Default Kasparov's immortal game

TaL has compiled about 100 (!) different annotations/analysis of the
famous game between Kasparov and Topalov in Wijk aan Zee 1999.

You can find the annotations at TaL's Chess Page http://tal.has.it

The annotations includes comments by several GM's, as Kasparov,
Ftacnik, Seirawan, Short, Kavalek, Byrne, Winants, Speelman, Stohl and
many others + some chess engines as Fritz and Rybka!

Many people don't believe this is Kasparov's immortal game. Though
Kasparov bragged about it some feel that his game as black against
Sunye Neto in a Tarrasch was it. However many say game 16 in his 2nd
world championship match against Karpov is his immortal game. That
was a sicilian defense.

As I understand it, there was a game dubbed
The Immortal Game because it was believed at
the time that the game was so great it would
be remembered forever. Now how this leads to
any given player -- or every player -- having one,
is beyond me. What's wrong with "Kasparov's
greatest game" or something like that? I mean,
there's probably no insurance policy on this and
if it gets stolen again and again, soon nobody
will remember that it actually referred to an old
game.

It'd be proper to say which Tal. Or were these annotations
compiled from beyond the grave?

(Is it why I had the association: immortal-immoral? :-)

Anyway, my minor misgivings aside, Kasparov
played so many wonderful games that it's very hard
to single one as THE immortal. Every chess player
will certainly enjoy Kasparov's miniature against
Ivanchuk, from 55th USSR championship, 1988
(or late 1987?). Just 24 moves but so beautiful.

Regards,

Wlod
