Graphical analysis after Kasparov's 24 Qxg6 
in support of main PGN download file

The World should play the centralising Qe4 now. 

(for example if instead Qc2, 24...Qc2 25.Re1 Bd4 26.Qe6+ Kc7 27.Kh1 Qxf2 28.Rc1 Kd8 29.Qxd6+ Ke8 30.Qe6 winning for White)

The Queen not only protects our f5 pawn but also is in a good central square hitting out in all directions.

Kasparov has a few main options which we should consider:-

1) Bd2!! (Peter Spiriev) All analysis is by Peter Spiriev, a poster to the Barnet chess club guestbook

1) Bd2 (Peter Spiriev)

From the Barnet on-line guestbook:-


The variation 25...Ne5!? 26.Qg8!!N 

(Spiriev Peters original winning move for White) I gave this move in an old original analysis of mine which You can find already on the 11th or at 12th. page on this site. Much better than the previously analysed one. The main idea is to control the 8th rank, to defend the g2 point against Blacks counterattack and to control the a2-g8 diagonal. I am sad to see that in FAQ they do not see such a simple but very strong moves like this.


[26...Nd3 is simply bad because of 27.Be3! and White wins 27.Be3!] 



The idea of this move to take away the d3 square from the Blacks knight. 


[ After 27...Bxf2+ 28.Kxf2 Nd3+ 29.Kf1 Nxe1 30.Bxe1 Qd3+ 31.Kg1 b5 32.Qa8 (32.h4 b4 33.Qa8 also deserves consideration for White.; 32.Qg5) 32...Qe3+ 33.Bf2 Qc1+ 34.Kh2 Qf4+ 35.Bg3 Qe4 a1) 36.Qa5 

is not so clear.

36...b4 37.Qb5+ Ke6 38.Qe8 Kf6 39.h4 b3? (39...Kg7 40.h5) 40.Qf8+ Kg6 41.Qg8+ Kh6 42.Qxb3 and White wins here too.

; b1) 36.Qg8!! 

36...b4 37.h4 Qc2 38.h5 b3 39.h6 b2 40.h7 b1Q 


is a rare and fantastical defender move I think - I am happy to found this but altogether even after this fantastical move White wins. - 41.Qa2! Qg7 42.Qa4+! Ke6 only move 43.Qb3+! d5 only move 44.Kg1!! 

And White wins. I think this is a beautiful line and I am happy that I could find it (All original analysis by Mr. Spiriev Peter Alain) 44...Kf7 45.Qxd5+ Kg6 46.Qg8!! b1Q+ 

FANTASTICAL POSITION ! - but I am sorry to tell that White will win in every line 47.Kh2 Qe4 48.h8Q!! 

AGAIN FOUR QUEEN ON THE BOARD.!! Incredible nice position. I was delighted to analyse such positions. (And I am happy that all these variation are my original analyses No one can take them from me 41.h8Q And Black can resign. Now there are four Queen on the board and that was I mean for example when I mentioned that there are some picture like positions but Black will lose. Now the pawn race was won by Black but Black can resign immediately after he "won that pawn race - Life can be tuff sometimes 


4 queens position!!

42.Qe8+ Kb6 43.Qxe7!! 

Picture like position but White wins easily here in every line 43...Qc6 44.Qd4+! Ka6 45.Qe2+ Qbb5 46.Qa4+ Kb6 47.Bf2+ 

and Black must resign White wins the Queen (analysis by Mr.Spiriev Peter Alain)] 

But now Back to the analysis after 27...Qd3 


Qc2 29.Rf1 Nd3 30.Be3! Bxe3 31.fxe3 Qc5 32.Kh2! 

Qe5+ 33.Qg3 [33.Kh1 is also good for White 33...Qxe3 34.Rxf5 Qe1+ 35.Kh2 Qe4 36.Qg5 is also better wins for White but in this position there are many many ways for White to win clearly and without effort. (Spiriev)] 33...Qxg3+ 

[33...e6 34.h4! b5 (34...Qxg3+ 35.Kxg3 transposing back to "main line" after 33...Qxg3) 35.Rb1! b4 36.Qxe5! dxe5 (36...Nxe5 37.Rxb4 and Black must resign. (Spiriev)) 37.g4! Ke7 (37...fxg4 38.Kg3 e4 39.h5 Ke7 40.Rf1! and Black must resign (Spiriev)) 38.g5 Kf8 39.h5 Kg7 40.g6! and Black must resign 40...e4 41.Rg1!+- Ne5 42.h6+ Kxh6 43.g7 Nf3+ 44.Kh1 Nxg1 45.g8Q Nf3 46.Qxe6+ Kg5 47.Qe7+ Kg4 48.Qxb4 and Black lost everything (analysis of Spiriev Peter Alain)] 

34.Kxg3 e6 35.h4 Nb4 36.h5 Nd5 37.h6 Nf6 38.Kh4 

And Black must resign. 

b. variation 

26.Be3 Ne5 27.Qg8!!N 

this is (Another Spiriev original ) is much better than than 27.Qh7 which was mentioned before this analysis of mine . (weaker but not bad either is 27.Qh7 b5 28.Bg5 Nc6 29.h4! (New - Spiriev - by the way is also better for White)) After 27.Qg8!! 

27...b5 (27...Nc4 28.Bg5 Qe4 29.Rd1 and Black has no chance at all. White easily wins. (Spiriev)) 28.Bb6! 

and White wins very easily (Spiriev)] All original (100%) analysis by Mr. Spiriev Peter Alain, Hungary Budapest.
