Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-10  SharpAttack: Very Nice play by Anand..Does not allow Karpov to relax at all..!
Mar-26-12  nr77man: what a good game by anand....masterclass
Jan-11-13  Abdooss: After the game, Karpov commented, "After 9...d5, it's equal, but I misplayed." Anand's response upon hearing that, "I would love to have a match against Karpov with all games starting after 9..d5!" Anand must be very positive that the position after 9..d5 favours White a lot!" The result shows!
Or as Ljubojevic once said, "Karpov knows a lot about chess, but not enough about Sicilian!"
Jan-11-13  voyager39: That was long ago...when Chess wasn't adulterated by Computers and databases.

  Dionysius1: Yes, <voyager39>. Here's to those days. It's how I justify not playing any more and just revelling in chess history up to about mid 1980s
Dec-25-17  birthtimes: Karpov in his career playing the Taimanov as Black won 13 games, drew 17 games, and lost only twice. This was his first loss in the Taimanov. Ljubojevic needs to revise his statement.
