Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-24-10  Everett: Karpov skillfully squashes white's initiative with 25..Qe8 and 26..Qd8 while simply cutting off the king to ensure the full point.
May-04-11  nelech: A fascinating position appears after 22 R7 ( instead of 22 Qf4 )... Be5 23 Qf3 Bx7 24 Qxf7+ Kh8 25 Nf3!
Apr-06-16  DanielHoseano: At move 24. Why didn't Karpov play Nd3?
Apr-06-16  jvv: 24. ... Kd3 25.Bxf7 Kh8 26. Qf6!!

I am afraid that 25...Be5 spoils the fun for white. But maybe 25.f4! with intention 26.Nf3 is worth of consideration here.
