Jul-31-09  totololo: Get two rabits out of the hat! ... and you win.... Kasparov was so fast that he caught them both and pulled some of his own... but here is Karpov playing .... It is funny but he sucombed to his own strategy to Spassky at Corsica Masters.... He should have a hat problem!
Dec-12-09  M.D. Wilson: What are you talking about?
Sep-02-12  soberknight: Move 4 was supposedly the earliest theoretical novelty.
Sep-02-12  ephesians: Karpov relied upon his endgame strength. Surely Miles should have been able to draw this with correct play.
Mar-24-15  SpiritedReposte: Just clicking through, why 27. ...Nd3? Exchanging the knight for the not so good bishop.

Once the rook ending hit, Karpov showed amazing ability. Just masterful how he converted that.

Mar-24-15  Nerwal: <why 27. ...Nd3? Exchanging the knight for the not so good bishop.>

White's main plan is probably b4-c5. And this is easier to achieve with a ♗ on d3, although technically bad, than a ♘ on e2. In the game Black was in time to counter this and stood quite ok.
