Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-05-04  Lawrence: After 32.c5 Karpov says "Blacks are in total Zugzwang."

35...cxd5
36.Qxd5+ Ke8
37.Qe6+ Qe7
38.Qxe7#

Aug-04-07  ganstaman: In the August 2003 Chess Life, Susan Polgar said that 10...Bd7 was too slow and peaceful. An improvement is Miles vs Kramnik, 1989 , which used 10...Rd8. Don't let the results there confuse you, Polgar said 17...Bg4 was to blame as that 17...Qc8 with 17...Qa6 would improve.
Aug-10-07  babakova: A nice and clean victory by Karpov.
Aug-17-07  MarkThornton: This is a really nice game by Karpov.
Aug-17-07  MarkThornton: though possibly Black helped Karpov by being fairly passive. 8...Ne4 would have been more active, for better or worse.

  keypusher: Very impressive game, pretty finale. Classic Karpov!
Apr-29-09  returnoftheking: This is Malaniuks only loss with the leningrad in the 10 games in this database. Strong Gm's like Portisch, Tukmakov and van der Sterren all failed to win with white but Karpov does it.

  xombie: The position after 7. Qe8 occurred in one of my own games, but I unfortunately lost the thread, instead playing 8. b3 I went in for the dubious R for two minor pieces sac with Ng5. Karpov is proof that one can win just by restriction. Attack is unnecessary!

  xombie: I am also very impressed with the quiet Re2, which defends the square f2 and makes way for the other rook on e1.
Jun-23-11  DiscoJew: Klean Karpov the whole way through. Wish Malaniuk would have tried to establish c6/c5 or e5 break earlier.
Sep-17-11  libertyjack: <xombie> I find this games is very much an attacking game, only active moves all the way trough. First with Ba3, then preparing the e4 break, then occupying the e-file, then exploiting the weak darksquares. It's a wonderful game by a chess genius
Sep-21-11  libertyjack: ps: I exagerated a bit, it is true that restriction is a crucial part of this game.
Jan-10-16  Doodloper: Sorry returnoftheking?! Van der Sterren a strong GM??? Hahahaha, nice joke!!! :))

Van der Sterren barely had IM-level, he had some luck to get the GM-title...

Perhaps a bit more luck than that: he managed to become a candidate once as well.

Aug-17-17  Tietie007: Nice game.
Aug-17-17  Troller: I play the Leningrad as well, also the 7..Qe8 line. From what I remember, 8.b3 is best met by simply ..h6 (h6 and g5 are moves you can typically play when nothing else is going on in the Leningrad).

8..Na6 is also a topical move, but as so often happens, the N ends up being offside here. If White gets in the e2-e4 break without Black having some activity, then Black is usually in trouble on the e-file. Of course, it was never easy to play Black against Karpov in the first place back then.
