Aug-01-08  Roark: Karpov goes textbook strategical and endgame on em'.

  perfidious: From <Ray Keene's> remarks in the British Chess Magazine article devoted to this event (pp 193-99), on the position after Liberzon's 32nd move:

'Such positions Karpov handles to perfection-that perhaps is not his main achievement. He also knows how to bring them about with amazing regularity!'

This perceptive remark cuts to the heart of Karpov's genius as a player, in my opinion. At the peak of his extraordinary career, there was a feeling of inevitability playing through a number of his games.

An exceptional positional feel, the heart of a lion, plus pure knowledge-all these qualities go into the making of a great champion.

Mar-09-11  rilkefan: Is Black really lost after move 32? If so, why? I see he's got an extra pawn island, and f6 is weak, but otherwise he's actively placed and has B vs N in an open position.
Oct-08-16  frankstrater: The endgame starts after move 27. It is typical that Karpov chooses to play 28. c3 instead of winning a pawn:

28. ♖xf6 ♖d1+ 29. ♘c1 ♗c5 30. ♖xe6 ♖h1 31. c3 ♖xh2 32. ♘d3

It is very likely Karpov was ahead in time on the clock and picks the game continuation to keep the pressure on.

His opponent might have been in time-trouble, which explains the rather bad move 39... a3, the point where black looses the game (39... b4! 40. ♖xh7 a3 and black can still fight for the draw)

Jan-16-18  Howard: Interesting that this game made its way into "300 Best Games"....the latest issue of American Chess Magazine states that this game was generally overlooked in the USSR because of the fact that Liberzon had left that country to live somewhere else (Israel I think).

This game, incidentally, made the top-10 in the Informant.
