|May-10-05|| ||Orbitkind: This upset is amazing. Karpov, at this point (1983) world champion for about 8 years and rated 2710 loses with white to someone rated 2290; 420 points below him. That has to be the biggest upset I've seen. Unsurprisingly the game was fought on very tactical grounds, as most upsets are. I expect Karpov was not happy with this game at the time.|
|May-10-05|| ||WannaBe: After 33 moves, both sides are relatively equal, but 34. ♖f2??|
|May-13-05|| ||Catfriend: <WannaBe> It's not a blunder, the rook has nowhere to go. So you really can't say <relatively equal>!|
|Apr-18-06|| ||perfidious: 34. Rf2 is by no means a blunder; Black's more active pieces and powerful h-pawn set White an insuperable task in his efforts to save the game.|
|Apr-07-10|| ||whiteshark: 27 y-o <Wolfram Hartmann> from Bamberg. Probably the game of his life, beating the then reigning world champion with black.|
|Apr-07-10|| ||whiteshark: Additionally to the big ELO gap, it was Karpov's first defeat against a German player.|
|Apr-07-10|| ||whiteshark: <33.Nd5 Bxd5 34.Qc3> has been suggested. |

Threat is 35.d4
|Apr-07-10|| ||whiteshark: Wolfram Hartmann|
|Apr-07-10|| ||whiteshark: 37.Qa7 and 38.e7 were poor moves, played in big time trouble. Karpov resigned when the fog (of time trouble) had been lifted.|

I care. Evidently whiteshark cares.
<Your comment fills a much needed gap.>

|Jan-07-14|| ||perfidious: Here is a miniature where a strong GM loses to a twelve year-old girl who, it should be pointed out, herself went on to become a grandmaster: Nunn vs Hoang Thanh Trang, 1992.|
|Jan-07-14|| ||Benzol: <keypusher> Message for you in your forum.|
|Jan-08-14|| ||JohnBoy: LMAO <perf>. Nunn-Trang is a nice game, indeed (as is this). It's of note because a strong kid was flexing developing muscles!|
|Apr-15-14|| ||mrbasso: Black played like a World Champion and White like an Amateur?|
Not quite correct.
25.Bxd1? was the turning point.
25.Nfxd1 with Qf2 next and White stays in control.
