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?

Judit had quite a run before she beat him too, didn't she?

But I had no idea the + / - was so big.

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.

kaspa held to draw by Azarov Sergei 2556 ranked 257 in world,he beat shirov but he always does that might be hes only win here.

Kasim might have a real chance ?

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?
