|Jun-07-04|| ||capablancakarpov: Anatoly Eugenievitch Karpov , aka Demolition Man. |
|Dec-17-04|| ||WhoKeres: Karpov's play reminds me of my Deep Fritz 8 computer. An incredible game! Karpov just keeps attacking loose pieces until Kasparov runs out of moves. |
|Apr-16-06|| ||Fast Gun: If I am correct, this was the only game in serious competitive play where Karpov where defeated Kasparov when he played 1. e4 (apart from a simul game in 1975) This was the first win from the 1984-85 match that was eventually aborted. The game itself is quite an achievement by Karpov in the way that won, whereas most players would have probably tried to trade off pieces and win with extra pawn, Karpov outwits Kasparov with subtle moves that squeeze the life out of Kasparov's pieces. I remember at the time, the move 16.d5 came in for a bit of stick, It is many years since I last played through this game, I will have to have another look and revisit this superb win from Karpov:|
|Nov-17-06|| ||adviser: Karpov plays the erlier games well but Kasparov comes back in the later ones.|
|Nov-21-06|| ||kevin86: Karpov's first win in what was to be a marathon,titanic match. As his custom,Karpov dominated early-but though he kept his title in the controversial end of this match-he emerged a beaten,broken man.|
The Titanic match,like its namesake's maiden voyage,did not survive to its conclusion.
|Oct-16-07|| ||M.D. Wilson: This is a very impressive game. Karpov has extended Spassky's and Fischer's classicism, and, in doing so, given it a more ruthless edge.|
|Nov-02-07|| ||The Rocket: Impressive too see how easy Karpov beats Kasparov in these early games considering that Kasparov crushed just about everyone else on the tour by the time of their first match.|
|Nov-29-07|| ||Fast Gun: I recall at the time, Kasparov resigned at 31 after Bb6. It was only when I came across this game, that were two more moves played and that GK resigned at move 33 and not move 31:|
|Feb-23-08|| ||positionalgenius: Dominating game from karpov,one of his finest.|
|Apr-10-08|| ||smarterthanbobby: must love the opening how he plots
his bisops, pawn sacs, and a diffrent look to this line, impressive.
|Apr-11-08|| ||Knight13: <first win from the 1984-85 match that was eventually aborted.

Thanks for pointing that out. Silman says the same thing in his books, like "Even when you have material imbalance don't just trade pieces off; still try to improve your position as best as you can" (not quoted exactly, but he does give that stuff). Maybe he got it from this very game!!|
So Black lost the b-pawn after playing 10...b6. That really a mistake or what?
|Jun-03-08|| ||ToTheDeath: Karpov draws first blood in the abandoned match- and wins a nice game.|
The exchange of Black's b pawn for White's e pawn would at first glance seem to favor Black, but White's pieces become very active, he gets a queenside pawn majority and play against the weak pawns on d6 and a6.
16...d5? is just bad, losing a pawn by force as Karpov shows. Kasparov preferred "activity" but hunkering down with 16...Be7 was better. Then 17.Nb1! (regrouping) Rab8 18.b3 Rfd8 19.Nc3 Bc6 is only slightly better for White.
The rest of the game is a nice exercise in playing against lose pieces and back rank weakness to force the win of further material. A classic Karpov game.
|Sep-05-08|| ||mjmorri: In the next match, Kasparov played his famous 8...d5! in two games, scoring 1.5-0.5|
|Nov-04-08|| ||Chessdreamer: The notation is wrong. Kasparov resigned after 31.Bb6.|
|Jun-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: really basic|
|Oct-17-09|| ||sac2win: i agree with whiterook. really basic game.winnig pawn on b-file earlier was important.Rest,GK was demolished,ashes to ashes,dust to dust!!!|
|Dec-21-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: I wonder how Korchnoi would have fared if he had played this match against Karpov?|
|Aug-16-12|| ||harrylime: Is Kasparov lost after 17...Bf5?
Or after 24.b4 .. I love this move btw
Super game from Karpov.
|Aug-16-12|| ||BishopTakes: Karpov is Positional master|
|Oct-23-12|| ||Corry: One of best karpov's game... In this game his pieces are really untouchable from the beginning to the end . Kasparov try to attack like a child against his father ... sick!|
