Mar-08-06  PizzatheHut: Kasparov seems to always get such great piece activity in his games. His play in the Tarrasch with the isolated d-pawn is truly fun to watch.

Nov-13-20  fisayo123: The first meeting between Gazza and one of the other bright stars from his generation. Kasparov sees all the tactics while Nikolic doesn't seem to see any. Kasparov then sort of makes a meal out of the resulting endgame.
