Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-03  Benjamin Lau: Karpov punishes Fritz in the endgame for arrogantly playing the highly ominous but unclear 32...Rxa4?!. The exchange sac is interesting, but doesn't look like a good idea. Fritz may have won the resulting tricky endgame against most players, but not Karpov.

  SpaceRunner: 52: Ba4 and black gets in ZUGZWANG - any move will worsen his position.. In this case pawn c5 will fall. Later the other pawns will fall and white will queen.

A big mistake is 27.- R b5 (instead Ra5) after the exchange of queens white has the better endgame due to blacks 3 pawn-islands.. The endgame is easy won for a GM..
