Apr-22-05  rndapology: I am surprised nobody has commented on this awesome game by Karpov. 11. Kf2 is a stunning move, and further play shows that Karpov saw the exchange of the queens coming well beforehand.
Apr-22-05  acdc: yep. he went on to win this tournament.
Apr-22-05  TheSlid: 25.f5 looks like a nasty shock. Exactly the reason I hate playing against computers.
Apr-22-05  Marvol: <rndapology> I don't think 11.Kf2 is that stunning considering it has been played since 1962: Leonid Stein vs Yanofsky, 1962 plus another 40-odd entries in the CG database. The only thing different here is the insertion of the a5, a4 moves.

I also don't see how Karpov saw the Queen exchange coming. Black plays Bf8 and Qb4 - if anyone, Ljubo saw the exchange coming.
