  offramp: Rather oddly, this game is mentioned in Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander 's book on Fischer-Spassky World Championship Match (1972) Karpov was described as the new Soviet Wunderkind, and his method of winning this game was described. Quite prescient!

"I can remember the New Year that I celebrated the least. I spent the entire night from 1971 to 1972 playing chess. It was the traditional English tournament in Hastings. I was playing the last game. I had to win. Four roudns before the end I was 2.5 points ahead of Kortchnoi, but then I lost a game, followed by two draws and Kortchnoi began to win. To finish first, I had to beat the British player Markland, who was not even a grandmaster. The game was set for 11 PM, which meant well after midnight Moscow time. I went to the hotel and sat down to prepare myself. Two hours later I went there and by five in the morning Moscow time I had won."

Mar-15-16  Howard: This game is briefly alluded to in the excellent book Karpov's Strategic Wins--Volume 1, as a good example of Karpov's endgame prowess.
