  Honza Cervenka: 35...Qxb3 is a blunder which lose the game. After 35...Be8 36.h6 Qf8 37.hxg7 Rxg7 38.Qxg7+ Qxg7 39.Rxg7+ Kxg7 40.Nd4 white has better ending but I think that black should hold draw through accurate play.
Apr-18-10  A Karpov Fan: this game is scary, Black is left fighting for the draw almost immediately and then when he does slip it is catastrophic.

of course when Karpov went on to match Kasparov he got to a level where he almost never slipped and this would not have worked.

  GrahamClayton: 36. ♕c1! is one of those retreating but attacking moves that are sometimes hard to see.
