Good article on Chessbase:
Kasparov in Clichy
It might seem like overkill to some, but when one of the greatest players of all time (the greatest in some opinions) comes out to play a couple of games, especially against a top talent rated over 2700 it is news. Even if they were two blitz games. Add to that he won the first game, and was winning up to the last postion in the second, and one realizes that he wasn't just there for the show, he was out for blood.
Never count out the Beast from Baku.
