Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-04  TheParadigm: This is Kasparov's last victory with the King's Indian. Somewhat symbolic of his decline from master of chess to just number one.
Sep-24-04  RisingChamp: When was the last time he played the Kings Indian?
Sep-26-04  TheParadigm: He last played it in 1998. I believe he drew that game.
Mar-01-06  alexandrovm: <RisingChamp: When was the last time he played the Kings Indian?> 1997. In 1996 and 1997 he had some horrible results with king's indian. Then he gave it up. before that he was great with that defense.
Sep-24-06  SniperOnG7: Such a great shame that he gave up this dynamic defence. He then went onto the grunfeld...which didn't do much good for him did it? Plus, if he had played the KID against Kramnik, the latter would have surely chosen the Bayonet attack (or his earlier weapon of the Petrosian). Such a predictable choice whould have allowed Kasparov to prepare thoroughly.
Sep-12-14  yureesystem: What a brilliant game by Kasparov, the sacrifice of his queen pawn on d6 and his pieces become so active.
Sep-12-14  tonsillolith: Why <37. Ng7> instead of <37. Kh6>? The f4 or g3 squares seem like such sweet spots for the knight, aiding the two rooks in attacking the White king. Why not move the king and keep the knight poised? The king doesn't seem in need of any extra protection up top.
