Kasparov vs. Karpov 1988-2009 – Tactics

Here are some more positions to add to my book review of Kasparov vs. Karpov 1988-2009.

Kasparov – Karpov, 1990, game 20
image  White to move. The concentration of White pieces on the kingside leads to a mating attack.

Karpov - Kasparov, 1990, game 11
image Black to move. Black is down the exchange, and the knight is attacked, so retreat is not an option. How can Black force a draw?

Kasparov – Karpov, Valencia 2009, rapid game 3
image White to move. The last brilliancy we see from Garry Kasparov?
