Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-04  chesscookie: Yay, 1st to kibitz!

At first, i thought Garry was using his knights beautifully for a great attack but then i noticed that he only wanted to confuse and intimidate his opponent and perhaps got in too deep. Anyway, why did he want to draw so early , around the 19th move??

  lostemperor: I wonder if mahmoudkubba can explain this pun to me?
Sep-05-04  Eatman: To those who complain that Kasp does not play under 2700 players too often. He really has no reason, as he does pretty well taking on 4 of them at the same time as was the case here. Garry Kasparov - Czech National Team(almost 2600 average ELO): 5.5 - 2.5 (2 round match)
Sep-05-04  thermal: Has anybody analyzed the endgame after 74...Re4+ 75 Qxe4 Nxe4 76 Kxe4
Sep-05-04  kevin86: <Thermal> let's try:74...♔f7 75 ♔f5 h4 76b3 h5 77 b4 ♔f8 78 ♔e6 ♔e8 79 f7+ ♔f8 80 ♔f6 h3 81 gxh3 h4 82 ♔e6 black must either abandon the queening square or play b6-allowing white to queen that pawn. White can put black in zugzwang-but black cannot do the same---white wins
Sep-05-04  kevin86: Alternate pun:Oral surgery on the champ.
Sep-05-04  Giancarlo: <Eurotel Trophy Simul 2001> Simul eh? Looks like <Feriocous Beast> isn't the only one to beat Kasparov in a simul. :-)
Sep-05-04  DanielBryant: Giancarlo, is that game in the database?
Sep-05-04  me to play: I'm a bit surprised that grandmasters would be willing to participate on the "team side" of this type of simul. I realize that we are talking about Kasparov here, but still if I were a GM I think losing a game in this situation would be a little embarrassing, while winning would be a somewhat "diminished accomplishment". I would rather take my chances one on one.
Sep-05-04  Giancarlo: <Daniel Bryant>
I'm pretty sure <FB's> game against Kaspy was made up. Hence the ":-)"

  Honza Cervenka: <I'm a bit surprised that grandmasters would be willing to participate on the "team side" of this type of simul.> It is a good training for them as Gazza even playing on four boards is terribly strong and dangerous opponent and it is (definitely in case of Tomas Oral) also probably the only chance to play against the World Champion.
