Kasparov's 'immortal game'
The game features an incredible rook sacrifice (24 Rxd4) that Topalov 'should' have turned down, but once the sacrifice was accepted, Kasparov was able to launch a king hunt that hinged on a breathless cascade of sacrificial checkmating ideas.
- Defending dubious openings can be a risky proposition.
- The defender's task is usually harder.
- You should be optimistic when you can separate your opponent's king from his forces.
