|Jun-21-06|| ||kevin86: Karpov found a very novel way to castle queenside-via e4.lol|
The ending was sharp-I bet 9/10 beginning players would have played to attack the g pawn at move seventy-two. Karpov smartly,fixed both pawns. If either moves,both are lost.
|Jun-21-06|| ||Chess Classics: <mahmoudkubba> Err...pardon?|
<xenophon: didn't Karpov beat up Hort in this line?I think Hort got doubled g pawns and Karpov sacrified the exchange on f5> Yes indeed! The game was the same until move 10 when black played 10...h5. Karpov vs Hort, 1978
|Jun-21-06|| ||Halldor: Chess Informant gives a truncated score of this game or so it seems, where 51.fxe5 is the last move. It also deviates from this score from move 44: <. . . 43.Re4 b5 44.Qc6+ Kd8 45.Qxa6 Qxh5 46.f4 Qf5 47.Qa8+ Kc7 48.Qa5+ Kc6 49.c4 b4 50.Qxb4 Re6 51.fxe5 1-0 <>> - According to some of the previous posts we do have a corrected score here.|
|Jun-21-06|| ||sandmanbrig: i do have to wonder how white didnt get mated in the early goings|
|Jun-21-06|| ||Petrocephalon: <aktajha> Thanks for supplying those Karpov annotations.|

Kevin, you may be right that many players would put their rook behind the wrong pawn in the endgame, but Karpov's move fits with one of the general rules that even (tournament) beginners should know:
Put your Rook behind the more advanced pawn!
This was a fascinating struggle. I haven't looked it up yet, but it seems be good enough to have made it into Kasparov's "My Great Predecessors". Has anyone checked that yet?
|Jul-01-06|| ||mahmoudkubba: Am I missing something?? in <itz2000> kibitzing?: I think that white didn't win more then black lost.> did he meant more than not more then?? Really I was thinking of that after noticing both <itz2000> saying <<mahmoud> are they okay atleast?> and <<Chess Classics>: <mahmoudkubba> Err...pardon?> as it seems I do remember a film one day in Arabic Egyptian when a doctor used to see his neighbor doctor working a lot and he himself got nothing to do and how he uses to feel jealous so he thought to challenge that doctor is to make an analysis and research on a gang earlier than a crime and later than such a crime. Of course when the gang were caught by police he was caught as well and he really started giving reason(s) for his doing. Suddenly the other doctor came in and said to the police that he support what the doctor did thinking he was doing a good research or something HaHaHa, this was one of the good nice laughing seen of the film.|
|Aug-23-07|| ||sanyas: Does Black really have a forced draw at move 21? That's a shame...|
|Aug-23-07|| ||keypusher: <fezzik> No, it's not. |
<Emperor Atahualpa> There are lots of candidates, but I would guess spitecheck is referring to Gligoric vs Fischer, 1959.
|Aug-23-07|| ||keypusher: Here's another famous example of the king taking the scenic route to the queenside.|
Chigorin vs H Caro, 1898
|Aug-23-07|| ||sanyas: But it seems that the king march wasn't actually sound in this one.|
|Aug-23-07|| ||keypusher: <sanyas> and you think it was in Chigorin-Caro? :-)|
|Aug-23-07|| ||sanyas: Yeah, sure, White's pieces look much better placed there than in this Karpov game. It seems like it might work, whereas the king looks way too exposed here.|
|Aug-24-07|| ||keypusher: <Sanyas> Vukovic annotates Chigorin-Caro in his classic <The Art of Attack> in chess. He concludes that Chigorin's king maneuver was not sound and Black could have gained the advantage at several points. I'll post some of Vukovic's notes on that page.|
|Oct-17-08|| ||sleepyirv: Karpov can defeat you with his King and his King only! Okay, he can't but that was rather amusing.|
|Mar-07-09|| ||outplayer: I can't see this game so it seems that has been deleted.|
|Mar-07-09|| ||Absentee: <outplayer: I can't see this game so it seems that has been deleted.>|
What trouble are you having? I can see it just fine.
|Jul-15-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: Instead of 13.f3 white could play also 13.Rh4!? with idea 13...cxd4 14.g5 |
17...Kxf7! 18.Kxe4 d2! 19.Bxd2 Nc5+ 20.Qxc5 Qxd2 gives black decisive advantage.
|Jul-15-09|| ||Honza Cervenka: <17...Kxf7! 18.Kxe4 d2! 19.Bxd2 Nc5+ 20.Qxc5 Qxd2 gives black decisive advantage.> Of course, 18.fxe4 Ne5 is not much better here.|
|Oct-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Karpov centralizes his king in the middlegame!|
|Aug-14-12|| ||maelith: Amusing game by Karpov!!|
|Oct-23-12|| ||HeMateMe: "Holy Wild Game, Batman"! This sure doesn't look like Karpov.|
|Nov-16-12|| ||Ralph 91: what will happen if the black king captured the knight on the 15th move?|
