Jun-08-13  dmvdc: From 28...Re6 on, we get to witness with rare clarity a beautiful strategic plan unfolding. Black leaves the open central file for White, planning first to transfer his bishop to d4, then to consolidate d4, and finally to exploit d4 by opening the f-file and penetrating with his heavy pieces. Masterful. Found annotated in Karpov & Matsukevich, Find the Right Plan with Anatoly Karpov (Batsford 2008).

It would be interesting to see what they have to say at move 32. In School of Chess Excellence 3 Dvoretsky pointed out that 32. ♖xd4! exd4 33. f4! followed by e5 leaves black in a position where he can hardly hope to make the advantage of the exchange felt, although I am not so sure about 33... d3(!).

Not much is the answer. ;) The book (pitched at an advanced-beginner-type level) stays pretty tightly focused on planning, so doesn't veer off into variation-land where it's not necessary for illustrating how plans are formed and executed. That said, here's what they say after 32.Kb1:

<White decides on a passive defence. Evidently the best counter-chance was the exchange sacrifice 32.Rxd4 ed 33.Rxd4.>
