    But Garik fights back in a fine game against Shirov! I'm sure he was motivated for a whole bunch of reasons.

    Nice rook-trap at the end, just when it seemed like he might run out of pawns. Rook-traps are one of my favourite themes, I win a lot of games with them. Interesting game.

    I do with Alexei would get his act together and beat Gazza , even if only one time. What is it now, 35 games?

    it is something like Kevin claims, i remember reading from linares that Shirov has never beaten Kaspa and has a woeful record too.

    It's about 50% Kasparov wins and 50% Kasparov draws from about that many games.

    Kasparov will be much better prepared in a match situation, and likely in better form as well. I can't really see Kasimdzhanov making a dent.

    Still, there are some cracks in the armor showing up over the last couple of years. Maybe he's just not playing enough any more?
