Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-05  Poisonpawns: This game is awsome, the young Kasparov playing the caro-kann and velimirovic attacks the attacker.Its a wild game but white should play 20.Bg2 Nd7 putting more pressure on the d-pawn to retain a minimal advantage
Apr-23-05  Everett: Don't see why white's reason to move his knight three times in the opening only to exchange it off on its fourth move, for a terrible bishop no less. Perhaps hopes for a win end here.
Sep-24-05  Petrocephalon: "Its a wild game but white should play 20.Bg2 Nd7 putting more pressure on the d-pawn to retain a minimal advantage."

There may be a piece sac in that line:
20.Bg2 Nxe5 21.dxe5 d4. I've toyed around with this but remain uncertain of its merit. As you have a high rating, I'd be interested in your opinion.

The difference between 20.Bg2 vs. 20.Rg1 is that in the latter case the light bishop can block on e2, and the dark bishop can land more securely on g5.

Sep-25-05  Petrocephalon: Or could I trouble someone for a computer analysis? I'm a bit stuck figuring out if it really works. At any rate Kasparov seems to have been preparing that sac...

  tpstar: Fritz 7 Deep Position Analysis [20MB]:

20. Bg2 Nxe5 21. dxe5 d4

1) 22. Kg3 Be7 23. h3 g5 24. Bf2 Rc2 25. Qxb7 [3.09/12]

2) 22. Kg3 Be7 23. Rhe1 Qe6 24. Bd2 Rc2 25. Qxb7 [2.09/11]

3) 22. Kg3 Rc4 23. Bg5 Rh8 24. Rhf1 Rc7 25. Qb3 [3.50/11]

Fritz calls 19. Rd1 the last book move (lol) and then 20. Bg2 Nxe5 (no punctuation!?) 21. dxe5 d4? preferring 21 ... Rc2+ 22. Kf1 Bc5 23. Bxc5 Qb5+ 24. Rd3 Qxc5 instead. So the initial sacrifice is speculative, but the follow-up 21 ... d4? is a misstep.

Sep-25-05  Petrocephalon: Thanks.
21..Rc2+ was my first thought, but I evaluated it as insufficient, and turned to 21..d4.

I had calculated 22.Kg3 Qe7 as good for black, so I'll have to re-examine that with a board.

I thought the main line would be 20.Bg2 Nxe5 21.dxe5 d4 22.Bd2 Rc2 23.Ke1 d3, branching off into 24.Bxb4 and 24.Qxb7.

Apr-30-15  offramp: I find it a huge tribute that even Kasparov was too frightened to play a Sicilian against the great Velimirovic!
Nov-12-20  fisayo123: Against the inventor of the Velimirovic attack in the Sicilian classical, Kasparov goes back to his Caro-kann roots and he's actually on the ropes here.

But as is usually the case with some Caro's, black is positionally worse but his pawn structure is very solid and flexible.
