  maxi: The ending of this game does not agree with that given in Karpov's "Les échecs. Apprendre et progresser", 2007. After 22.Qd3 Karpov has, instead of 22...Qb5, the following very effective line: 22...Nxc1 23.Rbxc1 Rxc1 24.Rxc1 Qh6 25.Qc4 Bb5 26.Qc5 b6, White resigns. I don't know why this is so.

  maxi: It could be an analysis by Karpov of Botvinnik's game; later he confused his analysis with the original game.

  Fusilli: Beautiful demonstration of dynamic piece play.
