#agadmator Garry Kasparov:
If Topalov had not taken the Rook, the game could have finished in a draw: Veselin would have had half a point more, I - half a point less. He would have win a little bit, I would have lost a little bit, but chess and chess amateurs would have lost a lot. However, Caissa was kind to me that day.. . I do not know what I was rewarded for, but the development of events became forced after the capture on d4.

At first looks seriously disappointing seeing Topalov in trouble so early in the game, but then slowly he almost turned the tides. Sure there so much depth in that, that I cannot see, but so many of the moves look absurd to me .... probably explaining why I suck at chess :D

Am I missing something or couldn’t Kasparov have played rook to a7 or b6 threatening checkmate instead of taking the knight with the queen - this works even if back takes because all the pawns are protected

Once queen captures the knight in f6 am I the only one who sees rook d1 chek white is forced to play king b2 and then queen d4 check and also attacking the white queen so white has to exchange queens and black has 2 rooks for a bishop and a pone (plus one in the next move) but it is definitely play able game for both players

It is really strange that I saw an almost similar position between Anand and Kasparov (most probably played earlier) with color reversed a long time ago. Anand also played Rxd4 as white and Kasparov lost the game too. Vishy explained his computer found Rxd4 in his home preparation. Karpov was also playing in that tournament and shook his head after seeing the Rxd4! move.

At 8:24, wouldn't rook to d1 have been better than king takes pawn on A3? King has nowhere to go except b2, then you can go queen to d4 check and force a queen sacrifice?

7:50 Why not Topalov pawn to A5? Probably wouldn't accomplish much at that point, but perhaps it would buy some much needed tempo for Topalov to respond to Kasparov's attack 🤷‍♂️ I'm an 1100, so forgive me if this is a stupid mistake/proposition.

Kasparov had good reason to be doubtful. Topalov blundered with 31. Kxa3. The correct line of defense would have been: 31. .... Rd1+. 32. Kb2 Rh8. This saves the h8 rook from being captured later and defends mate on Qa6.

Can someone explain to me the difference between Pirc and King's Indian? Whenever I watch GM Daniel Naroditsky he always says Pirc is a poor defense, yet he says KI is a great defense... But to do a KI you first need to do a Pirc, especially if white opens with E5. If you didn't do D6 after E5 opening and instead moved your knight to F6, then white can just move pawn to E6 and your knight is busted. I have not been able to find any valid reason why Pirc is bad and KI is good even though they are basically the same thing, and to do KI you first need to do Pirc.. Help? :(

in the hypothetical check around 6 mins in he could have blocked w queen instead, forcing a trading of pieces in which he would come out with a two rooks, equal number of pawns, against bishop endgame
Franco Jose Muertes

at 6:00 the bishop on h3 would just pickup the queen, blocking with the knight/rook looses the queen as well and at 6:12 knight to c6 would be checkmate. He couldn't prevent it otherwise.

Very serious question : when Gary played Rxe4 until the very end this game, there were many mind boggling variations. Are you suggesting he saw them all in the 12 minutes you say he spent on the Rxe4 move? I'm a 2000 player, but I can't fathom a yes answer. Really. That's just too many variations. I'm hoping you tell me he "it looked very promising" and proceeded on faith and experience. Thanks.
