In one of the critical games in this match, Kasparov repeats a daring gambit idea, knowing that Karpov's team has had over a week to prepare for it. The risk pays off, and his "octopus" knight on d3 prevents Karpov's pieces from getting into play. The result is a total bind, which Kasparov finishes off the masterpieces with a burst of tactics.

    I found this game very interesting, but while the annotations were helpful, it was very distracting that almost every one of Kasparov's moves was given ! or !!.

    gary just dosent miss much wow, I wonder how much fun it must be to prepare

    for garry... it's like in football, the nfl, calling the play to the other team,

    saying we are going to go up the middle, and smashmouth it off the tackle...

    and you do it, and score a touch down... wow, to  fear black what a mind...

    he must have been one of the most organized ever! that is power to put someone on their back, prepared in black... wow... guess you can do that when you are 2800... wow... it's clear he saw 10 moves to 15 moves ahead here because once he saw the file to the king locked down... that little amount of sunlight was all he needed... wow, did he miss a step?  ok if I didn't say it

    before wow... ok bye all remember to have a nice game of chess over some coffee or tea and enjoy the day...

    This game was annotated well in Seirawan's book, Winning Chess Brilliancies. He referred to it as "the "Moscow Miracle". I have used it in lessons, and it has always been well received.

    Kasparov at his finest. His positional play was brilliant. And the tactics that he performed from the well-earned position were just as good.
