  micahtuhy: Here is what I do not get. At this point Kasparov is up 5-4. All Karpov can do is tie the match and Garry would retain, why play why (legallly speaking) play the game at all?

Can anyone shed light on this?

Explains why Karpov didn't play the usual d5 and/or c5 in the Queen's Indian Defence. A bit drawish.
