Dec-10-06  Abimelech: 5.Nf5 !? is this the correct approach for white here?

  keypusher: After drawing with Tal in Round 16 (Karpov vs Tal, 1979), Karpov trailed him by half a point in this, the penultimate round.

Karpov was thus in the unusual position (for him) of needing to win with Black. He got what looks to me like a very dubious position out of the opening, and 25...g5!?! is a very un-Karpovian move. But eventually the risk-taking paid off.

Aug-31-07  Marmot PFL: 25.Bxd5 cxd5 26.Qd3 Rd8 27.Rxd5 Qc6 28.c4 looks fine for white, Karpov could forget about winning and find a way to draw. After the bad opening Karpov rebounds and dominates the tactical middlegame.
