Apr-12-03  BeautyInChess: 27 Be3!? Keeping the C-File is worth a piece here! Why not (27) Rxb7 Rc8 (28) Bxb5 axb5 (29)Rxb5, at this point I think that the a pawn is promoteable. This way white wins a pawn and has an advanced passed pawn. I could be wrong. But, I doubt it. ;)
Apr-12-03  BeautyInChess: Oh... I see now. If 27) Rxb7 Rxa7 28) Rxa7? with the threat of Bd4+ exchanging the rooks with a likely draw due to bishops of opposite colors. Kasparov goes for the win instead. I guess I was _wrong_. Pride comes before a fall.
Nov-29-05  Guest1825: I like this game, it's easy to follow.
