May-09-03  gilk: Great end position!
May-09-03  stef21: there is missing 31. Qxf6 Rxf6 then 32. Nxh5
Jul-28-04  chess4games: This game looks like draw more than 1-0 to me.

  Zenchess: chess4games: Black resigned because he is a piece down. When you see a position like this, I suggest you set up the final position and work out the game. Usually, you'll find out for yourself why Black resigned. Normally in these kind of endings, A piece up is enough to win.
Jul-28-04  alexandrovm: White is a piece up, and a pawn up, and you say this looks like a draw!! PLEASE!!! :-)
Jul-29-04  chess4games: <Zenchess> <alexandrovm> I said it is a draw because when I play chess with someone, a piece up dosen't make any difference. And yes I've won even i were a piece down.
Jul-29-04  alexandrovm: good for you, and by the way, you are right. The game can only we won if you have a better potential mate attack than you oponent (position over material). But maybe you didn't took a look at the position closely. Not only Garry is up on material, but he also has the position advantage. So there is no way this game could be drawn. Ian Rogers as a Grand Master knew that, that's why he resigned :-)

  keypusher: So was Kasparov when he played this game!
Mar-15-05  FLCLlove: <Kingsandsquares>, wan't that a raash statement? 13 years old has very little to do with anything with the proper dedication/talent. People who know chess well will resign after being down a piece.
Sep-16-05  rjsolcruz: 1976 in Manila. Kasparov was here then?
Sep-16-05  RookFile: Well, in the final position,
something like Re8 will happen,
black will block with ...Bf8,
then white can play Ndf6 and Nd7.

Or, black will play his rook back
to ...f8, allowing Re7 and Ndf6,
and lights out on h7.

Oct-02-05  Chess Addict: If Black interposes the check with the Bishop, he will lose the Queen due to the Knight check.
Jan-28-06  HamasHamas: A clear case of out-tactic-ing the
opponent. I've found the tactics to
be quite complicated, however, had
Black played 25...Rcd8! instead, yet
they will still favor White:

25...Rcd8! 26 Nxf5 Rxf5 27 Qxf5 Rf8
28 Qd3! (best) wins. Or if 26...Rxd5,
the pinpoint accurate 27 Qc3+! wins.
That leaves 26...Qg5 27 Qc3+ Bg7
(On 27...Kg8, among others, 28 Nf6+!
is quite strong) 28 Nxg7 Qxg7
29 Qxg7+ (forced) Kxg7 30 Rd4!
White is winning the ending, because
the f-pawn is vulnerable on f4 or f3:
30...f3 31 g4! Bf7 32 c4! wins.

May-07-06  spirit: can someone please explain what is wrong with 30...Bg7
May-07-06  Fischeristhebest: if 30.-Bg7 31.N4g6+ Bxg6 32.Qxh4.
May-11-06  spirit: thanks <fischeristhebest> i didn't see that...fantastic ending by GAZZA
Sep-02-06  mccarthpm: I think IAN ROGERS was about 15 yrs when this was played-really a beautiful game by kasparov
Apr-21-07  essekids: wicked use of the knights by Garry prevail!
Aug-28-14  MrJafari: Comparing other Kasparov's games,I think it was not so interesting!Kasparov won at a pace to pace slow process...
