|Apr-23-09|| ||DoctorC: Yes.
43.Qd3 followed by 44.Nc3 seems better. 44. ..b4 can be met by Nb5. Immediate 43.Nc3 invites ..Qc8 0r ..b4
43.Qd3 b4 takes away b4 square for the bishop
Q on d3 prevents ba6. Thus helping the rook to stay on e2. If qd7-qh3 in played after ng5 then Re2-h2 is required for defense.
Eyal: <I think 43. Nc1 was a poor move. Why not 43. Nc3 instead? The e4 need so badly protection.>

|Apr-23-09|| ||Dr. J: Does anyone know what might have happened after 28 Qxe3, maintaining the guard on the h-pawn?|
Would 44 Nd3 have been better?
|Apr-23-09|| ||SirChrislov: Ulf Andersson has a reputation of being extremely hard to beat. everyone who talks about him,coleages,GM's, have said that.|
|Apr-23-09|| ||Eyal: 44.Nd3 just loses to 44...Nf3+. After 28.Qxe3 Black could win back the exchange with 28...Bf4 29.Qd4 Bxc1 30.Rxc1, but it was probably a safer alternative for White, who looks ok after e.g. 30...b5 (otherwise Bc4) 31.Ng3 Nb6 32.Nf5! Nbxd5 33.Nxd5 Bxd5 34.Nxh6+ gxh6 35.Qxf6.|
|Aug-23-09|| ||gezafan: An epic game!|
|Aug-20-10|| ||Everett: Surprised Karpov lasted that long. Black has terrific dark-squared control for the exchange.|
This is just one of many ways and exchange sac can work: make the piece taken be a bishop that the sacrificer still has.
|Oct-16-10|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Incredible game - Karpov defended heroically for some time. |
I remember the 1970's, I turned 12 in 1970 ...
IF I rememebr correctly; Anderson used to be firmly in the top 10-15 players in the world.
|Oct-16-10|| ||LIFE Master AJ: In fact - according to this list - Andersson was # 3!!!! |
|Feb-02-11|| ||talisman: <AJ> 1970...the year Earl won it and our main man Pal Benko said to Bobby..."take my place man you gotta do it."|
|Aug-24-11|| ||newzild: <Pal Benko said to Bobby..."take my place man you gotta do it.">|
I've always resented Benko for that. It gave Bobby the chance to stop playing chess at his peak.
|Nov-03-13|| ||SpaceRunner: "Dr. J: Does anyone know what might have happened after 28 Qxe3, maintaining the guard on the h-pawn?"|
probably a draw according to Andersson.
Black regaining a pawn ,,b5 and Nb6
But Karpov tried to use Anderssons lack of time!

In Grandmaster Chess Strategy by Kaufeld & Kern (a book on Andersson's games categorized by positional motif) they give 2. ...Rxe3!? 28. Ne3! and in notes: "The best reply; 28. Qxe3, Bf4; 29. Qd4, Bxc1; 30. Rxc1, b5; 31, Rd1, Nb6;32. Ne3, Nbxd5; 33. Ncxd5, Bxd5; 34. Nf5, Re8=."
|Feb-26-14|| ||Sharpov: Great Game.|
|Feb-26-14|| ||offramp: Karpov's only loss in 1975.|
|Feb-26-14|| ||Everett: Just realized the similarity between Game 15 1985 Karpov-Kasparov and this game, in that both of Karpov's opponents played around a passed d-pawn.|
I prefer this game, due to the OTB exchange sac. Pretty amazing. In my top 100, easy.

« La position blanche est désespérée mais la lutte continue. Si les noirs avaient essayé 76...Bf3 dans cette position, alors après 77.Re8+ Kh7 78.Qd3+ g6 79.d7 Bxe2? cela aurait amené une inattendue lueur d’espoir. 80.Rh8+ Kxh8 81.d7-d8=Q+ h7 82.Qxg6+!! Kxg6 (82...fxg6 avec un échec perpétuel.) 83.Qg5+! Kh7 Prendre la reine c’est pat! 84.Qf5+ Kg7 85.Qg5+ avec échec perpétuel. » Karpov
We have mentioned this before but I thought it would be good to have it from the horse's mouth.

|Jun-19-16|| ||Albion 1959: Karpov's first loss after becoming the World Champion. And Andersson's only win in 45 attempts against Karpov.
This game does show hard it was to beat Karpov at this stage of his career. Would Fischer have beaten him so easily (or even at all) as some of the comments on this site have suggested ?|
|Jul-31-16|| ||SimplicityRichard: <Albion 1959: Would Fischer have beaten him (Karpov) so easily (or even at all?)...>|
In my view, I think Fischer would have beaten Karpov in 1975; albeit not easily at all. It would have been a close match. And let us remember that in this particular game, Andersson adopts a strategical plan devised by Fischer in order to beat Karpov after 45 unsuccessful attempts as you say. Andersson only succeeds after employing this "Fischer Plan", and Karpov is defeated.#
|Aug-01-16|| ||Petrosianic: <In my view, I think Fischer would have beaten Karpov in 1975;>|
But the opinion doesn't mean anything because there are no samples of Fischer's play in 1975 to base it on,. What you probably mean is that the Fischer of 1972 would have beaten the Karpov of 1975, which could never have been played in any case.

Doesn't mean anything to Fischer hater Petrosianic.

Do you believe Fischer would have carried on playing longer if he had not participated in the 1969-72 cycle, or are you put out that he got to the top of the heap?
|Aug-02-16|| ||Howard: Now, why would anyone "resent" Benko for what he did? Just how the hell was he or anyone else to know that Fischer would quit chess after becoming world champion ? It wasn't Benko's fault!|
