|Sep-06-06|| ||Zorts: Why didn't Black take the Knight instead of the pawn, 22...Qxe2 ?|
|Sep-07-06|| ||kinghunt72: Black's real flaw was the move 23... e6. Black's advantage in pawns could have paid off with 23... Qxe4, also defending the h7 pawn.|
|Sep-07-06|| ||Zorts: Very cool observation, Kinghunt72, I didn't see that yet. Any comment on the Stahlberg vs Keres, 1936 game?|
|Sep-07-06|| ||RookFile: I remember that the 14.... Nd3+ idea was a book move at one point 20 years ago. I haven't followed the theory of the Dragon since then, though.|
|Sep-24-06|| ||Zorts: Very cool line after 22.Kb1! Qxf3 (for the knight is untouchable) 23.Rxh5 Qxe4 (to defend h7) 24.g6 Qxg6 Then 25. Rg5 pins the Queen against the black King.|
|Nov-13-06|| ||aazqua: trguitar is dead on (I guess I should say crafty is dead on). At 28 I thought n*n certainly is interesting for black. Sure you give up the rook but you get connected passed pawns with the king and the minors there to usher them home. Not clear how that turns out. With connected pawns the extra piece becomes very important - the queen has a lot less purchase and black can hope to keep white's king out / advance the pawns.|
|Jan-07-07|| ||alexmagnus: This game opens all Karpov's books.
So 17-year-old undergraduate of Moscow University outplayed it's graduate (btw Gik was twice a champion of the Moscow University).
|Jan-07-07|| ||Calli: Well, maybe black could transpose Ng6 and e6 to stop g5-g6. 23...Ng6 24.Qxh7+ Kf8 25.Rh6 e6 - still very complicated|
|Jan-07-07|| ||Themofro: Brilliant game by Karpov, i especially like 24. g6.|
|Jan-07-07|| ||beatles fan: Brilliant game all around
|Jan-07-07|| ||esticles: <"Many thanks and congratulations to Victor Reppert - the variation 16...Qxc3 (or, at least, its main line 16...Qxc3 17.Ne2 Qc5) seems to be finally refuted!>|
No, the 16...Qxc3 variation is not refuted!!
If 17. Ne2 black shouldn't play Qc5?, but Nd3! 18. Rxd3 Qa1+. Fritz says it's dead even after 19. Kd2 Qxh1 20. Bxf7 Kxf7 21. Qxh7+ Kf6 22. e5 dxe5 23. Rxd7 Re8 24. g4 Qh3.
|Jan-07-07|| ||terion: Can someone PLEASE tell me how the game ends? Is there NO hope for black?|
|Jan-07-07|| ||Towershield: The pawn promotes or if 36...Bf5 37.Qe7#.|
|Jan-07-07|| ||kevin86: Did anybody notice the quirky queen trap after 17...♕a1+?? 18 ♔d2!!! ?|
Actually the !!! was a joke,as that was white's only move.
|Jan-08-07|| ||terion: but wouldn't the rook take the promoted? then the white queen captures, but... then it's queen vs. bishop and all those pawns. is it impossible? or do the masters just give up when the odds are against.|
|Jan-10-07|| ||tatarch: terion- hopefully it's not just the masters, but also you and I and everyone else who plays chess who would resign in this position.|
|Aug-16-07|| ||kingscrusher: I have done a youtube video annotation for this game:|
Please let me know if you like it!
|Dec-30-07|| ||popski: <kingscrusher> Cool!! More, more, more! :)|
|Jan-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 26...Qxb3+?! is weird|
|Apr-01-09|| ||diabloprancer: <WhiteRook48: 26...Qxb3+?! is weird>
It's forced. W threatens mate and e-pawn is pinned.|
|Jun-09-10|| ||outplayer: I think 11...h5!? is perfectly possible.|
|Sep-20-11|| ||scormus: Nice, I do like the h4 Nf6, h5 Nh5, Rxh5 sequence. I once got a chance to play it in a similar position and was so pleased|
|Sep-20-11|| ||Meister326: 26,Rf5 is a beautiful move by young Karpov. Black is done.|
|Aug-16-15|| ||ToTheDeath: 14...Nd3+! is correct.
18.Rxh5! gxh5 19.Rh1 was also winning.
|Mar-14-16|| ||newhampshireboy: Now I know why Karpov is one of my favorite players of all time!|
