|Apr-10-04|| ||WMD: A typical exhibition of Karpov's superior endgame technique. 57...Bd1 condemns white to Zugzwang. If he plays his bishop to b2, then Karpov can bring his king over to e4 and d3 via f4. Kh1 also surrenders the e4 square. |

Thanks for the explanantion.
|Jun-11-08|| ||Sergey Sorokhtin: Kasparov say that 44.d5? is hopeless for black, but this position is draw! 47.Kg2?? 47.c6!=
Bishop walk to a3,e7, with attak h4 pawn.
King go to e3,d2 for control a pawn.
|Jun-14-08|| ||Sergey Sorokhtin: not this position, but positiot after 44 d5 ? was draw.later later|
|Sep-25-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: 57..Bd1! and white is in total zugzwang!
58.Kh1,Kg4 59.Kg2,Kf5 60.Kf2,Ke4 etc
|Oct-12-08|| ||Sergey Sorokhtin: Yes,totalzugzvang, but black missed win early . Triple!!! 46...c6! for exempel|
|Oct-12-08|| ||Everett: <Sergey Sorkhtin> See Eatman's post. Seems Karpov already knew about the inferior 44.d5 before Kasparov went to town with his critical eye and fine-toothed computer.|
|Oct-23-08|| ||Sergey Sorokhtin: Everett! Endgame is comedy of mistakes. Karpovs make mistakes too.
Look game better.|
|Jun-03-11|| ||libertyjack: What if 58. Bd2?|
|Jun-03-11|| ||Sastre: If 58.Bd2 one variation is <58...a3 59.Bc3 a2 60.Bb2 Bf3 61.Kf2 Be4 62.Kg1 Kg4 63.Kf2 Kf4 64.Ke2 Bf3+ 65.Kf2 Ke4 66.Ba1 Bh5 67.Kf1 Kd3 68.Kg2 Kc2 69.Kh3 Kb1 70.Bc3 a1Q 71.Bxa1 Kxa1>. |
The White king can't stop the Black king from penetrating. If the White king guards the h-pawn, the Black king will invade on the queenside and help the a-pawn promote. If the White king prevents invasion on the queenside, the Black king can attack the h-pawn.
|Oct-11-11|| ||wordfunph: notes by IM Tibor Karolyi..
<Kurajica told me a few interesting facts about this game. He had analysed the adjourned position with grandmaster Ivanovic for half an hour and they concluded that it was a draw. At the end of the analysis they started to drink wine, and he still had a bad hangover when play was resumed. Kurajica also felt that Karpov in his published analyses was more proud of this endgame than he should have been. The Bosnian grandmaster wisely decided not to drink before any of their subsequent games, and indeed he was able to draw all three of them.>
