Apr-14-05  Karpova: very instructive game!

12...bg4 (nh4 now or on the next move was better)

14...bg5? black commits a mistake after white's excellent move.

15.h3! this is the point! 15...bf4: fails due to 16.ef and the bg4 gets trapped (see move 12).

19.na4! an excellent move. it's obvious that black's queenside is pretty weak.

20....ne6? black would still have drawing chances after 20....a5 or 20...bd8

23.b4!! great play by rubinstein! (23...bc7 24.bc7: nc7: 25.nc5 nc5: 26.bc and white wins by attacking on the b-file)

24.nb2! rubinstein plays the endgame in admirable style.

35.g4! since black is tied up on the queenside, white begins to play on the kingside - decisive!

38...gf (38...g5 39.nc4!)

this game should be studied very carefully!

Jul-23-07  Karpova: 52...Rb8 53.Rg7 threatening 54.Rxd8 and 55.Rb7# or 55.Nd7+ and winning the exchange

  plang: With 9 cxd..exd the game transposed to an exchange variation where the pawn on a6 created dark squares on the queenside. 13..Nh5 would have been a better way of exchanging dark square bishops. Gelfand was critical of 21..Ra7?! as being too passive recommending 21..b5 22 Nc5 (22 Nc3..c5! with counterplay) 22..N3xc5 23 dxc..d4 24 b4..dxe 25 fxe..Rac8 with a slight edge for White. 27..Nd8? was way too passive; 27..f4 which Black had been carefully preparing was much more logical and active: after 28 Nc5..Nexc5 29 dxc..Bxa5 30 bxa..fxe 31 Rce2! White would have been better but at least Black would have had some counterplay. A clever combination would have occurred in the line 37..f4 38 Rh1..fxe 39 fxe..gxh 40 Rxh4..Ng5+ 41 Ke2..Re7 42 Kd3..Ne4 43 Rh8+..Kc7 44 Ra8!. 40..f4? was a mistake which would have lost immediately had White responded 41 Nc4; this only delayed the final result a few moves.
