Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-20-06  goldenbear: 20.Rac1, with the same idea of Nb5 seems more logical to me.
Apr-26-06  blingice: Moves 29 and 30 look like they are from a cartoon. Did Karpov have any intent with either of them other than catching the pawn? Wasn't there a more effective way to catch it?
Apr-09-07  Fisheremon: After 14...Nb4?! White missed 15.Be4!? with a strong pressure on Queen-side.
Apr-12-08  Knight13: 17. f4 does not seem logical to me. Why leave the e-pawn by himself?
Dec-27-08  Chessdreamer: Correction. ...31.Rfxb2 1/2-1/2.

  offramp: Under the old rules Karpov would have won the match here.

With +4 =17 -0 he would have 12 points, enough to win a 24-game match.

In fact, the players were only half way through.
