NICe Kasparov screwed up the opening, unless that was a new vary i do not know about. He also messed up in the midgame letting white's knight get to f5 and missing the fork. That definitly was not a GM performance. Props to Huzman.

Allright, I can figure out the notation, but couldn't you have used the notation that the majority of us are familiar with? (smacks of pretention)

anaxagoras ... cairo a)
This is a multinational site. What is wrong with someone using German algebraic notation. Maybe cairo just cut and pasted the game score. As long as people use characters that are recognizable they should be thanked for posting an interesting game score, not accused of being pretentious.
Thanks for posting a game that shows us that even great players like Kasparov make blunders just like the rest of us, even if a bit less often ;-)

It would be nice to know beforehand that it's German notation, as the rest of the post is in English.
bogg 52 ( +1 | -1 )
anaxagoras cairo is from Denmark so my guess was probably wrong. It is probably Danish algebraic notation. Those Germanic languages are all pretty similar looking, I have no idea if they sound similar or not. A lot of us old timers are used to getting our chess information from German and Russian sources. The modern flood of chess books in English started in about 1973. There were basically no opening books available to English readers before then, or at least I couldn't find them.

I do apologise for showing this game in Danish notation. I have just realise this now!!! And bogg I did just cut and paste from a Danish site, since I thought it was quite interesting, Kasparov loosing in 22 moves.
And to you anaxagoras, you could have choosen to ignore the thread and find for the game with the English notation for yourself. I guess you were to "lazy" for that and you rather would you use your time and recourses for complaining.
For that I will "punish" you, whenever we meet over the checked board. That means I will "crush your scull" Be aware!!!
In the mean time, here you have the game in English notation:

Pride cometh !! before a mighty fall !!! The newspapers were full of Kasparov's sensational rating, he had scored 4/4 and had recorded an incredible 3,400 rating for the Tournament.......and then came the mighty fall back to reality.

ChessBase posted the following straightforward analysis "the reason 20...Bc8?? was a terrible blunder in the position shown above (taken from the round five game Huzman-Kasparov) is that White can play 21.Rxd5! Black cannot recapture with the knight because of 22.Qxg7 mate, nor can he take with the queen because of the fork 22.Ne7+. White wins two pawns for nothing after 21...Qe8 22.Bxc4. Kasparov resigned. "

Thanks for posting the game Cairo.

Kind regards,

Ya thanks for stating the obvious calmrolfe. I don't really think the game readed to be put into english letters. If you couldn't figure it out, that's pretty sad. Kasparov obviously screwed up, but the good games that are played are always better to look at than the slaughters.

Thanks cairo for game and calmrolfe for followup reasons for the move. My game is not at the level of riga and I appreciate the analysis. Often I'll go over GM games and if the critical points are not pointed out I can not find the reasoning.

Still... ...Kasparov's performance, notwithstanding his loss, will increase his rating and put him even further ahead of the rest in the Elo tables!

Kasparov's Elo rating Does anyone know how high Kasparov's current Elo rating is?
