Aug todicav23 : Kasparov is just a bad looser. He always tries to find excuses. In this match he was not prepared and he was also in a bad mood. It is true that later Kasparov was able to crack the Berlin defense beating Kramnik. All their matches were close and Karpov was really unlucky in Karpov was 12 years older and it was clear that his main weakness was long matches. I lived in a former communist country and every time when I hear Kasparov talking I remember about that. His character is really unpleasant.

Apr Messiah : What a legendary match! It is so weird that both of them already stopped participating in super-GM events. It was in fact Kasparov who ducked the rematch for reasons that are well known. Kasparov asked to bypass that qualification step based on the strength of his recent results, but the event was played, Kasparov refused his invitation, and Leko won and played in Kramnik - Leko Classical World Championship Match As part of the Prague agreement for title reunification, there was a plan for Kasparov - Ponomariov World Championship Match but Ponomariov did not accept.

The organizers tried to substitute Kasimdzhanov, but failed to raise funds for the match. At the beginning of the year , he called and asked me to speak at an event at the Saint Petersburg University of the Humanities. I had no special reason to want to go there, but I could not deny Taimanov! It was there that I met a student named Dasha Tarasova, who later became my wife.

He left quickly after the game. In many matches, things going on off the board affected some games, not just in Iceland Perhaps Kasparov will write of such things in a future book, covering all of his matches.

Conclusion: By putting all above together we can understand with a high percentage of assurance that what was the issue with Kasparov at this match, or at least one of his main issues. But it shows that Kasparov was not himself and was not playing at his real level of concentration and ability due to above distraction. I was aware of Kasparov avoiding the qualification process due to hia ego, but never thought all these years that he was ducking Kramnik.

I thought that he would have won the rematch and am sad that it never happened. Kasparov clearly was not his usual level during the match, but Kramnik took full advantage of this with excellent play.
