  Billy Ray Valentine: If black does not blunder with his final move, can he survive?

Huh? What about 62...hxg5?

  Karpova: 59.Kh3 Rg8 60.Re6 with 61.Ng5 and then Rh6 looks pretty ugly for black (i.e. 60...Qb4 61.Ng5 Qb3 62.Qxb3 Rxb3+ 63.Kh4 (the nice Bd4 covers b6 and b2).

59.Kh3 h6 60.Re6 works also (i.e. 60...Qf8 61.Rxh6+ Kg8 62.Qe6 Rf7 63.Rg6)

59.Kh3 Qf8 60.f6

  Billy Ray Valentine: THanks for the responses... Karpov's pieces seem to coordinate really well at the end. But then again, he seemed to be good at that...

An understatement to be sure!
