Jul-05-05  Ernesto7: 43..Qh5+ is coming and if the white queen moves Qf4+ wins a rook. Great game by Kasparov.
Apr-24-06  notyetagm: <Ernesto7> And this game was played in a simul!

This game is a good illustration that <there are always threats against an exposed king> and that <it is worth a substantial sacrifice of material to expose the enemy king>.

  chrisfalter: Black's immediate threat in the final position is 42 ... Qh5+ 43 Qh3 Bc7+ 44. Kg1 Qxh3 .

If 42. Qb8+ Kh7, there is no way to stop 43... Bf2 and 44. ... Qh5# that does not lose substantial material.

If 42. Rc3, Qh5+ 43. Qh3 Bc7+ 44. Kg1 Qg5+ forks the d2 rook.

If 42. Qh4, g5 forces 43. Qg3, after which the mating net 43 ... h5 44. Rc3 h4 45. Qe1 Qf4+ 46. Kh3 Bf5+ 47. Kg2 h3+ 48. Kh1 Be4+

I would welcome any corrections or additions to my analysis!

Dec-13-15  ToTheDeath: Some incredible sacs here. Those bishops were nasty.
Jul-14-17  Strelets: Z├╝ger lost on time according to Igor Stohl's first book of Gazza's games. It's even more impressive when you realize he did this while simultaneously beating six players at a +5 -0 =1 clip.
