Garry Kasparov’s Immortal Game

#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.

  1. bro a dog just watched me throughout the game

  2. Best video game I’ve ever played on a computer?
    Chess With Friends, by Zinga !

  3. Topalov mistake when he takes the rook at e4.Instead of Kb6

  4. Why would Topalov play Q×D5 instead of K×D5?

  5. I don't believe that Kasparov had calculated all the way to the "capturing" of the Rook! Sorry Mac.

  6. instead of f4 in the endgame, Kasparov could have played Qe4! check, and captured the black rook next move!

  7. Fuck! When you realize how lowly you are compared to the Champ, Kasparov, Carlsen and Other GMs.

  8. Garry is the real OG. Although Ivanchuk CRUSHED him in Linares '91, Garry's games are educational and work of art!

    Rxd4 would not even be in my candidate moves to evaluate. Pure genius!

  9. Only Kasparov can crush top Grandmasters like that.

  10. To je zaista najbolja partija najboljeg šahiste svih vremena. Razbio je mnoge strogo preporučene zakone tokova partija. Nikada pre nisam video udvostručene i utrostručene pešake koji su donosili pobede. On je jednostvno GENIJE ŠAHA.

  11. I ran this through an engine and Topalov still had the draw for a while. This is the best game of chess ever played.

  12. The most brilliant attack I have ever seen. Astounding

  13. Arent you the wine seller who tried to poison daenerys? :p

  14. i like Garry's humour , his books are actually quite funny at times.

  15. Topalov missed an opportunity to equalize at @08:25. He should have played Rd1+

  16. Black won't win. You did an illegal movement. With pawn 5.

  17. kasparov didnt see 37 Rxd7, i dont belive him, what he so is that line, that you dont analize on your vido, realy importent. 24Rd4 cd 25 Re7+Kb8 26 Qd4 Nd7!? ,covering b6 square, playing around d7 leave rock h8 hanged. so he saw better posision, thats it. Better vidio next time, thanks

  18. This isn't calculation of all lines…it's just use golden rules of collecting all pieces to king side and defending side have no that much defence in king side

  19. there is no list, if there was you'd have to put gary in the top 5. at least top 7

  20. I honestly believe that Kasparov was the best that ever played! All his years at the top is a huge indicator

  21. I actually read the title as"Gary Kasparov's immoral game"😂

  22. Very beautiful game, also Hikaru like this game as the best game

  23. Garry, how many moves ahead can you calculate?

    Kasparov: All of them

  24. 6:14 Why not block with the queen, instead of the bishop? Doesn't that solve the checkmate problem, and the knight fork?

    – Sincerely yours, a 900 Elo.

  25. ANTONIO – HOW ABOUT A KASPAROV SAGA? I couldn’t think of someone more deserving.

  26. I my honest opinion, I believe Topalov should have not castled

  27. Looks like the rook passive on h8 was crucial. It is mindblowing how deep Kasparov can analyse the options on the spot.

  28. 0:58 The dog was, oh man, not again with the Kasparov games! I'm outta here!!! 🤣

  29. Me VS Kasparov pawn ♟ to E4 let the Game Commence winner buys the first 🍺 pint and Pork Pie 🥧

  30. Last night I sacrificed a knight to a pawn for the first time in my life purposfully, and it did me great development of the situation, really. Too bad I then lost my Queen like a rookie and lost the game =)
