Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-05  TopaLove: This game is fantastic. I only understood 16 ... a3 after 18 ... e4. It pins the knight on c3 cause of the threat axb2. Then Kasparov starts his fireworks ...
Dec-04-05  KingG: Unbelievable game.
Feb-13-07  abcpokerboy: Holy mackerel! This has to be one of the strongest examples either of preparation or intuition I've ever seen. Either way it is another Kasparov classic attack !
May-26-07  BlackNightmare: kasparov famous dashing/aggressive KID attack ...nah its the whole style! please comebaackkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

  chancho: This was one of six games that Garry played in a simul against the French national team. (he won 4.5 to 1.5)
Nov-18-08  ChessYouGood: Great game Gaz
Nov-30-08  hedgeh0g: <What happens after 13.Rxh5?>

Probably ...f5.

Great game.

Mar-04-09  KingG: It's absolutely incredible that this game was played in a simul.
Jun-10-09  hedgeh0g: I'm going to Fritz this game. I can't begin to grasp some of the complications Kasparov dives into in his classic KID games.
Jun-10-09  ozmikey: Sometimes in the King's Indian it seems that no matter how much material White is ahead, if that g7 bishop is unleashed and White's king-side is under the cosh, Black always seems to win.

My old friend Ry Curtis (R Curtis), a former Oz junior champion, had a period where he would regularly go a piece down in the KID and still come up with the point!

Mar-19-10  Garech: 29. Be3 apparently is the beginning of the end (according to Fritz, but only on shallow depth) - but before then white was doing okay, and even missed some strong continuations. The decisive mistake of course was 31.Rf4. Great game in any case - Kasparov at his dynamic best in the good old days when he played the KID.
May-22-10  Catfriend: I don't usually like comments consisting purely of praise and worship, without anything substantial - but now I'll do it anyway.

<<Holy @#$%!>> Sometimes we forget just how horrible and all-destroying The Beast could be.

Jul-30-12  talljack: I don't have Fritz installed at the moment, (taking a break) but I can't find a win or even a draw here for Black after 28. Rxf4 instead of Bxf4. Anyone see it?
Feb-03-13  IndigoViolet: Houdini 1.5 confirms that 28.Rxf4 still leaves Black with a serious, probably winning advantage:

28.Rxf4 Bxf4 29.Bxf4 e3 30.Bxe3 Bxb1 31.Nxb1 Qe7! or 29.Rxb2 Be5! 30.Rb3 (30.Ng3 h5 31.gxh6 Qf6!) Bh5 31.Kg1 Bf3!

Nov-16-13  talljack: Thanks, Indigo.

  ToTheDeath: Hammer blow after Hammer blow! The French GM got taught a lesson about what happens when you try to pawn storm Kasparov's King's Indian!
