|Dec-04-08|| ||acirce: Andersson says he had less than 5 minutes left for 12 moves after 28..Bxh2.|
|Apr-23-09|| ||vmi: Has anyone noticed the draw Karpov missed at move 74?|
|Apr-23-09|| ||schroedingers cat: funny pun :)|
|Apr-23-09|| ||ounos: I think 43. Nc1 was a poor move. Why not 43. Nc3 instead? The e4 need so badly protection. Then note how the knight spends two further moves (48, 49) to go to c3 after all, a bit late though.|

On c3 the knight can be kicked away by ...b4, so it doesn't really help this way. And after 43.Nc3 Ng5 44.Nd2 (as in the game, defending against Nf3+) Qc8! White is in serious trouble.
|Apr-23-09|| ||kevin86: A very slow moving-but successful attack by black. The champ-to-be is surprised.|
|Apr-23-09|| ||ZZpatzer: < vmi: Has anyone noticed the draw Karpov missed at move 74?>|
yes, why didn't white attempt to repeat moves here?

Because then (i.e., in case of 74.Kc3) Black would have won immediately with 74...Qf1!; 72...Ra3+? which Andersson played instead a couple of moves earlier in the same position was just the result of time trouble toward the end of the third time control - there's no draw here.
|Apr-23-09|| ||WhiteRook48: who was dancing?|
|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.

|Apr-23-09|| ||Dr. J: <DoctorC> Welcome to the neighbourhood! You'll find that the natives are friendly.|
|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.
