    Yeah, but it was a simul.

    Yeah, it just doesn't compare with your many victories over World Champions.

    Yeah, if I had a penny for every time I'd beaten Kasparov in a simul...

    Yeah the 13th WC would be pretty easy to catch out with on the white side of a KID too... The b3 move by Gazza is actually the loser I think however the knight sacrifice is dubious.

    Tebb posted his own analysis/thoughts on the game in this forum over a year ago. I suppose somebody with some spare time could dig it up.

    Kasparov - David Tebb (annotations by the latter)

    1.c4 I was going to try the Marshall Attack against e4, and the Benko Gambit against d4. No way was I going to defend! I forgot about the English
    1...Nf6 I still hoped he'd change his mind and play d4
    2.Nc3 g6 I realised I wasn't going to get a Benko
    3.e4 And that rules out the Gruenfeld
    3...d6 4.d4 Bg7 So we now have a King's Indian Defence, in which Kasparov is recognised as the World's leading expert. Great!
    5.Be2 0-0 6.Nf3 Nbd7 I decided to avoid the fiendishly complicated main line which starts with ..Nc6. Maybe next time, Gary!
    7.0-0 e5 8.Qc2 c6 9.Rd1 exd4 10.Nxd4 Re8 I'm playing all the moves black uses to combat the fianchetto system. What do you mean, white hasn't fianchettoed? He might do later! Haven't you heard of prophylactics?
    11.Bf4 Qe7 12.Nf5? Aagghh... Where did that come from?
    12...gxf5 13.Bxd6 Qd8 14.exf5 Ok the dust has settled. Let's evaluate the position. White has 2 pawns for the piece, an initiative, the possibility of a kingside attack. Black is cramped and underdeveloped. Not enough my friend!
    14...Qb6 I had to get out of that pin
    15.b4 He doesn't want to let me breathe
    15...a5 Otherwise black will suffocate
    16.Rab1 Qa7 Ok, it may look like black is grovelling...
    17.b5 a4 but at least white's attacking on the queenside and not trying for mate
    18.Bf3 Why didn't he try g4 at some point?
    18...Ne5! Kasparov looked shocked by this strong move. I'm allowing him to get a rook to the back rank with check, but I'd seen it wasn't dangerous!
    19.Bxe5 Rxe5 20.Rd8+ He probably thought he was winning
    20...Ne8! Much better than the alternatives
    21.bxc6 bxc6 22.Bxc6 Bxf5! This was the move I'd pinned my hope on. It wins.
    23.Rxa8 Qxa8? My only slip. I had an easier win with ..Bxc2
    24.Qxf5 Qxc6 25.Qd3 Qe6 A grandmaster criticised me for not trying to swap the queens off with ...Qg6. But I was having too much fun to do anything like that
    26.Kf1 a3 27.Nd5 Re4 Now I'm ready to cut his rook off with ..Bb2
    28.Qxa3 So he thought he'd better take the pawn
    28...Rxc4 29.Ne7+ Kh8 30.Rb8 You can never relax against this guy
    30...Qd7 31.g3 Re4 With a double threat of winning another piece and mate! He stared at the position, pulled a few faces, grunted, and held out his hand in resignation 0-1

    What exactly is a simul anyways? I'm assuming you don't mean simulation game right? it really was Kasparav and Tebb playing right?

    One player playing against several opponents simultaneously.

    So, which other world champions had the honour to player Mr. Tebb in that simul?
