Feb-28-06  alexandrovm: 19. Nxc7 very nice and unexpected.
I don't really understand 21. Nf6, maybe is the same idea as before, white can make the move Rd8, trying to win material or the queen. Black seems to defend well and later falls with a final attack of queen and rook. The king is exposed, nothing he can do...
Mar-26-09  brucejavier: kasparov had great imagintation in this game!
Mar-27-09  arsen387: What a great tactical game by Garry!
Nxc7 and Nf6 are great moves. If after 19.Nxc7 black tries Qxc7, then they'll get immediately killed with 20.Rd8+!, e.g. 20.Rd8+ Bf8 21.Qxc7 Rxc7 22.Bxe5

and black's position is ridiculous, while white simply threatens Bc4 mating.

Another great shot is 21.Nf6!+, with the idea that if Bxf6 22.Bxf6 Rxf6? then Rd8 wins the Q

And all this was wrapped up with a pretty mating net in the end. Bravo Garry!

Nov-08-16  MrJafari: I think Black's 38th move was a wrong choice and collapsed his position...
