  perfidious: A display of iron technique by the former world titleholder in a line which arises from the Symmetrical English by transposition and has scored poorly for Black.

  ChessHigherCat: Why didn't Karpov play 26. Rxa7, which wins a pawn and prevents Qh6? Was Karpov just worried about black challenging the file with 26...Rd8 or is there something better?
Mar-26-17  cunctatorg: Anatoly Karpov's chess glorifies the game.
