  kevin86: of course,white can exchange queens at f2,but black would have the opposition and despite being a pawn down,the draw is certain.
Nov-29-07  talisman: 35.Qf4 for white!?
Mar-19-08  positionalgenius: A masterful game- enjoyable to watch
Jun-30-09  Knight13: <talisman: 35.Qf4 for white!?> 35... Qc5+ 36. Kg1 (Qf2 Bd4 and White's queen gets screwed over) Bf6. Good for Black.
Feb-07-10  nelech: "A grandiose battle " Kasparov
Jun-25-13  csmath: One of the most brilliant draws in the history of WC matches. This game exemplifies both Karpov and Kasparov in their styles. Active defence Kasparov undertook in the game not only saved him but also allowed him to have energy for the play. At this point Seville Exchange was not yet exhausted because of the impression of this brilliant game.
Apr-20-15  Howard: Kasparov claims that Karpov had good winning chances in this game.

But where ?!

Jan-30-16  Howard: To repeat....where ?

  Finnishplayer: Karpov claims that 35.Qf4! and 37.Rf3! would have won.

Kasparov writes in "On Modern Chess Part 3" that neither of these attempts win. He writes that 33.Qf4! would have probably won and 37. Re1! would have given better winning chances than the game continuation.
