Mar-24-05  Ernesto7: WHOOOO
Qxc8 and Qa3+ and it'll be mate....
what an awsm game
Apr-26-05  sharkbenjamin: Unbelievable for a 13 year old!
Aug-22-06  The Onyx Dragoon: If 36. ...Qxc8, then Qa3+, forcing Qc5, which will be taken by the d pawn. Still, nice job by both sides.
Oct-27-06  Tenderfoot: Seems like an odd opening for Kasparov? Great game, I suppose black should've done something about that knight a little sooner.
Oct-27-06  Open Defence: this idea can also be tried in the Sicilian... 1e4 c5 2Ne2
Oct-27-06  Open Defence: but Black probably has 1e4 c5 2Ne2 d5 3e5 d4
Oct-27-06  mrbasso: 3.e5? is a stupid move and d4 is not the best answer.
Aug-06-07  Giearth: <>, isn't this guy/game supposed to be in Dmitry D Kaiumov
Sep-09-07  kingsindian2006: does white not castle because of to much queen side pressure or because he moved his g pawn forward ?
Apr-17-09  sheaf: after 5..e6 black gets a position arising from french advance variation except that black is a tempo behind (white to move)..garry tricked him with the move order..
Dec-15-09  shreyaslathi: guys i am a new here why did black did not take up tht white knight with his g7xf6 move whts wrong here guys
Dec-15-09  Jim Bartle: Probably because of Qh6 check.
Dec-15-09  TheChessGuy: <shreyaslathi> If 33...gxf6?, then 34.exf6 Ng6 35.b5 and White wins because he's about to get the piece back with interest and get a monster passed b-pawn on the sixth rank.
Dec-15-09  zanshin: White move 33, it takes Rybka 3 some time to find Kasparov's knight sac:

Dec-16-09  Jim Bartle: Great stuff. My superficial Qh6 was a disaster.
Oct-05-14  MrJafari: marvelous! I couldn't detect the position even after taking the Rook by the Queen! How I'm weak at seeing these situations!
