Feb-10-09  blacksburg: <King's Indian Defense: Saemisch. Bobotsov-Korchnoi-Petrosian Variation>

this has got to be the longest name for an opening variation. even longer than <Queen's Gambit Declined, Tartakower-Makagonov-Bondarevsky System>

Karpov was 16 when this was played. Does anyone see the winning line for white, after M.D. resigns?

Dec-13-11  Retireborn: <HeMateMe> White is just a piece up, he can play Qg2 to fend off any perpetual check and then just win with his a-pawn.

Incidentally Karpov and Dvoretsky are around the same age; this game was played in a USSR junior championship.

According to Anatoly's own notes, he missed a cleaner win with 34.Qxe8+! Kg7 35.Qxe5+ Qxe5 36.Bd4!

  HeMateMe: That certainly looks easier, with Queens off the board. In the actual game I'm surprised the person down a piece didn't play on a little longer, in the hope of getting a perpetual check.
Dec-13-11  Retireborn: Probably they had reached the end of the first playing session and Dvoretsky didn't think it was worth sealing a move and/or playing a second session a piece down.

Bit of a shame that they apparently never played each other again.
