Ah, what a day it was for Thomson Chess Club. The arrival of the chess King with his old friend Zurab Azmaiparasvilli and others receiving him.

The crowd at Thomson CC listening to his every word 

As Kasparov gathered momentum by explaining how chess beauty cannot be created by oneself alone, he gave equal credit to his opponent GM Topalov for taking up the challenge by producing the diagram below:


Yes, that brilliant move Rd7! which refutes Topalov's notion that Black is winning ...in 1 move!

It was enough to entrall the audience of the greatness of chess beauty coupled with brilliant intuition on the part of the 13th World Champion, who confessed that he was acting on a hunch when he first sacrificed a rook, then two to reach the above position.
