Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-07  GeauxCool: 4...Bb4+ Black pushes for the attack, but after 20...Qh6, the queen causes little effect on the remainder of the game. Kasparov showed no fear in pushing his king pawns especially to lock her out of center.
Feb-12-07  Tacticstudent: In my opinion, 6. ..., ♘c6 is a bit passive. Better was c5.

After 23. ♖ac1!, Black's game has crumbled. White controls the e-file and has a powerful attack in the kingside.

Nov-28-11  ColdSong: Certainly not Kasparov's worst game.Even if Speelman's approach is provocative,10 Nd2!,11 f3!,maybe 25 Qc5!,31 h5!,and the way Garry comes to these moves are all masterful.
