Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-24-07  Hot Logic: Kasparov vs Kiril Georgiev, 1988 Do not anger the Beast! Kasparov really takes Georgiev apart in this game and by the 17th move has already developed an incredible positional plus.
Apr-24-07  OneArmedScissor: This was one hell of a game.
Jan-18-08  Confuse: and with no preparation to boot : ) according to schiller's story in the comments here: Kasparov vs Kiril Georgiev, 1988
Nov-28-08  fich: This should be dubbed the "Stalemate Revenge" game. LOl!
Dec-20-08  Bobsterman3000: Wow, Kasparov seems to do this quite a bit - once the opponent is reduced to rook and minor piece he advances his king up the board and uses his majesty as a weapon...

Mar-28-17  Eric Farley: Against this "opposition" is big deal!

  perfidious: No miracle was forthcoming in this meeting at the finish--Georgiev had his go at it earlier that year.
