Oct-13-04  percyblakeney: 54.Qe7+ is one of Karpov's worst moves, if I recall correctly he was in time trouble, and first played the illegal Qe6+.
Jun-28-08  Laboratory: Karpov didn't see the opponent was delivering check. So he tried to move his queen, but.. So he lost the game.

White had just promoted a pawn to a queen on the e8 square. Black made the discovered check <53...Kd6+>. Karpov, with very little time remaining, did not see that he was in check and played the illegal move <54.Qe6+ <<>>>. The arbiter required Karpov to play a legal move with his queen instead (since he touched it), and he selected <54.Qe7+??> (54.Qd7+ Rxd7+ 55.Kg6 would still have drawn (Fox & James 1993:198))."

After <54...Rxe7+>, Karpov lost the game (McDonald 2002:22425).
