Jun-29-07  mravikiran: 19. ... Qd4 was a looser... instead
19. ... Rxg2+
20. Kh1 Rxh2+!!
21. KxR Qh4+
22. Kg1 Qg3+
23. Kh1 Qg2#

If the king does not take the rook after 20. ... Rxh2+, then 21. Kg1 Rg2+
22. Kh1 Qh4#

And kasparov was gone. This was a very good play by Srinivasan, and he was a piece ahead.

Jun-29-07  Eatman: White does have 21. ... Qh4+ 22. Qh3 but then simply 22. ... Nxf1+ 23. Kg2 Qxh3+ 24. Kxh3 Re8 leaves black a piece up
Jun-30-07  amuralid: I think Kasparov overlooked the fact that the knight on e2 was unprotected when he played 15. Bf5.
Jan-01-08  Le Mulet: I made a chess logiciel analyse the position after 19 bxc6 and there is another variant instead 19... Txg2+ : 19...Cxf1 20.Fa3+ Ce7 21.Dxe2 Dd4+ 22.Rxf1 Dxa1+ 23.Rf2 Dd4+ 24.Rf1 Dxf4+ and black has a rook instead a piece
Jan-01-08  Le Mulet: i give the variant in english notation, i forgot in the first post :19...Nxf1 20.Ba3+ Ne7 21.Qxe2 Qd4+ 22.Kxf1 Qxa1+ 23.Kf2 Qd4+ 24.Kf1 Qxf4+
Oct-31-08  zimatetsu: Mravikiran is right Rg2 will be win for srinivasan. Also srinivasan missed 17..Ndb4 !! instead of Ne3?!. Then play continues 18.Rb1 bxc5, 19.a3 Nd3!!. With advantage for black. Kasparov won this game anyway not before offering srinivasan a chance.
May-22-09  Makiavel: good analysis le mulet..cant find a way out after Nf1!!
