Oct-15-09  birthtimes: Beautiful last 20 moves by Karpov as he illustrates how to play a rook and bishop and pawns endgame...
Oct-15-09  parisattack: It took awhile but Ken never really got his pieces out of the box. I like 14. h5 surpressing the black rook which often comes out the h-file in this line. Karpov understood rooks!

  Jim Bartle: I thought it was Karpov who liked to move his pieces back to the first rank.

  perfidious: Maybe this is why Smith stuck to poker.
Oct-16-09  AnalyzeThis: He was a 2400 guy. Wish that I was. I think that Smith put up a very reasonable fight here. Karpov showed how deadly he was at the endgame, and his will to win.
Jan-16-10  Rama: Smith was a very talented player but not in the same class as the rest of the field. (Who is?) However he put up a bunch of money for the tournament as I recall, so he played.

Is 51. Kb5! ..., the winning move?

Jul-01-12  Rick360: In defense of the late Ken Smith, one wonders how much better he might've become had he spent the 1950s in Europe. Smith learnt the game comparatively late, aged 18 in 1948.
