|Apr-05-05|| ||RookFile: Shows you how strong Karpov is in the endgame. Set up the position after the 16th move, and at first glance, black has little to fear. A few pulverizing moves later, you realize that black's pawn are vulnerable. |
|Apr-05-05|| ||schnarre: Very nice pairing up of White's Knight & Rook on the Queenside! |
|Apr-06-05|| ||paladin at large: <RookFile>Thanks for pointing that out - what an instructive endgame! At 12.0-0-0 (if not sooner) and with the queens off the board, Karpov must have known he would have the better king in the endgame, being able to deny entry to Black on the b and d files. He must have been very confident at an early stage as he played it out. |
|Apr-07-05|| ||Lanceter: Would 19... Rd7 help black's cause? |
|Apr-09-05|| ||schnarre: <Lanceter> That's certainly a decent move to try; indeed it could help Black to possibly draw the game. |
|Apr-09-05|| ||aw1988: After 19...Rd7, white wins by 20. Rb5. |
|Apr-09-05|| ||schnarre: <aw1988> Hmmmnnn, yes the advanced Rook gives White considerable Queenside muscle: what do you see as a possible continuation after 20. Rb5? |
|Apr-09-05|| ||aw1988: Your pawn is unprotected. c4 Rc5. |
|Apr-11-05|| ||schnarre: Nice! |
|Jan-06-06|| ||blingice: <larrewl> Why would you put a Polgar loss in a collection about her?|
|Jan-06-06|| ||larrewl: <blingice> I wanted to include a good game (albeit a loss) against Karpov, arguably one of the best endgamers ever.|
|Jan-07-06|| ||perfidious: While I haven't played through many of Susan's games, the one time I remember her playing the 5.h3 line was when she squashed me with the White side in 1992.|
<Lanceter> I don't believe 19....Rd7
helps Black here; 20.Rb5 c4 21.Rc5 leaves her in difficulties over the weakened c-pawn.
|Jan-12-06|| ||schnarre: <perifdious> When/where was that?|
|Aug-15-07|| ||chessamateur: God I wish I could play endgames like Karpov.|
|Mar-09-11|| ||perfidious: <schnarre> The first round of a tournament in New York-I was one of the outsiders in that event at about 2250. There were 20-25 GMs and many IMs.|
|Mar-09-11|| ||HeMateMe: In this game maybe black should play 19...R-d7 instead of c5, keep the 7th rank defended. This seems to be the beginning of her problems. |
With white castled Queenside, Karpov can defend his own pawns in the area, Polgar can't defend both the b file and the d file, and white wins on either file he penetrates, if Polgar can't guard the pawn on a7.
