is this the best game ever ?
great game by kasparov,karpovs pieces are paralyzed, a great opening preparation from kasparov which he is known for
Awesome game! I love the idea: Give the grand fork, only to get a queen in return. Kasparov is good. But Karpov should have foseen this coming, as this was not the normal 1975 match, this was a world championship. He should have kept an escape route for his king. I also found quite interesting the last trap by Kasparov: giving up the queen when White would be a few moves from checkmate. By the way, anyone know the better of Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov?
Go Kasparov..! YOU'RE THE MAN..! What a brilliant finish!
"2 grandmasters , top of their game (world championship game) and kasparov takes his queen , (not a swap off , just takes it , and creates and inevitable mate !"Not exactly true, Karpov exchanged his Queen for two Knights and a Bishop. He got three pieces for his Queen, I think that's a fair trade."
he actually didnt , in the game he trades 2 knights (6points) for a queen (9points). his bishop sacrifice , came after in the game for a different purpose.
"39.Rxc1 Re1+ 40.Rxe1 Qxe1#"
its actually , 39.Rxc1 Re1+ 40.Rxe1 Qxe1 41.Bf8 Qxf8#
blackkn8telord , the worst pro game ever , please . you say a stupid move from the fork with the knight ????? dude , those guys are at GM level . i doubt youve even seen a GM , letalone played one or even come the slightest bit close to beating one. what you see as a stupid move , was probably a well thought out way to minimise damage done by the best chess player in the world at that time, Gary kasparov. and while your sitting here dissing the game , if you went up to karpov and told him what you think , he would probably laugh his head off at you......
excelente maniobra en el juego,
39.Rxc1 Re1+ 40.Rxe1 Qxe1#
moving the knight buys him a little bit more time
The best may be...but to say the best ever??????........ i dont think so...cuz the best is still to come.
pls. compare to immortal game of Bobby Fischers
A very good game- one of the best I´ve seen but not necessary the best.

yes hes not completely in mate , but it is inevetable , so Karpov resigned !
"It is a great game, I don't know about the best one ever. That would be like looking for the most beautiful woman, there is no such thing."
nice statement , very true , everyone is attracted to different things , same in chess games . i guess this just hits me . 2 grandmasters , top of their game (world championship game) and kasparov takes his queen , (not a swap off , just takes it , and creates and inevitable mate !
i see it as a BRILLIANT game .
