Famous Chess Game: Kasparov vs Topalov 1999 (Kasparov’s Immortal)

In what is arguably the greatest chess match ever played, Kasparov shows why he is considered to be the best chess player of all time in his “Immortal” game. There are so many amazing moves I lost count. Hopefully you learn as much from the game as I did studying it.

  1. I'm a noob, so forgive me if the answer is obvious… But, at 23:41, why did Topalov take the bishop with his pawn, instead of moving his rook to safety? Surely two rooks vs a queen and a bishop is better than one rook vs a queen? I'm obviously not suggesting that I know better, I'm just trying to learn.

  2. 23:43 why Topalov hasn't moved the rook to b8 instead of eating the bishop with his pawn?!?

  3. Sound is horible. Why dont u clean it up and reupload!?!?

  4. Very good job at teaching this game. Thank you Sir.

  5. "but then topalov realised that he is playing kasparov and kasparov has a Queen, he resigned" 🤣🤣

  6. Wow! Great moves.. but it’s a battle for two great players of this level..

  7. I'm new to chess and I'm still struggling with all the rules so…. at 16:04, why doesn't white move the Queen to c7? Technically, the King would have no place to go because he can't move back to b7 or b8 because the Queen would capture him. Wouldn't that be checkmate because he's boxed in? Argggg, this is hopeless!!!

  8. can you keep your talking to the minimal? why the hell do you have to talk so much?

  9. What are black rook doing?? I can't called it an immortal game

  10. I am a better chess player, and human being, since watching this game…

  11. Time stamp: 20 min 56 sec, when Kasparov captured knight on f6, Topalov could have pushed Rd1 giving check and only move for white king is b2, after which black queen to b3 would have given victory to Topalov..

  12. wow there's so many adult here 😤

    all the comments are from 7-8 years ago

  13. Wow, what an exciting game. Thank you for this great commentary. It is simply epic.

  14. stupid game.. he should have used his queen to eat the rook… it was over at – 6 min mark

  15. Amazing game. Great commentary. Thank for the video!

  16. Why the fck are u talking this much

  17. Kasparov once tried running for president of russia and I am sure he would do much better than pootin

  18. 20:15 if I were black I would use my queen to threaten white queen, move it to d2 for example

  19. 9:54 why didn’t black move his queen to F8? It would prevent the queen aggression from white

  20. Lol, he works for a big company, but spends all his time traveling. .

  21. Black wins if bishop take d5 instead of queen taking d5

  22. Who's here at 2022. Ey thanks so much I learnt aloot from here

  23. I can't understand chess
    i can understand AK4 . That's my weapon long times ago.

  24. But chess computers today are strong!

  25. Thanks for having this channel. I don't play many chess matches, as there are not many people around me that knows how to play. Only one person from my work that likes to "talk trash". I would say he's a beginner. He hasn't beatin me yet. I usually play against a computer.

  26. I haven't the slightest clue of wtf this man is talking about but I'm enjoying it.

  27. I don’t see why Topolov needed to resign in the last position. I can think of a couple scenarios in which he could’ve promoted his pawn and gotten at least a draw
