Kibitzer's Corner
May-04-05  Hinchliffe: Fantastic play from a young Karpov. Already it is apparent that here is a player who relishes a game where he can acrue slight advantages auntil they prove too great for his opponent to handle.
Jan-18-06  shamekovich: My goodness, this is an EXTRAORDINARY
game for one who is only 11!!
Surely Botvinnik cannot now say:
"This young boy understand nothing
about Chess!"
Apr-11-09  M.D. Wilson: Botvinnik said a lot of things. After Karpov became the player we all know, I'm sure Botvinnik felt a little sheepish.
Apr-30-09  M.D. Wilson: Karpov's technique at 11 was superlative. Even at such a young age, he can already be compared to Capablanca, his great idol. In fact, Botvinnik compared Karpov to Capablanca; Kasparov, Botvinnik opined, was much more in the mould of Alekhine.
Oct-02-10  jackpawn: Yes, very impressive play by the 11 years old Karpov.
