|Mar-22-04|| ||Lawrence: Isn't this a mistake? In his book, Karpov ends at 42.Kg4 and says that the adjourned rook ending is easily won by Whites because of the mobility of the h pawn. But after 47.h6 (were these moves really played?) how is he going to crown that pawn?|
Garry had time trouble and played 31...Ne4? when he should have played 31...Re1 or 31...Kg8, and 35...h5+ when he should have played 35...Kg8 or 35...Rfe8. (Tolya and Junior)
|Mar-22-04|| ||chessgames.com: You're right, the moves after 42.Kg4 are junk, and we removed them. Thanks. |
|Apr-19-08|| ||positionalgenius: A crystal-clear karpov win over his rival. One of my personal karpov favorites.|
|Apr-19-08|| ||HungryGoldfish: Instead of 28. Ng3, why not Nf4 aiming for the supported e6?|
|Apr-19-08|| ||HungryGoldfish: eh, nevermind. RxP. This is why my rating is so low.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: Apparently the advance of the h-pawn is easily decisive, but after 42..Rd5 what is the shortest way for white to win?|
Could somebody offer some computer analysis?
|Oct-06-08|| ||utssb: 43.Rb7 is probably the fastest. But there are many ways to win this, 43.h5 wins too.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: <utssb>, yes I can see it is won, I was just curious what the fastest method was.|
|Oct-06-08|| ||utssb: 42...Rd5 43.Rb7 c5 44.h5 Kg8 45.g6 Kf8 46.Rf7+ Kg8 47.Rf5 Rd4+ 48.Kg5 (3.87)|
|Oct-08-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: <utssb> <42...Rd5 43.Rb7 c5 44.h5 Kg8 45.g6 Kf8 46.Rf7+ Kg8 47.Rf5 Rd4+ 48.Kg5>|
But what about 44...Rd4+ ? The white king cannot leave the kingside pawns now e.g. 45.Kf5,Rd5+
|Nov-01-08|| ||utssb: Well the solution to that is quite easy:
44...Rd4+ 45.Kf5 Rd5+ 46.Kf4 Rd4+ 47.Ke5
|Jun-28-09|| ||Knight13: 35... Rfe8, in order to hold on to the e pawn for the prevention of rook on the seventh rank, is fatal.|
36. Na5!, then Black is dead. 36...Rf8 37. f6.
|Aug-17-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Kasparov's comments in "Unlimited Challenge":
"Karpov took his last time-out before game twenty-two, knowing full well that to draw it would be tantamount to losing the match. He succeeded in narrowing the gap in points. In time trouble, I made two impulsive mistakes which cost me the game. I was virtually paralysed in this game by a powerful feeling of responsibility for every decision I had to make.
My blunder in the previous game (Kasparov vs Karpov, 1985), was preying on my mind. This made me over-cautious and led to the time trouble. But to give Karpov his due, he proved that he had nerves of steel at a critical moment in the match."
