Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-04  rndapology: The queen is trapped, apparently Rb3 was moved with this particular outcome in mind...excellent play by Karpov, squirrely play by Romanishin
Apr-28-11  Everett: Karpov is always playing to restrict pieces. Remarkable that he takes this strategy and wins with it so many times.

Karpov's games usually have two storylines:
1) Karpov sacrifices the initiative to ensure positional harmony, eventually rebuffs the initiative or outright attack, and then pounces on the holes his opponent left in his position.

2) Karpov's opponent does not take risks and tries to resist Karpov's steady pressure but eventually gets squeezed to death, either by crumbling under the pressure and blundering or being ground down in the endgame.

This is option number 1

  shalgo: Rb3 is a great move!

Still, 29...Bb5! would have avoided the worst for Black. Even 31...Rxb3 would have been better than the game continuation, even though after 32.Qxb3 Qxg5 33.Qb8 Qe7 34.Qc8 Black is completely tied up.
