Okay, this is the one I meant to post for part two. It demonstrates how deadly White's kingside attack can be. Anand had absolutely no counterplay and could only wait to get crushed.
18. f5 , Damage is done...
Since 7th move is crucial... Kasparov took positional advantage that Anand couldn't dispute... That could be called... the beginning of the end...
"28--rh4 how does black escape??"
As long as the queen stays on the c8-h3 diagonal, Qxh7 can be met by Nxh7 Rxh7 Qxh3.
28--rh4 how does black escape??
if the rook captures the bishop black would be checkmated by the white knight
Why is the bishop immune to capture?
I know. Qxd4 is a noteworthy sideline, but not as good as Nxd4. Black can play a6 and then gain time with Nc6. Black would be equal, although there are chances for both sides
I would have to strongly disagree about one of your comments about the game. I would put it forward that 4.Qxd4 loses no time and actually gives white a centralized queen with no threat from 4...Nc6. I have studied the system in depth and have played the system with astonishing results OTB. I am willing to back this stance with two games where you are black and im white. If you are up for the challenge say so here and ill send you the games with 3 day time controls. Nice article but I think that the comment about Qxd4 is unwarranted and unfounded and I'm willing to prove the point that I am making.
Best of luck in whatever you choose to do.
Great work by K.
Wouldn't knight to g5 be a good defense to the mate that was coming?
i hate watching kasparovs game... i got no chance to understand his ideas
i wouldn´t retreat the rook to E3 instead to h4 maintaning the preasure on the H file and potentially swinging the f1 rook to f3 and then h3 in order to double the rooks nice notes though.
quite a crush!
When was this game played?
I didnt know that at move 40 you get extra time AWSOME!!
Time control means that you get an extra hour once you reach move 40. Because both were in time pressure, they likely decided to repeat moves to get closer to the 40th move
move 23 and 24.... Kasparov and Anand repeat moves to get closer to time control. What does that mean?
