Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-22-15  jerseybob: This game is loaded with that Karpov trademark: quiet moves full of poison. 10.Bc4! is a star move, holding the white center together just when black counterplay threatens. After 12..Bf6 (ef6!?)the isolated e-pawn is weakened, although 14..e5 looks like a mistake after Karpov's 15.d5. Eventually the e-pawn goes and black's counterplay is nipped by 28.Bc4!, an echo of move 10. A very pleasing game.
