Oct-13-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: I like this game a lot - <chessgames.com>, it is also repeated on the site.

Karpov makes it look so easy to beat a super-GM. "Simple" positions are of course not always so simple.

  whiteshark: After <17...Nc7> Karpov thought he had a positional advantage, while Hübner couldn't discover such one.

<18.b4??> (Hübner)

<18.Nc4= Nb5> (18...Bxg2 19.Kxg2 Nd5 20.a4 and there is no danger for white.(20.Bd2) ) <19.a4 Nxc3 20.bxc3>

(Threat is to get an advantage with 21.Ld5 ed 22.Se3 and 23.c4.)

Oct-18-09  WhiteRook48: 18 b4 was too pushy

Oct-23-09  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 15 a3, 15 e4 offers a pawn on a2. On 15 e4 Bxa2 16 e5 threatens exf6. On 16...fxe5 17 Nxe5 threatens both 18 Bxa8 and 18 Nf7+ On 16...f5 17 Ng5 threatens 18 Bxa8 and 18 Nf7+.

Well, I guess that after 15.e4 black cannot take the Pawn 15...Bxa2?? for simple 16.Ra1 winning a piece.

I don't say that Huebner's description and evaluation of the position is wrong, black is definitely more comfortable in that position but I see nothing grave for white after 21.Nc4. White's disadvantage arose rather from missed tactics, which won the Rook and two Pawns for Knight and Bishop with clear advantage for black thanks to active Rook and connected passers on the Queenside.
