Jul-16-06  KingG: 20.Rd5!, a very nice exchange sac by Karpov.
Mar-22-07  Helios727: How do you know when to sac the exchange and when not to?
Jan-13-09  maelith: This is a very high level game. The ideas are very deep. Karpov at his best.
Feb-27-12  ColdSong: Art of taking the full point.Wonder if Karpov found this impressive variation on the board.
Aug-07-14  SpiritedReposte: <Helios727> I sacrifice the exchange (and all material) for positional or temporal advantages.

Maybe it restricts your opponent to a bind. Maybe it speeds up your attack or creates some passed pawns.

Or maybe your opponent consolidates and wins with the extra material.

Aug-07-14  capafischer1: After bd5 on move 20 for black where is the forced win for white? If you capture with queen here comes rd8 with tempo and if you capture with pawn you simply have an isolated pawn.
