Kasparov uses the whole board and knows when to exchange pieces to make an attack

Kasparov uses the whole board and knows when to exchange pieces to make an attack

This is a truly instructive game! Kasparov debates opening theory, successfully as usual. He works up a fierce kingside attack, augments it with queenside play, then uses a series of exchanges to render the enemy king indefensible. This was an important Olympiad game, and Kasparov rose to the occasion!

Update: it seems the database had an error and the knight went to h7, not d7, on move 22. This makes the conclusion of the game more logical. I'll try to correct the game score soon. Thanks for all the discussion in the comments.
