Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-03  Sarimanok: Karpov is one great positional player. :)
Mar-22-03  skakmiv: what's the compensation after the pawn sacrifce?
Mar-22-03  Spitecheck: The compensation is probably in stopping black from castling (and losing tempos) if you are referring to white's h5 pawn. Karpov probably didn't find trying to defend the a2 pawn and h5 pawn simultaneously a worthwhile goal, if it is even possible without compromising the white advantage.
Mar-23-03  Sarimanok: In addition to Spitecheck's comment after 16...Nxh5 white has a highly secured center with a plus in tempo and space. The center files also serves as spring board for white's rooks which are devastating in the endgame.

  maxi: In this variation of the Caro-Kann White's h5 Pawn seems to be a weakness, but it exerts a lot of pressure, and if Black takes it he has to spend tempos and also open the h-file to the White Rook.
