  chessgames.com: This is the corrected score of a game being recently discussed.
Apr-14-05  Hinchliffe: And a wonderful game it is too.A nice example of Karpov's positional skill and immense patience.
Apr-29-07  mvnonup08: Beautiful indeed! This is an eccentric and complicated game, especially with no pawns captured until 28. hxg6. Intense.
Sep-08-07  gambitfan: The ending is great !!!

61 ♕b8+!!!

Sep-08-07  whithaw: What a great player in his prime
Sep-08-07  syracrophy: I think that the move that deserves the credit is 60.♘c5+!, since its the one that pulls the ♔ to the definitive check 61.♕b8+!, followed by 62.♕a8+ and 63.♕xh1
Jan-16-08  Woodey: What is the purpose of 14.Kh2?
Apr-01-09  furrer: i think its avoiding sacs on h3
Apr-01-09  returnoftheking: Karpov's opening play seems not so good here. I checked with Fritz 6 and already before move 20 it gives an eval of -0.60. With moves like Ng1 and Ng2 one cannot be surprised. It is only when Yussupov makes mistakes in the ending (38.Rxf2 activating white's knight for free is really strange to me) that Karpov gains the advantage. Beautiful finish though.
Apr-01-09  WhiteRook48: rather simple ending
Apr-01-09  returnoftheking: well, yes. you are right. But moves like Nc5 and Qb8 make a nice impression, although there are other ways to win
Sep-01-10  Whitehat1963: White to play and win after 58...h2.
Sep-01-10  kurtrichards: 48. ... a3.

  Sastre: <48...a3 49.Ng6+ Ke8 50.f6 a2 51.f7+ Kd8 52.f8Q+ Kxc7 53.Qxa8> is winning for White.
Mar-07-12  PeaceRequiresAnarchy: Wow, great game. I wonder at what point did Karpov realize that he had a win with that skewer. I guess he had no reason to have to calculate it. He had no risk of losing and the way he played for a win was really the only plan, so even if that final skewer didn't exist he may have still played for a draw the same way.
