|Mar-22-05|| ||Gowe: I think Karpov made a great combination positional and offensive changing a pawn for a queen and a decisive attack. In my analisis Fritz 8 gives after exd3 +(3.12) enough advantage for karpov. I read an article that he lose on time. Here is some analisis.
16.Bf5 Qe6 17.Rxc7 <and if dxe2 clearly the best then white win easily.>
Great game by karpov, but he has to think faster the next time. |
|Mar-22-05|| ||hintza: <Gowe> So you are saying Karpov meant to sacrifice the queen? I really doubt that, Black just looks much better to me even in the analysis you give. |
|May-14-05|| ||Orbitkind: What happened? It's hard to believe that this actually happenend.|
|Sep-13-05|| ||Palma Vest: <Gowe> Are you sure? it's so doubtful that i tested the line on Fritz. After exd3+, Fritz gives -7.56. Karpov lost anyhow.|
|Sep-13-05|| ||RookFile: It was a blindfold game. Karpov certainly didn't mean to sac his queeen, lol.|
|Sep-13-05|| ||you vs yourself: <Gowe> Nice analysis! As you said, I think it's more plausible that Karpov lost on time esp. considering the game had already lasted 13 moves.|
|Nov-27-05|| ||Chopin: It's good to know that this game was blindfold. I doubt Karpov will make such a huge blunder during a game.|
|Dec-26-05|| ||MarkN: I agree with <Gowe>, this is a crushing sacrifice that Sadler blindly fell into. The score is obviously wrong. It was Sadler who resigned! |
|Feb-27-06|| ||MorphyMatt: Christiansen vs Karpov, 1993|

|Nov-27-06|| ||Marmot PFL: Even blindfold its hard to believe Karpov could forget where he put his queen...Maybe it was blindfold simul.|
|Aug-05-08|| ||johnsbrother: Can someone please explain to me how blindfold games work, in particular simultaneous blindfold games? Can the players write the moves down? Thanks|
|Sep-04-08|| ||TheTamale: <johnsbrother: "Can the players write the moves down?"> Not 100% sure, but think not. I think that's part of the prestige in holding the record--being able to keep track of that much in your head at once.|
|Oct-07-08|| ||whiteshark: This game has been played at 7th Amber Chess Tournament in round 9.|
The headline in the tournament book for this round was <Where is Tolya's Queen?>
|Oct-07-08|| ||Everett: Relax, everyone. We all make mistakes.|
|Jan-20-09|| ||WhiteRook48: wow!! why Rxf7??|
|May-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: yeah <Everyone>|
|Oct-10-09|| ||Cercatore: Sad mistake...|
|Mar-07-11|| ||Penguincw: After the ♙ is taken,white will have three ♙s for a ♕.|
|Apr-29-12|| ||lost in space: I thought Karpow was drunk - as sometimes Aljechin was (at least it is said). But it is just a blindfold game. So no worries - Karpow don't need a withdrawal treatment|
|Apr-29-12|| ||lost in space: ...but I have to say that the complete white game is strange|
Nh4, f3 and later f4; this together with a d4- and a e2- pawn in combination with lack of development. Whites position after move 9 is ugly, nearly painful.
|Dec-05-12|| ||solskytz: Fine judgment by the champion! Keeping the queen makes no sense in this particular position. He resigned because he had something in his eye right thereafter and the opponent wouldn't take a draw. |
This said, I loved the idea ...g5 in order to be able to profitably push e5... No 1300 player would come upon that!
Not only pushing ...g5 and sacrificing the pawn, but also keeping it there later rather than capturing on f4. Definitely not 1300 play, by any stretch.
|Dec-05-12|| ||solskytz: <Why Rxf7??>
To paraphrase Nimzowitsch - look what a bargain, two pawns and the seventh rank and all this for just a queen? Of course no further calculation is necessary, the move should be played on general principles only!
(the original comment comes from a really exquisite game, appearing in "My System", where he beats Samisch, I think in 26 moves, with an amazing middle-game zugzwang, arrived at through a sacrifice of a piece, not a queen, for the compensation noted above)
|Mar-23-13|| ||hudapri: What a blow, the 7th rank crumbled instantly! Amazing positional sacrifice, Mr. Sadler abdicated rather than suffer this.|
