Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-06  Whitehat1963: How did these two end up in a tournament final together? They were probably 400 to 500 ELO points apart. And yet we get a draw!

Karpov was 1st reserve for the Soviet team, and had an overall score of +12-1=2. This is a strange game. Anyone know what round it was? Maybe the Soviets had the gold wrapped up.

Not in 1976, not in 2006.

  Jim Bartle: The game score says "14," presumably round 14, so the Soviets most likely did have the gold medal clinched.

  keypusher: This is probably the game Soltis was referring to in his recent _Why Lasker Matters_ where he said Karpov got into an inferior, probably lost position on the Black side of a Center Game against a much weaker opponent. I haven't tried to analyze the game.

I don't think Black is ever worse off or lost but neither player seems to have a lot of ambition

Feb-22-08  nescio: It seems to me White could well have played a few more moves. 22.gxf5 Qxe5 23.Rg4 sets up the nasty threat 24.Bxe4 Bxe4 25.Rxd8 Rxd8 26.Bd2, winning. After 23...Nf6 white can win a pawn and destroy the black king's pawn cover: 24.Rxg7! (Kxg7 25.Bh6+).
Oct-12-13  RollOverBeethoven: The game was in round 14 (out of 15) of the Finals and USSR was only one point ahead of Hungary for the gold medal. This match - against Argentina - was drawn 2-2, Hungary won 2 1/2 - 1 1/2 , so before the last round USSR had a minimal advantage of half a point. Round 15: USSR won 3-1 against Romania and captured gold (Hungary could only draw 2-2) by one point and a half. So this game was important. And yes, it was mentioned by Soltis in "Why Lasker Matters" - game 4 in the book - as an example of bad handling of the opening : 4... d6 ? By the way, boards 1-4 for USSR were Petrosian, Korchnoi, Smyslov and Tal.
Mar-20-16  edubueno: The match was very difficult for the russian team. Argentina did very well.
