Garry Kasparov's Best Games
The best games of Kasparov's career.In the hands of this young man lies the future of chess.
– Mikhail Botvinnik 
(on Kasparov in the late Seventies)It was the beauty and brilliance of tactical blows that captivated me inearly childhood. – 
Garry Kasparov 
 My chess philosophy has largely been developed under the influence of Ex-World Champion Mikhail Moiseevich Botvinnik. I am sure that thefive years I spent at Botvinnik's school (1973-1978) played a decisiverole in my formation as a chess player and determined the path of my subsequent improvement. – 
Garry Kasparov 
 I singled out for me a group of chess players from whom I wanted toborrow the best qualities: the psychological stability from Karpov, themeticulous positional technique from Petrosian, the logic fromBotvinnik, the intuition from Alekhine, the ability of taking a risk fromTal. – Garry Kasparov

 Alexander Alekhine is the first luminary among the others who are stillhaving the greatest influence on me. I like his universality, his approachto the game, his chess ideas. I am sure that the future belongs to"Alekhine" chess. – 
Garry Kasparov 
 I try to play, always, beautiful games
...
always I wanted to createmasterpieces. – 
Garry Kasparov 
I want to win, I want to beat everyone, but I want to do it in style! – 
Garry Kasparov 
 Chess for me is art. – 
Garry Kasparov 
 Chess is mental torture. -
Garry Kasparov 
 My play is based on the most general laws of chess and the particular features of the position. – 
Garry Kasparov 
 The point about concentration is that it is the only way to findsomething new and unusual at the chessboard; the only way to createsurprise with fresh ideas. – 
Garry Kasparov 
  We like to think. – 
Gary Kasparov 
(on why he and Karpov get intotime trouble so often)In conclusion, if you want to unravel the multitude of secrets of chessthen don't begrudge the time. -
Garry Kasparov 
 My nature is that I have to excite myself with a big challenge. -
Garry  Kasparov 
Kasparov feels Indian positions with his fingertips, but did not riskplaying the KID against Karpov until their 4th match. And when Garry did not lose, he confirmed his absolute dominance over Karpov. Itbecame clear that Karpov's attempts to regain the title would never succeed. -
 Alexsander Shashin 
 To make a rather primitive classification, the average grandmaster knows about 1,500 - 2,000 typical positions, including the opening,possible middlegame plans, and some outlines of endgame. Super GMs,like Kramnik or Anand, have a wider and deeper knowledge. As for Kasparov, his knowledge is truly head-spinning, I guess, his number of positions might exceed 10,000. Garry's memory is phenomenal! I thinkit even impedes him during the game. -

Potentially, Garry is an outstanding tactician who thinks originally andhas a fine, sharp sense for dynamic positions. The trainers who worked with him concentrated on another of his assets, the most obvious onebeing his unique memory. This natural gift and his strong character,multiplied by his tremendous working ability, along with his ability toaccumulate and retain information, produced the world champion;perhaps the greatest chess player of all time. Nevertheless, I believe thatGarry did not realize his true chess potential to the maximum. Greatknowledge is a great burden. Young Kasparov was incredibly inventive,even in difficult positions. He knew how to transform them, to explodethe situation on the board in his favor, and he collected points from thestrongest opponents, who could not cope with such complications.Garry's chess talent had a lot in common with Tal's. Later these traits were greatly developed. Garry has been the world's strongest player for 20 years and still he is not fully satisfied. Due to the constant pressureon him, Garry can't play a single game for his own pleasure. Those who've seen friendly games by Kasparov, when he plays in a relaxedmanner without worrying about the outcome, will never forget it: whatspectacular chess! -
 Valeri Tsaturian 
  An aggressively inscrutable player, Kasparov strives to gain deeppositional sacrifices: Even when he can't calculate the end resultconclusively, he can make sophisticated generalizations. He doesanything to get the initiative and to force the play. Inevitably, heemerges from a forest of complications - in which his intentions aren'tall that clear - with the advantage. He's not as artful or as clear asFischer, but his play coincides with the realities of the day, which are allabout defense. Clarity of style no longer makes sense. Great playershide their intentions. – 
Bruce Pandolfin
 Kasparov always seems to find some sparks to create a fire on theboard. – 
Lubomir Kavalek 
 Typical Kasparov. Instead of simplifying to stagnant equality, he seekscounter chances on the kingside. Forever confident. That's why he's thebest in the world! – 
 Yasser Seirawan 
(commenting on a Kasparovgame) When your house is on fire, you can
t be bothered with the neighbors.Or, as we say in Chess, if your King is under attack you don
t worry about losing a Pawn on the Queen's side. -
Gary Kasparov
