Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-25-05  Chopin: Black should have resigned after 15. f3.
Dec-25-05  hitman84: it reminds me of a famous quote
"A game is never won by resigning"
Sep-26-11  sicilianhugefun: After 15. f3 there is no point in playing further against a guy named Karpov
Jul-24-17  culsax: Why did Karpov take the knight with the pawn instead of taking it with the queen, at 9. ??
May-19-18  SurrealistSquare: <culsax> Karpov wanted to open the "a" file for his rook to attack Black's soon to be weak a pawn, well worth the doubled b pawns.
