Jun-03-05  notyetagm: <Take the backrank defender!> 39 ... ♕xb1+! 40 ♔xb1 ♖d1#.
Jun-03-05  Everett: Speelman could have helped himself a bit if he got his bishop on g1 into the game, geesh! Why is he taking pawns and mixing things up with that just sitting there?
Apr-24-06  notyetagm: <Everett> Well, it was a rapid game.
Mar-18-07  I3illieJoe: 19.g3 is a mistake, for it makes white's dark-squared bishop be stuck between h2 and g1, and it also makes the rook at h1 useless. Instead, either 19.f3 , or 19. 0-0-0 looks better.
Nov-25-08  hedgeh0g: BRRRRRRRRRRRAp!!!!
Nov-25-08  sallom89: sacs everywhere, amazing aggressive young Kasparov.
Feb-16-09  DaveyL: 34. ... Ra3 would have been interesting, though Gazza was already winning by this point anyway.

  Retireborn: According to Ray Keene in the Spectator, this was part of a Soviet v Rest of World rapid match, organized with the aim of raising money for UNICEF and victims of Armenia disaster.

Scheveningen-style with 8 players each, and the Soviets won by 32.5 to 31.5.

The Soviet team was Kasparov, Gurevich, Chernin, Dolmatov, Azmaiparashvili, Beliavsky, Sokolov and Psakhis.

The World team was Korchnoi, Ljubojevic, Portisch, Andersson, Nogueiras, Speelman, Hjartarsson, and Illescas.

Sep-02-20  SChesshevsky: Seems after ...f6, White's decision for Bh4 can be quite consequential. Probably need some upfront ideas on its future before going that way. Here Kasparov makes the B look pretty silly for the rest of the game.

Even current WC had trouble getting it active in this recent game:
