|Jun-22-05|| ||ArturoRivera: how could a GM, former world champion not see a ONE move combination (after Qxd3)????|
|Jun-22-05|| ||jahhaj: I'd guess that he calculated something like 26... d7 24.xc7 xd3 so he already had it in mind that he was going to play xd3 he just played it on the wrong move.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||who: your move order also loses. 26.Qd7 27.Rxc7 Qxd3 28.Qxd3 Rxd3 29.Rc8+ and black gets mated.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||jackmandoo: I know as a self proclaimed GM that I sometimes miss these combos myself. Oh and <who>, You should note that you found those moves noted above with Fritz. Unless you found them yourself.|
|Apr-21-06|| ||Chess Classics: <jackmandoo> LOL! You're killing me.|
25...xd3?? is a howler.
|Jun-01-06|| ||orio24: <who: your move order also loses. 26.Qd7 27.Rxc7 Qxd3 28.Qxd3 Rxd3 29.Rc8+ and black gets mated.>|
It doesn't. After 29.c8+ there is 29...d8.
|Dec-30-06|| ||notyetagm: 25 ... xd3?? is the best example I have ever seen at the professional level of the well-known fact that it is tactically dangerous to have your queen in front of your rook on an open file. You are just begging for a <SKEWER> or the <FORK-OVERLOAD TRICK>. |
Here it is the <SKEWER> 26 c2-d2 which wins on the spot for White.
|Dec-30-06|| ||notyetagm: <Jim Bartle: I remember commentators just couldn't believe Karpov took the poisoned pawn with 26....Qxd3. A horrible blunder: he has to give his queen for a rook or get mated.>|
Wow, they must have been in shock, just like we were a few weeks ago when Kramnik played 34 ... e3???.
|Jan-09-08|| ||TigerG: World champion blundering his queen is just funny in my mind.|
|Dec-06-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Maybe Karpov wanted to lose...
|Dec-22-08|| ||WhiteRook48: ...Qxd3???? What kind of thing is happening to Karpov?|
|Dec-23-08|| ||WhiteRook48: It seems like Rd2 waves a rook in the queen's face.|
|Dec-24-08|| ||WhiteRook48: Hey d3-Queen, here's a free Rook!
Queen: "Sure, I'll take this dumb rook if you stick it in my face"
Then bishop snaps off queen.
Short: "Ha ha ha ha ha! I fooled the black queen!"
|Dec-24-08|| ||notyetagm: <WhiteRook48: ...Qxd3???? What kind of thing is happening to Karpov?>|
|Jan-30-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Looking at this game again reminds how things have changed since 1992. |
Back then I didn't even know any results from the match until two weeks later when my "Inside Chess" would arrive. Now dozens of kibitzers would be screaming "patzer!" the moment Karpov played Qxd3.
I miss "Inside Chess," but today is better (despite the presence of a few kibitzers not to be named).
|Jan-30-09|| ||slomarko: you are right. i hate them too.|
|Jan-30-09|| ||Jim Bartle: I've got to give it to you on that one, slomarko. Though I didn't say "hate."|
|Jan-31-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Karpov played like a patzer, but not in other games|
|Sep-29-09|| ||heizfeld: All in all not just a gem of chess history. i found this game too plain, not GM-like. probably not Karpov in good shape. @#$% happens, even to the best, right?|
|Dec-24-09|| ||shreyaslathi: Hello !!!! ppl new up here but thng is tht i thnk for namesake karpov avoided another title battle with kasparov wch in mnd he already lost.TO be kaspy scapegoat again he preffered loss to short shocking but not humiliating. well i dnt knw wht actual conditions tht time. this is just insight ppl if u thnk otherwise do post reply. well after fisher kasparov & karpov no other GM can stand their heights !!!!!!!!|
|Dec-24-09|| ||Jim Bartle: If (and that's a huge if) he wanted to avoid playing Kasparov again, he still could have won this match and then lost to Timman. This was not the final.|
|Feb-11-11|| ||Millz: 25.Qxd3?? 1st time a see Karpov makes such a huge blunder.|
|Feb-11-11|| ||AnalyzeThis: In the final position, Karpov agonized over that little pawn on a3. Remove both those pawns and Karpov can just swap a couple of times on d2 and set up a likely drawing fortress of rook and pawns against queen. Put the pawn on a3 and now white has a way of making another queen.|
|Nov-23-11|| ||Peter Nemenyi: A disproportionate number of gross blunders by professionals seem to involve backward moves of the opponent's pieces, and Karpov's failure to see that White's bishop commands d2 is a good example.|
|Jan-22-12|| ||notyetagm: Game Collection: ROOK MIDDLEGAME SKEWER|
