Feb-22-06  AdrianP: 27 Be7!!
Mar-28-06  zev22407: Kasparov increase his control of the board with every move and with the blow B-E7 wins heavy matirial.
May-27-06  spirit: nice finish!
Dec-12-07  AlfieNoakes: I don't understand why he didn't play Be7 the move before?
Dec-12-07  scholes: There was no problem with Nc6xa7 either .Perhaps he was just toying with kiril as extra tempo does not helps black .

  GlassCow: 26 Be7? and Georgiev just trades his rook for Kasparov's very important bishop and knight. 27 Be7!, and if Georgiev takes the bishop, Kasparov captures back with check which leaves the other black rook on c7 hanging.
Apr-05-14  tranquilsimplicity: In several variations black is toast! Resistance is futile; game up. Incredible combinatorial acumen by Kasparov.#

  plang: Georgiev with 6..Nbd7, 7..g6 and 8..b5?! was trying to avoid Kasparov's theoretical knowledge. After 9 a4! Black was already worse. At the 1967 Soose Interzonal Kavalek had played 10 Rza4 against Bilek and had gone on to win; 10..Nxa4 was new. Being outplayed positionally Georgiev attempted to convert the game into a tactical melee with 14..e5!?; it didn't ultimately work but it was likely his best chance. After 15 Bg5 White was still on top; ie: 16..dxc?! 17 e5..d3 18 exf..Qd4+ 19 Be3..Bh6 20 f4..Bxf4 21 Rxf4..Qxa1+ 22 Bd1..Rfe8 23 Rf1 would have been strong for White. 25..Rc7 26 Be7!..Bh6 27 f4..Qg7 28 Nd8..Rxc1+ 29 Rxc1..Re7 30 Nxf7..Nb6 31 Nxh6+..Kf8 32 Qb4..Qxh6 33 Qxb6 would not have helped Black.
