Default Could you have beat Kasparov in this position?

8/4k3/8/1P1b1p2/R4p1p/3B2nP/3N1bPK/8 w - - 0 60

Position above; game below. This game is cited, after White missed
the best continuation above, as an example of Kasparov's drawing
prowess. After knowing the best move wins nearly two pawns (but
without peaking further in Chessbase), I found the winning stem move,
but it was only knowing the move made in the actual game was not best--
so I can't say I would have done any better against Kasparov in this
position (even assuming, if I play like Tal, I could even get to this
position!).
