    @JohnSutCliffe- If you think Kasparov's combinations had nothing to do with positional chess, you're mistaken.  BECAUSE Kasparov places his pieces correctly, it gives him possibilities such as this game.  Also, because he is one of the greatest ever calcultors, he can find deep, powerful, forcing lines.  Even if you disagree with that, I think you miss the point of a player's "immortal game".  This game fits Kasparov's style- constant striving for the initiative, powerful sacrifices, forcing combinational lines, and a tactical psychological beating.  It's a game that showcases his legacy in his own style.  To say a game where he played differently from his most recognized style is his immortal doesn't make sense to me.  It would be similar to saying Karpov's immortal was a game with a 12-move combination that forced mate.  Not really what Karpov's known for...  Anyway, just my opinion.

    I admit the combinations are amazing, but I still don't agree this is Kasparov's immortal because I think sacrifices with forcing continuations deserve less admiration than positional sacrifices. Of course forcing continuations might be hard to calculate but as long as you're a good enough calculator you see it and you go for it. A positional sacrifice requires logic,ability to evaluate, creativity and courage. To me Kasparov's immortal is the game where he sacrifices a pawn to get an octopus knight against Karpov.

    This one never gets old.  Kasparov may well be the greatest ever.

    you made the title "the conquering king" but the title was supposed to be "Kasparov's immortal game".
