This is a game from 1999 between Garry Kimovich Kasparov and Veselin Topalov from the 61st Hoogovens Chess Festival Tournament held in Wijk aan Zee, Netherlands. This attacking masterpiece is filled with one brilliant move right after the other by Kasparov, moves that would soon have several defining it as the best chess game ever played, and the world recognizing it as "Kasparov's Immortal". Kasparov was rewarded with the brilliancy prize for what is arguably the finest attacking game of his career.
Opening: Pirc Defense
k_Mate: (a bit late, but still^^)
With your move, there is a forced check mate:
25. ... Qxe7 26. Qxd4+ Kb8 27. Qb6+ Qb7 28. Nc6 1-0
after viewing this many times i still come back to what he called the second of 5 great moves. I feel like I am missing something. on move 25 why doesn't black simply take rook with the queen.. the move is re7. he would put threat of check with aim at knight. I listened very close and could not hear him explain why queen could not take the rook. Hmm.
can some one help me under stand ?
i think topalov survive this game by playing 31. Rd1+ followed by Qd4+. and maybe win the game it is not immortal game. topalov only miss the opportunity
