Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-03  dr gogusetti n rao: This surely can't be the Sicilian, Alapin opening; it must be a variation of Queen's Gambit Declined.

Will somebody please enlighten?

Premium Chessgames Member It was a mistake; fixed. Thanks.
Oct-06-03  PinkPanther: Well Siclian or QDG it's an ass kicking by Dolmatov at any rate.
Oct-02-04  boyhimud: Why not 26)Rxe6 for a more exciting finish.
Oct-02-04  clocked: <PinkPanther> not really an ass kicking... Kasparov chose to give up the d-pawn because he thought he had enough pressure on e6 and g7. Dolmatov then made his own mistake with 24...Ne4? which allowed 25.Rc7 Rd1 26.Qxg7 =
Dec-27-04  ArturoRivera: Nc6 was clearly a blunder
May-27-05  alexandrovm: 24. Bb5 seems to be the mistake
Aug-26-05  YouRang: I'm sure Kasparov is lost here, but what if he tries 26. Rxe5? This attacks the queen and threatens a discovered attack (such as Re7) on the king.
Aug-26-05  Anastasia: 26.Rxe6 Qxb5
Aug-26-05  YouRang: Jeez, I'm blind. I figured that there had to be something wrong with my move. Thanks <Anastasia>, for pointing it out for me.
Feb-13-06  aazqua: F5 looks like a terrible move. At the end, what's wrong with R*b6?
Apr-22-06  Whitehat1963: Kaspy's only loss as white against the QGD!
Aug-30-06  Bufon: <Whitehat1963> Are you sure??
May-14-10  tivrfoa: <clocked> nice spotted.
Mar-20-11  Whitehat1963: <Bufon>, now he has two losses:

Feb-20-16  The17thPawn: I guess Dolmatov was forced to win 1 with black as he only got one shot with the white pieces vs. Kaspy.
Feb-21-16  Ayaend: <aazqua>
26.Rxb6 - axb5
27.Rxe6 - Qd5
Dec-01-16  MrJafari: After 25 ♕b3 I thought that White is winning, but suddenly he lost after 25...a6! and that's the magic of chess!
Sep-13-17  gabskie: the only move is Rc7
if sergey move in rd1 ks\asparov gonna move in Qxg7 kasparov win in poon
