Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-13-05  AlexanderMorphy: wow, great win by this ZAID guy...and against that type of opposition this win is probably his greatest achievment in life!
Oct-13-05  gadfly: <Alex> Well, Garry in 1977 was not exactly the player that he became in his later years. As a matter of fact, he was exactly your age when he played this game, if I am not mistaken.

4estit ni 6ampion, mejdu drugoto. Davai Vesko!!!

Oct-14-05  AlexanderMorphy: Yes you are correct, Kasparov was only 14! well i didn't really look at the date sorry about that! Bravo na Topalov, veche imame svetovni championi pri maje i geni!
Nov-18-08  peristilo: Anyway Garry was a very strong player by the time. So I think his opponent can be proud for defeating the greatest player ever!
Oct-25-16  MrJafari: Why not 20.♗xb4 ?
Jul-05-17  kaboum1: The rook cannot take the pawn because of the check on c5. Then a5, Nc5 or Qc5 (with a possible Ng4) give counter play. The a1-h8 diagonal is also a weapon if white bishop moves for defence. At the end, white is cramped and loses initiative. Not a good idea against Kasparov...
