Jul-01-05  chesed: One of my kind of games! Karpov is a real master in patience here. See how long the game took? But at last, Ljubojevic made the blunder: 56 ..Nc7 where after 57 Bb2+ is .

Karpov's always prepared for long games where he gets just a small advantage in the position, and as the game gets longer, he amplifies this advantage with great mastery. Amazing isn't it? Check out the other long Karpov games.

  Mateo: <chesed> By the way, it was 66...Nc7. I don't think it was the losing move. It was rather 70...Ke7?. Better 70...Kd7, which could hold. The point is that after 71.Rg8 71...e4 works because Bf8+ is not a threat like in the game. 71...e4??, actually played, was a successful suicide attempt.
