Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-05  Abaduba: In two words: Karpov owns.
It seems to me like 13. dxe5 gave Black the Q-side space advantage that Karpov so meticulously pushed into a win. Can someone who knows some of the vast amounts of Ruy theory say whether this is a book move, and what else White can do? (Out of curiosity, not because I want to learn the theory)
Apr-30-05  MWaller: 13. d5 is more common or 13. Nf1
Jan-18-06  shamekovich: Botvinnik: "I like this game. You're
learning. You will continue to play
the Ruy Lopez - the touchstone of
positional play, and report back
what you have learned."

Anatoly: "I didn't like his 16 Bg5
move. I trapped his bishop later.
I thought he would play his knight
there instead, when he could play
into d5 with his other knight
because of my h-pawn. I'd have to
play ...h6, but he gets to keep his

Botvinnik: "Hmmmm..." Uh hrrrmpf!"
Yes, well..."

Mar-21-14  LIFE Master AJ: Karpov shows that space is important ... White literally gets squeezed to death at the end.
Mar-22-14  john barleycorn: <shamekovich: ...

Botvinnik: "Hmmmm...">

Where have I seen this "Hmmmm..." as well? With another "great" of chess? Or with a shameless plagiator?

May-13-15  Cactusjuice: Perfect play by karpov
