  offramp: 33...fxe4 might have won. This game looked a bit dull to me when I first played over ir but after I read Kasparov's notes I realised how tense it had been.
Nov-12-06  jamesmaskell: Some comments from Polugaeuevsky and Damsky:

After 12...Bf2

<White has just prophylactically reinforced his d4 pawn by Bc1-e3-f2 and plans sooner or later to initiate active play in the centre by advancing e2-e4. In principle Black could have "disregarded" this threat, since the complications after 13...Nc4 14. e4 <if 14. b3, then 14...Nd6 and the planned break is less favourable for White> 14...Nxb2 15. Qc2 Nc4 16. exd5 exd5 17. Nxd5! N6a5 he has his trumps. But he preferred to narrow sharply the battle region, by prophylactically closing the centre>


<In conceding the e5 square to his opponent, Black has also secured for himself an analogous ooutpost in the centre. But the main point is that now pawn tension is possible onlu after the double-edged g3-g4 wwhich would expose the white king. The subsequent manoeuvring battle confirmed the correctness of this strategy, and the game ended in a draw. True, we cannot avoid mentioning that the decision made by Black on his 13th move also made it extremely difficult for him to begin an open piece battle but nevertheless an objective assessment of the position demanded precisely this prophylaxis>

Jun-29-09  Knight13: 33...fxe4 leaves White's king safer. No posibility of Black's queen utilizing the d file and possibly coming down to d2 and infultrating.
Jan-25-15  Fanques Fair: This seems to be the very first time Kingīs Indianīs lover Kasparov has the guts to play it against Karpov.
