Unfathomable. Masterpiece for ever..
yeah kasparov was an opening prep beast from what I've read. I haven't really done much of that. at all. because I just play some internet blitz and bullet from time to time and doing opening preparation for that is, well, absurd. and actually not really possible since 99 percent of the time you don't know who you are playing ahead of time as with standard time control tournaments.
if it weren't Kasparov and Beliavsky from a couple decades ago I'd definitely suspect engine use ! ! ! and that is so true about needing both players heads to be, say, "present" (ie both of them possessing certain basic fundamental information such as who what where why when) in order to have something real and legitimate (as otherwise it would just be bs). (additionally some positions are just like that---all moves played match the engines. all the moves are more or less forced/obvious and it's not surprising that players moves would match the engines. that is not the case with this standard time control tournament game played between Grandmaster Alexander Beliavsky and Grandmaster Gary Kasparov and it is really surprising that their moves matched houdinis. I know GM knows this but for other people who may not be aware)
my brain is masturbating,,,incredible! ...i resign if i were black
Qe8 wasn't a hard move to see it was the move I was thinking of during the commentary, although I didn't fully understand the move it felt right. This was a great game by my favourite player and childhood idol
Amazing game. Kasparov left his queen en prise half the game but it could never be taken.
arvind99 what in the world do you mean Qe8 should not be hard to find at the GM level?? You're 1700 how would you know. I'm a master and that move wouldn't even occur to me. Also Beliavsky at the time was one of the better players in the world and he didn't think of it. This is what really pisses me off about the "computer generation". They do this monday morning quarterbacking with a strong engine running in the background...what a joke. It's always easy to "see" a move after a strong GM has created a video about it, really annoying.
This was an incredible game! Great video again.
Dear GM Roman, I revere your passion for the game and loved your presentation. When I reflected on this game, I thought Bxg6 by White was an unsound sacrifice as Qe8 by Black should not be hard to find at the GM level! Also, White's own King is a tad vulnerable on the Queen side especially after the Nb4 move. Given this, I think Bxg6 by White is simply a bad and very risky move at the GM level. What Kasparov did was punish it totally with Qe8 and all the threats after that. Black had enough resources and that was that. Moral for me in your beautiful presentation is that "Do not make unsound sacrifices just to continue an attack". Especially at higher levels of chess, it will be punished as it is easier to find defending resources than come up with brilliant attacks that are foolproof! May be this why we see less romantic chess these days as GMs do not like playing dubious moves. Thanks for the valuable lesson, it was indeed great how Kasparov exposed his opponent totally!.
very good game!
Roman has shown this game more than once - Much as I enjoy being shown the same thing again and again for my feeble memory, Its time for him to bring some deeper analysis to the opening stages of it!
I enjoyed it as much as you :) Thanks for sharing!
great chess game. thx Roman
No dought Kasparov is familiar with a ton of mating pattens. Also, he's obviously tapped into the Sub Conscience mind for help and instruction on the game of chess.
Awesome game,...thanks for sharing!
An astonishing tactical mastrepiece. Reminds me of Alekhine at his best. As someone who played chess computers in the 1980's I can assure you as well that no chess computer at that time could produce any opening preparation beyond a joke level; this was certainly Kasparov's own preparation.
Move over FDR because Roman is the king of fireside chats! He draws you in with his charm and passion, then he takes you on an unforgettable journey like a sage bestowing wisdom directly to your third eye.
by GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
A world champion, outstanding opening preparation, machine-like calculation, and the beauty of leaving all of one's pieces en prise...Add it all up and what do you get? One of the most underrated games of all time. GM Dzindzichashvili still enjoys the beauty of this Kasparov gem, even after 25 years of playing through it many times. The best defense is indeed a good attack!

GM Roman Dzindzichashvili
GM Dzindzichashvili was once one of the top players in the world. Born in Georgia, his chess first developed in the USSR. While still an International Master, he defeated opponents like Botvinnik and Bronstein before emigrating, first to Israel where he became a Grandmaster, and then to the United States. His accomplishments in the U.S. include two U.S. Championship first places, and one World Open. He has not played actively in tournaments recently, but has become even more famous perhaps in the U.S. for quality instructional materials, in particular chess videos! Roman Dzindzichashvili now teaches chess classes and seminars for Chess.com University. Feel free to contact him for more information!
