|Jun-15-04|| ||tpstar: <CLMM> This game appears dead even by Move 14 = IQP for both sides, then 15. f5! was strong, gaining space on the Kingside. On 19 ... Bd5!? 20. f6! is the right way to disrupt Black's position; if 20 ... gf 21. Qh6 Re6 22. Rf5 & 23. d5 wins quickly, and if 20 ... g6?? 21. Qh6 wins a piece (21 ... Qf8 22. Qxf8+ Kxf8 23. Nxd5), and otherwise 21. fg opens lines anyway. Thus Black chose 19 ... f6 but after 20. d5 White stood better. Credit Karpov for playing to win instead of taking the obvious offer to repeat moves (24-27). To answer your question, given how the game turned plus the final result, I think 16 ... Ne4 was overly ambitious. |
|Aug-22-11|| ||Everett: Karpov's queen was suffering for lack of squares so much he had to pitch his Q-side majority just to extricate her. Excellent play by Carlos.|
|Apr-08-12|| ||estebansponton: La única victoria de un argentino contra un campeón mundial vigente!!!|
|Apr-09-12|| ||GITorquemada: Starting move 23 with black's repetitions one could sense black wanted to draw already but karpov pressed for a win.|
|Dec-02-12|| ||Eduardo Bermudez: By the time Garcia Palermo won this game, Karpov was the world number one, so this was the second number one that Garcia Palermo got beaten !!|
|Dec-02-12|| ||Fusilli: I would say that Garcia Palermo beat Karpov playing Karpov style.|
|Apr-01-15|| ||Howard: Certainly one of the biggest upsets that Karpov ever suffered---no doubt about that.|
Reminds me of another stunning upset he had the following year, in 1983. He lost to a much weaker player at a tournament in England.
|Apr-01-15|| ||Retireborn: He did lose to Miles in the final of the Bath tv tournament, but I'm not sure that Tony's ghost will be happy with "much weaker player"! :)|
I expect you were thinking of this game though:-
Karpov vs W Hartmann, 1983
|Apr-03-15|| ||Howard: You're right----it was indeed the loss to Hartmann. Just couldn't recall the name at the time.|
|Jul-29-17|| ||ColdSong: Great game for Garcia Palermo.|
|Dec-02-18|| ||cunctatorg: Wow!! Just imagine how many Grand Masters do envy fellow GM Carlos Garcia Palermo (at the time being just an IM) for that glorious and hard fought victory!!...|
|Dec-02-18|| ||Swedish Logician: I did not know this game; if someone had told me that it was by Karpov I would have said: "Of course, building up the pressure as white like that is typically Karpovian."
And I would have been totally wrong...
