Jun-15-08  ToTheDeath: Playing the Queen's Indian against Kasparov in the early 80's was equivalent to saying "I want to be raped and mated in 25 moves."

I generally don't find anything with the word rape in it funny, but I confess that this made me laugh. The game is brutal.

Apr-10-17  Howard: The 5.a3 was a specialty of Kasparov's in the QID.

He did have at least one fiasco with it though---the first game of his Candidates match against Korchnoi!

Apr-10-17  ChessHigherCat: Great analysis by <Albertan>, but at first I didn't understand this: <In this line: 15.exd5 Bd6? Blockading the passed pawn.
[ Better was ¹15...Qe7+ 16.Ne5 Rd8 17.Qe3 Rd6 18.Nc4 Nxc4 19.Bxc4=]>

My first thought was if 15...Qe7+ 16.Ne5 then f6 wins the pinned knight, but in fact if 16...f6 then 17. d6 threatening the Q and then d7+.

Murey may look like a "pigeon" here, as they say in France, but I watched him blitz a million times in Paris and I guarantee you he'd make mincemeat out of most of us mice. Anyway, who shines against Kasparaov?
