Jan-02-05  pilobolus: Nice Game Magerramov!
Jan-30-06  OKKarpovisgreat: 28 ? Why not just 28 Qxc4+ ?
Feb-16-09  aazqua: Really odd game by Kasparov. Presumably he was pretty young back then.
Feb-16-09  aazqua: Turns out he was 13. Then again, Kasparov at 13 was no slouch.
Nov-10-09  WhenHarryMetSally: I thought: wow Kasparov lost!

and then i realised kasparov was only 13.

Feb-19-11  ColdSong: The curious 8...d4 does not seem completely stupid to me.Has it ever been played?
Nov-18-11  DubbleX: wow only 13 amazing!
Oct-07-12  SetNoEscapeOn: <Nikitin advised me not to play in this tournament: he felt that my nervous system was not yet ready for such a severe test. But I very much wanted to battle against masters! Alas, my trainer was largely right... A crisis came as early as the 2nd round, in my game with Magerramov. After equalising in the Open Variation of the Ruy Lopez, on the 20th move Elmar suddenly left a pawn en prise. By the 28th move I was just a step away from winning, but here I 'carried out a spectacular combination with a piece sacrifice'- I made two terrible moves in a row, overlooked a deadly counter-blow by the opponent- and capitulated!'>
