Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-05  bomb the bishop: 16. Bh6! I think that made the game very favorable for white
Aug-11-05  shortsight: I think most GM against Kaspy now would have resign by move 27. After 27 moves, Yusupov played on mainly could be because of Kasparov age. He thought the then young Kaspy might blunder somehow.
Apr-21-07  SniperOnG7: 13. Qd5! 15. Qxg2! 16. Bh6! 22. Rf5-d5! CREATIVE use of resourses!

  Richard Taylor: This looks like a draw to me. If now

41 ... Kxc4 42 h5 Kc3 43 h6 Kb2 44 h7 Kxa2 45 h8=Q Kb1 it looks like a theoretical draw to me.

Jun-07-07  Aspirador: <Richard> This is not drawn after 45...Kb1. The queen approaches with check until it checks on b4: Qb4+ Ka2 when black will be in zugzwang. The a-pawn only draws if it is already on the 7th rank.
Jun-07-07  Wolfgang01: shortsight: Kasparov (1963) and Yussupov (1960) differ just three years. Sometimes one won't resign so early.
Jul-02-17  LA MAN: I like 23 for white pop is better in my opinion.
Jul-02-17  LA MAN: I like 23 for white pxp is better in my opinion.
Jul-26-17  bla bla: why not 29...Rd2 and winning the pown?

  Retireborn: 29...Rd2 30.Bb3 Rxb2 31.Bxf7+ Kf8 32.Bxh5 Rxa2 33.Bxg4 ought not to be difficult for White - wins with his h-pawn.

After 17...h5 Black is lost, but the better 17...Bc5+ 18.Kh1 Rae8 does not really equalise either.

Nov-07-20  fisayo123: Kasparov was the master at creating complications out of thin air and he was almost unplayable from these complications. Even at just 16
