Jan-20-09  AnalyzeThis: Actually, Karpov never reached Fischer's peak of 2785, despite being helped by ratings inflation.
Jan-20-09  Nina Myers: Interesting job you guys have.
Jun-17-09  KASTILOWSKY: aja! FACT :1
karpov has the highest rating ever
2985 elo in linares 1994 the best performance by a player . and what a player .FACT:2 Karpov has more win tournaments than anybody alive more than 150 Fact :3 Karpov is the greatest endgame player ever lived........PERIOD KARPOV RULES
Jun-17-09  KASTILOWSKY: he can easily beat fischer
Aug-27-10  sevenseaman: I was averse to Karpov games. This is a rare one I have enjoyed.
Oct-20-11  indoknight: this game is better than Karpov's Immortal
Jun-22-12  duplex: Fischer would have beaten Karpow easily in 1975 and again but not so easily in 1978 but not in 1981. Karpow would have learned enough by that time and Fischer would have been another Fischer.
Jun-22-12  King Death: This game was nice, it's just too bad to see the old argument of Karpov-Fischer 1975 resurrected. The discussion in 2005 was enough I think, maybe any future rants should be sent back to Karpov-Fischer World Championship Match (1975). It seems like the right spot.

  Petrosianic: The fact that history records Karpov as Fischer's successor absolutely haunts some people, and always will. They can't so much as see his name in print, much less any game he ever played against anyone, without trying to mentally reverse that result. If they could succeed, that would be the end of it, but of course it can never be changed.
Nov-14-12  LoveThatJoker: GOTD: Doctored Robert

Dec-16-12  leka: it is not so clear that Fischer had beating Karpov.Karpov won all most all the tournaments from 1973 to 1984.Karpov a last hurrah in Linares scoring elo rating recod 3019,6 points.Fischer scored in 1970 blitz 2991 elo rating same as Carlsen in london 2012.Fischer got a draw against Huebner in 1970.Huebner has a win against Fischer in 1970 but Huebner missed it
Jun-30-13  leka: The highest ratings in the tournament chess 1.A.Alekhine 3042 in San Remo 1930 2.A.Nimozowitsch in Dresden in 1926 3034 3.Karpov 3017 in Linares in 1994 These are from the Sonas chess metrics ratings.Sonas gives Karpov 2899 rating score in Linares in 1994 that is totally wrong.J.Sonas do not know the Gauss bell curve stats book numbers
Jun-30-13  whithaw: This is a great game, so fundamental and pure.
Jun-30-13  JoergWalter: my favourite Karpov-Huebner game.

May-13-17  RookFile: I guess it's ok to castle kingside as black but I always preferred queenside castling in this line.

  morfishine: A really great game by Karpov, but sorry folks, he would've lost to Fischer

Fischer was just completely burnt out on chess

  Breunor: Amazing game by Karpov! He had such a positional sense - sacrifices for positional superiority!
May-13-17  The Kings Domain: Nice uncharacteristic sacrificial attack by Karpov, shows how the man had admirable foresight. Good game.
May-13-17  Saniyat24: Karpov sacrificing a piece is rare, but this one here is beautiful...!
