Kibitzer's Corner
May-24-04  Whitehat1963: Simul or not, black displays nice technique.
Sep-11-05  Queens Gambit: I dont see the great technique, i see some horrible blunders of Kasparov indeed.
Sep-11-05  Excaliber: Why did Kasparov play 16.Ba6?
Mar-08-08  D.Observer: Why resign after 25. ... Qc4?
Mar-08-08  zoat22: even a loss in a simul is rather rare for kasparov, and especially against a player such as < w runkel > but as andrew martin says, kasparov always chose strong opponents for himself in simuls, even if they werent the highest rated...
Mar-09-08  MichAdams: <Why resign after 25. ... Qc4?>

Because it's considered infra dig for a world champion to play on a piece down without compensation against an amateur.

Jun-18-08  hedgeh0g: <Why did Kasparov play 16.Ba6?>

It was Bxa6, suggesting material was captured. Material gain therefore being the purpose of Kasparov's 16th move.

Jun-24-08  mmmsplay10: 18. Qxc4 saves the piece, I think
And Bd2 followed by building up on the a-file seems to give white counterplay

A bit of an obtuse response, considering 16.Bxa6 allows black's ability to break in the center, take over the initiative, and net a piece a few moves later.
