Ok, I'm looking at his game to try to improve my own. I'm "mediocre" at best, but I enjoy a good game of chess.
At the end of the 9th move by both players, Kasparov has his queen on Qh6.
Now, I'm what would be called a "beginning" chess player, in that I like the game, but I'm not that good at it, even though I have been playing (though not professionally or really competitively) for years.
But my question is as follows: For Kasparov's 10th move, he moves a3. What would have been the ramifications of him making the move Qg7? It seems to me like that would set up a good capturing opportunity, or at least cause Topalov to move the rook to a different protective position, like Rf8.
[FEN "r2qk2r/pb1npp1p/2pp1npQ/1p6/3PP3/2N2P2/PPP1N1PP/R3KB1R w - - 0 1"]
Hey, he's the grandmaster and I'm not, I'm just wondering what might have happened had he made that move instead of a3. Mainly, how the game might have unfolded, and what Topolov's counter may have been.
