Jul-24-17  bla bla: why not 35.kg1?
Jul-24-17  Howard: In response to that inquiry...take a look at White's queen, on d3 !

  thegoodanarchist: I would love to see the time on the players' clocks after moves 16 and 17.
Aug-27-17  Olavi: According to Kasparov, they had analyzed it up to 21...g5. Badly, of course, for they missed 12.Be3. Or is it still playable??!

  keypusher: Olavi -- Stockfish doesn't seem to think it's so bad for Black after Be3. Doesn't seem appetizing for Black though.
Oct-19-17  Damenlaeuferbauer: In my opinion the best game of the decade 1980 - 1989 and Kasparov's real "supreme creative achievement" (despite Kasparov - Topalov, Wijk aan Zee 1999 and others)!
Nov-17-17  amateur05: There is a very nice draft version of this: Karpov vs Ulf Andersson, 1975

Oct-11-18  piroflip: A brilliant game by the second best player ever.

  Everybodychessnow: On move 28 after black has retreated his bishop to g6 white should've played bishop h3 to pin the knight to the rook then Kd3 to e5 29. Bxd7... kxd7 30. Qb2 is best continuation

  beatgiant: Does this mean we have to redo the whole city nickname joke? Why not the Nha Trang Knight Hop?
Dec-13-20  fisayo123: This is one of the most humiliating defeats in World Championship match history. Karpov was a top 3 player of all time still relatively in his prime at the time this was played.

He gets tied and bound down not by just by positional domination but by tactical domination as well. He continues to make natural moves but by move 16 he is completely immobilized.

Such a thing has never been seen before or since in World Championship match history.

Dec-13-20  fisayo123: Kasparov holds 2 of the top 10 greatest chessgames ever played.

Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999

Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985

  Plaskett: Kasparov pointed out to me that the notorious 12 Be3! refutation Karpov sprang on van der Wiel (a game in which John actually later had some winning chances!) could be countered by12...Bxe3 13 Qa4+ Bd7!? 14 Qxb4 Qb6 after which he is not convinced black is lost.
