Late Castling: Part 1

So, it has been a whole week since I graduated from high school! It is still hard for me to believe that a whole four years have passed since I changed my occupation from "middle school student" to "high school student". I guess that I will have to change it again...

Anyway, I wanted to share this interesting game. We are often told, as chessplayers, to castle fairly early. However, there have been plenty of games, even at the grandmaster level, in which this rule was violated, to great success. Here is one of those games, in which the victim just happens to be the great Garry Kasparov.
