|Aug-01-04|| ||Chessical: Torre delays c5 to offer an exchange of Q's. Karpov avoids this, and Torre finds that his Q, with rather suprising speed, runs out of safe squares on the K-side. A very effective performance by Karpov. |
|May-01-05|| ||sfm: Black should maybe have played 21.-,Qf7, as it seems like 21.-,Nd7 is the decisive mistake, overlooking the problems after 22. Ba3.
As that is a real unpleasant move in any case, maybe 19.-,cxd4 was a mistake also?|
|May-01-05|| ||Chessical: <sfm> Probably 19...Qf7 is best.|
After <21...Qf7> Karpov's original plan is still effective:
<22.Ba3!> Rfe8 23.Ng5 Qd7 (23...Qc7 24.Bd6) 24.Qg4 h5 25.Qh4 with a strong initiative.
|May-31-08|| ||edbermac: According to the tournament book by Wade, Torre erred with 16...Qf5 and should have played Bh6 instead.|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Chessical: <edbermac> <16... Bh6> is a better move, but after <17. b4> Nc6 18. Nb3 Bxc1 19. Nc5 Qg4 20. Rxc1 White still has a definite advantage.|
|Feb-19-12|| ||King Death: It must have been a relief for Karpov to have an easy time in this last round game after his narrow escape the round before (Smejkal vs Karpov, 1973) which decided the third qualifier, Robert Byrne.|
This variation doesn't seem to quite work for Black, even though he gets the light squared bishops off he has problems because he can't break with ...c5 and his other bishop runs into the wall at e5.
