|Sep-12-12|| ||perfidious: < keypusher: You're denying the world "caissic coitus interruptus"?>|
To deny this gem to the world would be criminal.
|Jul-24-13|| ||Everett: < King Death: <rilkefan> Here's another dry game from the early days (Karpov vs Quinteros, 1973).>|
Apparently Karpov manages to dehydrate his opponents' chess armies.
|Nov-02-13|| ||perfidious: <Everett>: ROFL|
|Jul-23-14|| ||rickycota: I dare anyone to play like this without using internet. See the context they were and where are we now. Even so I think almost none of us who are in the forum can play a very high GM level and that's why we are here so stop complaining about mistakes everyone makes mistakes. If you like see machine games, so boring and perfect sometimes that almost always end in draws.|
|Jul-23-14|| ||1971: this what i like to see|
|Jul-23-14|| ||1971: <rickycota> youre wrong ill play anyone|
|Mar-08-17|| ||Rafaelvleite: Whites Nb1 was brilliant. Blacks Nb8 was the final mistake|
|Mar-08-17|| ||MissScarlett: Monkey see, monkey do.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||HeMateMe: I like the pun. Terrific game. looks like 36. B-e7+ and 37. Bxf6+ kill it. The Knight will check on g5 and black is overwhelmed.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Olavi: It's funny that Karpov did not include this wonderful game in his 50 best games in 1977.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||RookFile: What a fantastic pun!|
|Mar-16-17|| ||piltdown man: Great pun. And what a game!|
|Mar-16-17|| ||clement41: After 9...Bd7 black wants in this Sicilian to trade knights on d4 then put the Bd7 on c6 to pressure e4. Hence the manúuver 10 Nb3 aimed at preventing this, by letting black's position be cramped|
|Mar-16-17|| ||devere: After 24.Nb1!! it is doubtful that Black can any longer hold the game, even by perfect play. This is a deservedly famous game by Karpov.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Ironmanth: Safe to say I don't understand this game; perhaps after another cup of morning Joe! I suspect infinite subtlety being negotiated that I am just missing. Sigh. C'est la vie. Hope others enjoy this one.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||bobbydan: The pun is greater than the game. AK=Avtomat Kalashnikov and AK=Anatoly Karpov!!|
|Mar-16-17|| ||whiteshark: <AK-74> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-74|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Howard: Yet ANOTHER game which I'm almost positive has been GOTD before. What gives ?|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Andrew Chapman: I wondered about 17... c5 with idea Nc6 and Nd4.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||devere: <Ironmanth: Safe to say I don't understand this game; perhaps after another cup of morning Joe! I suspect infinite subtlety being negotiated that I am just missing. Sigh. C'est la vie. Hope others enjoy this one.>|
This to me is the classic "what do you do when there is nothing obvious to do?" game. It's what separates the world champions like Karpov from the rest of us.
|Mar-16-17|| ||tamar: Adhiban said he vaguely recalled Nb1 when he played 18 Nb1 in his sensational game at Tata Steel in January B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017|
|Mar-16-17|| ||Strelets: <bobbydan> Avtomat Kalashnikova. Genitive case.
But that's beside the point. Karpov plays with phenomenal accuracy and calmly, almost casually, dissects the former world champion and victor of the one of the strongest Soviet championships in the history of the country. He was in inhuman form in the '73-75 cycle, sharing first with Korchnoi in the Interzonal and then proceeding to shut out Polugaevsky +3-0=5, beat Spassky +4-1=6, and get up +3-0=14 at one point against Korchnoi in the final. That he did not play Fischer in '75 is still the greatest loss chess has ever suffered.|
|Mar-16-17|| ||morfishine: If there are any notes on this game, I'd love to see'm. One doesn't expect Spassky to get shoved around and porked like this, even if it is Karpov|
|Mar-16-17|| ||RookFile: When black played ...e5, this more or less became the Pirc Defense for black. I realize that's a viable opening for black, but it is somewhat passive, and not really suited to Spassky's style of play.|
|Mar-17-17|| ||Nova: Nice game from Karpov...continuing to squeeze and poke Black's position until the decisive tactic arises!|
