Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-17-07  Billy Ray Valentine: No kibitzing for this game?
Jul-28-07  unixfanatic: This game makes me think the King's Indian could beat anybody - Kasparov is simply amazing.
Nov-08-09  mendellevin: What a piece of art, so simple and logical
Dec-27-10  KingG: 10.Rb1 looks like a waste of time, and I can't work out what the purpose of it was. The normal 10.b4 could have been played immediately. In these kind of King's Indian positions you can't really afford to waste too much time or else Black's attack risks crashing through quite quickly.
Jun-01-15  SpiritedReposte: Starting with 27. ...Nxh2! The attack is swift and final.
May-22-19  pencuse: A lot of crazy moves by Kasparov:

18. ... b6! stops the pawn attack of White
24. ... a4! forces the white rook to go to a square which reduces the mobility of the minor pieces of White on the Queen side,

26. ... ♖c8! the last major piece comes into the game, which can be sacrificed for a minor piece of White on the Queen side, which happens in 28. ... ♖xc4!

A very good game of Kasparov. It is a very good lesson for any chess player to learn how to combine tactics with strategic thinking. Worth examining several times.

May-22-19  Granny O Doul: 35. Qd2 sets a nice trap, because there's no real reason White ought to have a good answer to ...Qxa3; it just happens that 36. Rc3 traps Black's queen. Unfortunately, it's still just one move deep, so not much chance of Garry missing it.
Feb-11-21  Alekhinelives: I play the KID myself. It’s the inspiring to watch how it’s REALLY played!! A true artist!
