Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-06  aragorn69: This is clearly a turn-of-the-tide kind of game. Karpov was leading the match, easily winning with White and drawing with Black in the first two games. And then here, with White, he gets outplayed in the transition opening-middle game, and barely (and luckily it would seem) saves an acrobatic endgame. As often in match play, this would have an impact on the very next game.
Dec-18-06  aragorn69: BTW where (75.-Rd7?)did Short blow the win? Could someone with access to Rowson's book (<cu8sfan> are u there, mein Schweizer Freund?) give a summary of his analysis??
Apr-10-09  Dredge Rivers: I'll have a Beck's Beer, please!
Dec-26-09  Morphystyle: In Rowson's book, he says "Short's notes in Informator just gives 44...c4! 45 bxc4 bxc4 46 Na4 Rd3 and black is winning" in not Na4 ...c3 wins the knight.
Nov-27-17  Poisonpawns: Nigel missed several wins due to faulty technique in this game. At move 81. It is already table base draw. 70..Rb7! is one of several moves that work instead of kd4
Nov-27-17  Howard: Inside Chess made the remark back in 1992 that when the game was resumed, in the second session, it quickly became clear that Short's seconds, Kavalek and Stean, had not done their homework very well, as far as analyzing the adjourned position. Karpov was putting up much stiffer resistance than they'd anticipated.
