thank you for the analytical moves
I love these High-Level Entertainment videos!
@7:10 why not Qf7+ instead of Qxd6?
elindauer: It was Spassky, not Kasparov :P
Great video! It feels nice to know that GMs make mistakes too.
Miniature is not 23 moves its 25
It's nice to know that sometimes I play as well as (or as poorly as?) some of these super GMs. ;) thanks for the video!
very nice! Thanks!
chess is a humbling game ... for all players at all levels ... thanks so much for showing these games it was very very entertaining
Often, when highly ranked players get into trouble, one could look at the game and not knowing who was playing guess it was a novice. The Larsen-Spassky showed this as when Spassky's combination started, Larsen was under-developed and his King was in the center of the board. Also, the pawn moves to kick out the knight looked gross. Even GMs need to be wary of what us weaker players would call basic principles of Chess.
I suspect that when Kasparov played Rh1, Larsen knew he was lost even before he started to calculate it... An amazing game, thanks for sharing.
I always thought miniatures were 25 moves or less
That was fun to watch! :) I wil never feel bad again loosing lol
This makes me feel better, knowing that players many, many times better than me have the same thing happen to them that happens to me!
Good clean fun, crystal clear presentation; thanks!

Today you get to feel much better about your chess abilities! We have five games in which top players lost in fewer than a dozen moves. One World Champion lost in only six moves! We have another World Champion who was on the winning and losing side of two different chess novellas. We've also got a strong player getting physically mated before move 10. Even top players have a hiccup once or twice - let's enjoy before we get them a glass of water.
English Opening: King's English Variation, Four Knights Variation, Fianchetto Line (A29)
