  vonKrolock: The USSR 55th Ch http://members.aol.com/graemecree/c... was the very last version whith a so formidable participation, and surely have it's place amongst the greatest tournaments... Recent interview on-line whith K & K, they answered a question about this (translation from Russian by babelfish - passably dechifrable) <It passed 16 years from the time 55- GO of the championship OF THE USSR, in which participated Karpov and Caspar. It is how much to us to await the following tournament in Russia with their participation? Anatoliy Karpov: Already 16 years! In Garry kimovich, I think, my opinion on this calculation. Garry Caspar: It is difficult to say, when a similar event takes place again. Even according to the formal signs present tournament does not suffice to that, in 1988. But the main thing is then no one of the participants occurred to turn from game to it. 55-1 championship OF THE USSR stand by the house: in it, I will repeat, they played everything!> By my grandmother's samovar, i assure that i could arrive to a better translation whith a lot of time, but Babelfih is considerably quicker than BABUSHKA-fish...

Board position appears to be that after 26.Nd6.

Dec-15-17  Howard: In the now-defunct Inside Chess, IM
John Donaldson stated that 20.Bf1 was too slow, and that 20.g3! would have been "much better"...

...but, then, Karpov gives 20.Bf1! an exclamation point in the Informant.
