  patzer2: Kasparov wins with two quiet moves in succession. Kasparov's 42...Rd3! is a forceful winning move. The threat of the decisive 43...Rd2!, which follows, appears unstoppable.

In the final position, Black must give up decisive material to prevent mate (e.g. 44. Rb8+ Kh7 45. Rb7+ Kh6 46. Rb1 Rg2+ 47. Kf1 Nd7+ ).

Feb-01-09  laskereshevsky: this game was played in the seventh round of the under 20 world championship helded in Dortmund August 1980... 58 young players from 55 country joined it. After four round -- Garry Kasparov (USSR), D. Arnason (ICELAND), R. Achesson (SWEDEN) and A. Neglescu (ROMANIA) were leading with 3.5 points...

Then Garry beat D. Arnason and, in the sixth round, R. Achesson, becoming the leader with a whole point advantage...

in the seventh round the victory over Tempone gived to him a 1.5 points advantage over the second.

Kasparov wrote comments over this game, almost six pages (!). Garry gived a clear advantage to his opponent after 21 moves...
