Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-05  Karpova: A very instructive game demonstrating karpov's prophylactic playing style.

karpov seems to start action in the centre but just comes up with prophylactic moves until ricardi cannot stand the pressure anymore and feels he has to become active.

25...b5? is the outcome. it's nice to see that karpov immediately brings his pieces up to the queen's wing where black created a weakness (c5) and exploits it.

of course not 34...qh2:?? rh1 and the queen is trapped.

Mar-12-05  whiskeyrebel: towards the end of the game blacks pieces are placed on such hideously bad squares. It's a fun game to study. Karpov calmly played as if he had all the time in the world.
Mar-12-05  Karpova: especially the black queen is totally out of play.

karpov forsees all of ricardi's active plan and prevents them. he makes ricardi look like an amateur!

May-22-16  1971: Karpov was the best at ruthless positional play.
