Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-04  dac1990: This is an excellent Karpov game which deserves a bit more attention.
Nov-03-14  krippp: It's a good game from 18-year-old Karpov, but his opponent is not very strong, repeatedly ignoring good development:

<9.Nf5?!> moves the same piece twice for little compensation. <9.Re1> or <9.Bf4> were more logical.

<16.Bb2?> again moves a piece twice, and does nothing against Karpov's threat of ..Nh4. <16.Qd2> was best: if black wants to retain queens and plays <16..Qg6> then the e-pawn is safe and g2 is guarded, and if <16..Qh5> which prepares two devious plans against f3, then <17.Qf2> and <18.Nd2> hold it. But even <16.Bc1 Qg6 17.Bf4> is better, moving the bishop twice but with tempo, and ready to protect the king with Bg3.

<18.Qf2?> again moves a piece twice, and is based upon a lack of calculation. Juhnke probably thought he could trap black's bishop with <19.g4?>, but this weakens f3 dramatically, and if he plays <20.Qg3> to attack the bishop, then <20..Rf8> simply crashes through. Better was <18.Nd2>, and it is better to defend against <18..Bh3> with <19.g3>, threatening the knight if black's queen moves from g-file, and who knows, maybe he'd get to play f4 eventually.

<20.Nd2?> needs no comment. If <19.g3> had been played instead of <19.g4?>, then <20.Nd2 Qxd2?? 21.gxh4> survives. Juhnke's only chance of prolonging the game now was with <20.Bc1 Qf6 21.Nd2>, but <21..e4> destroys him anyway.

Yeah, he played kinda junky.
