Here's what happens if white plays 24.Nb2:
Ahh, that's the line I was looking for! I played 8...Be7 and then d5!
How come every time I search a Karpov vs Kasparov game, EVERY single game that comes up is a Kasparov victory, on this site, on youtube, everywhere.... u would think that Kaprov never won a game against Kasparov but actually in their WC matches Karpov scored 19 victories with 21 losses and 104 draws. Whats with the anti-karpov bias?
Fantastic! Amazing strong moves, with a lot of winning tactics behind.
I really enjoyed this game!
Thanks for doing a series on Kasparov. It's hard to study a master's games when you are at lower level. The moves often don't make sense.
The Sicillian Defense and Kasparov are synonyms. There's not a lot of info on the subject on chess.com yet, until now.
The pace of the video is pretty fast, but hey, I have a rewind button right?
could you provide more annotation please
I didn't find it, thanks Sam! Quitting chess...
lovely series, i like the subject, the exposition is quite irritating though.
I noticed that The Big K was not settling for just good moves because he always seemed to find even stronger ones. Excellent video!
isnt it grandmaster sam shankland now?
yo sam.. im real happy fo yo ima letchu finish.... but bobby fishha had one of the best games of aaaalll tiiiiimmmee :O
now that is
an awesome game!
This game has also been analysed by GM Melikset Khachiyan's "Restriction 2; Karpov vs. Kasparov" if anyone wants to see some more sweet analysis of this game.
by GM Sam Shankland
After their first "never-ending-draw-match" was finally postponed, Kasparov started taking Karpov to "Ouch-Town" right off the bat in their rematch. You are about to witness a masterpiece that showcases Kasparov's power with the initiative, as well as his maturity and prophylactic foresight. Karpov's pieces, beginning with his knights on a4 and b1, were strangled in such a fashion that even Karpov himself, if he hadn't been on the receiving end, would be proud!
