Video about Kasparov, being wrong ?

Post by xr_a_y » Wed Apr 01, 2020 7:02 pm

If I see the position correctly this is

[d] r3qbk1/1b4p1/p2pr2p/3n4/Pnp1N1N1/6RP/1B3PP1/1B1QR1K1 w

And Kasparov is saying here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMe-hvCwTRo) that Ng6+ is totally winning (like all lines lead to mate), which is not ... while Nef6 is more clearly winning material.

Was this observed before ? any comments ? Am i missing something ?

From the start of video it looks to me like the King is on H8, so from with this position and couple second analysis in engine I do get Nxh6 as best move.
