Beautiful positional game a la Karpov. Kasparov is best known as an attacking genius, but here he demonstrates his mastery of all phases of the game with a beautiful maneuvering game against De Firmian. The finale with 51. g5! is elegant.
