Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-15-04  ConLaMismaMano: 23...Qe5! Nice move.

If 24.Kxf2 then Rf8+ 25.Kg1 Qe1+ 26.Kh2 Rf2 winning the Queen and the game.

May-09-05  Orbitkind: I can't imagine how powerful and self-critical Kasparov's calculations must be. This end sequence is astonishing.
Jun-23-05  lopium: What if 20.Qxe6+ ?
Jun-23-05  aw1988: It's an option, but I think Tseshkovsky's game is miserable in any variation.
Aug-06-05  sfm: After 20.Qxe6+ black simply plays Kh8 and white is defenseless. Black threatens moves like Qg3+, Rxf2, Rae8 and Ne5 and the total devastation is few moves away - like it was in the game :-)
Jul-18-06  notyetagm: 20 ... ♖xf2! 21 ♖xf2 ♕g3+ 22 ♕g2 ♗xf2+ is yet another great example of <EXCHANGING ON THE PINNING SQUARE>, the f2-square lined up along the a7-g1 diagonal with the White g1-king.
Oct-17-06  Gowe: Amazing game.
Jun-16-14  MadanaMohana: I rather like 10.Kh1 followed by f4 in the opening. Be3-g1 as well at some point. Any thoughts?
