  vonKrolock: <22... Kf8?? 23.g4??> One of the more amazing cases of double Chess blindness on record - Karpov allows 23.Nb4!, winning on the spot, and Andersson miss his moment...
Mar-20-05  RookFile: Pretty humorous when you play
over a game like this, and line
it up with Kasparov's book on
Fischer, where he explains that
Fischer would have had a hard
time against Karpov, because
the defensive standard became
so much higher....

Just thinking about that a little...
remember that Reshevsky showed
tremendous tenacity and defensive
resoursefulness in the
Fischer - Reshevksy match. The
Fischer of 1972 had advanced a level
or two even beyond that strength.

Reshevsky and Karpov are two different animals, Fischer blunders as well, and Fischer couldn't keep his mind straight, then or now, to play chess at the highest level after '72.
