Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-16-06  goragoragora: Certainly a great tactical game
by young Gazz, and we can appreciate
that he didn't want to choose
20...Bxd5 21 Nxd5 Qxh2+, which wins
fairly prosaically.
Hard to see all the mates, such
as 22 Bxf7 Qxg2+ 23 Ke1 (23 Ke2
Qxf2+ 24 Kd3 Ne5 mate!) Qg1+
24 Kd2 Qxf2+ 25 Ne2 Qe3+ 26 Kc2
(26 Ke1 Bh4+!) Be4+ 27 Kb2 Bf6+!
Mar-16-06  notyetagm: This has to be the greatest thrashing of the Panov-Botvinnik attack I have ever seen.

In the position after 18 ... ♘g4, White seems determined not to defend his kingside. All his pieces are over on the queenside, just inviting Gazza to attack the bare White king and you do not have to ask Kasparov twice to do that.
