    Here Kasparov was beaten by a player with same name as one of our most respected and strong players. Is it the same person ?

    And what's up with Kasparov's 12. Nf5 move... ? He got two pawns and for a piece but as far as I see black castle is still pretty much solid...

    it was a simul though, but it's still an impressive achievement. there aren't many people who have won kasparov, simul or not.

    tebb posted his analysis in some thread way back...

    Actually I'm a bit embarrassed by what I wrote about that game. Some of my comments were supposed to be funny - but they weren't

    Never annotate a game when you're drunk!

    Even more important not to play the game while drunk!

    what are you talking about, some of the best annotations have been written drunk.


    "With the black pieces I soon equalised, but my opponent played the middle game well, and as our pawn chains locked the centre efficiently, the a-file was my only hope. Luckily, Nigel Chapman offered me a pint as we passed the first time control, and that did the trick. With my opponent spending much time, and me with no risk of losing, I managed to "grind her down", winning a pawn and then another before 0-1 was a fact. Not an impressive start, but nonetheless a point and a pint."
