  keypusher: Curious opening. Kasparov plays Botvinnik to Ivanovic's Capablanca, but it's all over much more quickly. http://911review.com/pm/markup/inde...
Dec-30-08  KingG: <keypusher> Insteresting website, but what does it have to do with this game? ;-)

Unless I'm missing something, <keypusher> probably meant to link to the game Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938.

  keypusher: <KingG> Wow, how did that happen? Thanks, KingG. Even though you foiled my attempt to surrepetitiously spread the Troof! :-)
Jun-13-10  Catfriend: 26.Rg3+ shows fully just how lost is Black's position.

The intuitive 26..Rg6 response loses to 27.Rxg6+ fxg6 28.Qxg6+ Kh8 (Qg7 Qxe8+) 29.Rf7

Escaping to f8 loses Nh7, and Kh8 is defeated by 27.Qxh7+ Kxh7 28.Rh5+ Rh6 29.Rxh6# - in this line, Bc1 gets to participate!

Aug-10-10  rigel1503: Keypusher: yes the troof! Not the truth. Conspiracy theories the great assembly line of Internet excrement.
Jul-10-19  Alibaba2007: 25...Rg6 26. Rh3 Rg7 27. Bh6 Rg6 28. Bf8

<Everett> I'm not even going to try to do better than that.

  OhioChessFan: Conspiracy theories tend to be like that.
Nov-13-20  fisayo123: One of the few times you'll see a young Kasparov allow the Nimzo-Indian. And his play against it is not so convincing in this game till Ivanovic plays the committal 14...c4 and doesn't back it up with 15...h5! , making it hard for white to make the crucial e4 break
