Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-05  who: Ah. Had Shirov only recognized that 35.Rxd2! Qxd2 36.Qf2 is absolutely winning, the whole psychological advantage that Kasparov had may never have existed.
Dec-04-05  Bobwhoosta: That might even be the reason he had the psychological advantage, Shirov desperate from the point of "Oh my goodness, did I really miss that!?!?!".
Jun-25-10  freakclub: 35. Rxd2 is answered by 35...Qxd2 36.Qf2 Bd4!

If 37. Nxd4, then 37...Rxg2! If 37. Qxd4, then 37...Qxg2#

Jul-26-10  kiseiju: you're missing that 37.Qxd4 is check!
Sep-03-10  nelech: so 34 Kh8 is wrong . Why not 35 ... Rxf2 instead ?

  Sastre: <35...Rxf2 36.Qxg5 Rxg2+ 37.Qxg2 fxg2 38.Nxg7 Rxg7 39.b4> appears to be winning for White.
Sep-03-10  nelech: Sorry i meant 34 ... Rxf2
Sep-03-10  anandrulez: As who said is it not just winning for white ? after 35 Rxd2 ?

  Sastre: <Sorry i meant 34 ... Rxf2> Yes, I think 34...Rxf2 is better than 34...Kh8, though White still seems to have an advantage.
Sep-03-10  Aspirador: <As who said is it not just winning for white ? after 35 Rxd2 ?> Yes, it is. Btw, After 35.Qe3??, even stronger is 35...Bd4! winning immediately. Maybe both players were in time trouble.
Mar-17-12  gaatab: 35.r:d2 does not work, after:
35...q:d2 36.qf2 q:f2 37.k:f2 b:b2 38.rb1 f:g2 39.kg1 (nothing better) h3,and white is dead...
Jun-24-12  Cemoblanca: Classical games: Garry Kasparov beat Alexey Shirov 15 to 0, with 14 draws. Wow! ;0)

  Plaskett: The final position, or something similar, may be seen in a game Adams - Rapport, and Short-Larsen, Brussels 1987. By the way, circa 1989, Kasparov said Gelfand would be his next chllenger. His lifetime score against Gelfand is 13 - 0.
