Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-14  Karpova: Annotations (condensed)

2...Nf6 <2...c5 is the most common move.>

4...Be7 <With c4 and Nc3, White could now go for the worked out variations of the Queen's Gambit. Fortunately, he chooses less known paths.>

7.c3 <White allows the opponent to play the Queen's Gambit.>

7...b6 <Looks weak, but White can hardly gain anything from it.>

10.f4 <Interesting would be 10.Nc6 Qe8 11.Nxe7+ Qxe7 12.Bxd7 Qxd7 13.Bxf6, but Black plays (10...Bxc6 11.Bxc6 Rc8 12.Bb7 Rc7 13.Ba6 Nb8 14.Bb5 a6 and has a good position.>

12.Bxe7 <Or 12.Nxe4 dxe4 13.Bf4 cxd4 14.cxd4 Bb4+ which is advantageous to Black.>

14...f5 <Chances are about equal now.>

16.Bc4 <It's important for White to threat the only Black weakness, e6.>

18...f5 <Black improves his position and soon, White will face hard times.>

19...Rg8 <If now 20.Rh4 Rg5 21.Qh6 Rag8, which is bad for White due to the threats Rxg2 and R8g6.>

22...R5g6 <Preparation of evil traps.>

23...R8g7 <Now threatens Qb4 or Qc7! and the ♗c4 is lost (Rxg3+). Also bad would be 24.Rh6 because of Qg5 etc.. White now regroups his pieces.>

24.Rff4 <!>

25.Qf1 <! Covers everything. Dr. Kaufmann correctly avoided 25...Qxb2 as the consequences of Bxe6! appeared to him dissatisfying: a) 26...Qd2 27.Bxf5 Qxe3+ 28.Qf2 Qc1+ 29.Qf1 Qe3+ and so on; b) 26...Rxe6 27.Rxf5 Qb4 28.Rf8+ Rg8 29.Rxh7+ (not 29.Qf7 Qxe3+ followed by Qf3+) 29...Kxh7 30.Qf7+ Rg7 31.Qh5+ Rh6 32.Qf5+ draw>

27...Rc7 <Here most spectators thought that White was lost. White has missplaced most of his pieces and Black intrudes. Only best defense can save White.>

28.Rf2 <Or 28.Bd1 Rc1 29.Rf1 Bd5 30.Bb3 (30.b3 Ra1 31.a4 Rb1 etc.) 30...Rxf1+ 31.Kxf1 Bxb3 32.axb3 and the White position doesn't look inviting. Even stronger for Black appears 28.Bd1 Bd5 29.a3 Rc1 30.Rf1 Rg7 followed by Rgc7 probably winning (Georg Marco: Worst of all for White would be 28.Bd1 Rc1 29.Rf1 Rb1!).>

31...Kg7 <Dissatisfying for Black would be 31...Re1 32.Rc2! (not 32.Re2 Rxe2 33.Bxe2 Rc8 etc.) 32...Rxe3 Rc7. A nice trap would have been 31...Rgc8 32.Bg6 Kg7! (33.Bxh7 Rh8!) but Dr. Kaufmann reflecting over it for a long time concluded that 31...Rgc8 would allow White to complicate matters considerably by g4.>

35...Rxf1 <Or 35...Rxe2+ 36.Rxe2 Rxf1 37.Kxf1 Bc4 38.b3 Bxe2+ 39.Kxe2 and White has a safe draw.>

39.g4 <!>

39...Ke7 <Black would have no winning chances after fxg4, yet g5 followed by h4 is threatened now.>

44.Kg3 <! Very preventive as will soon be seen. Bad was 44.h4 followed by g5+, as the White ♔ and ♗ would be pinned.>

46...b4 <46...a4 leads nowhere as Bb3 can always be met with Be2.>

50.Kg2 <Bad was 50.Kf4 b3! (threatening Rc2 and annihilation) 51.Bxb3 Rf1+ 52.Kg3 Rf3+ and Black has two connected passed pawns.>

52...Rg6 <! A last trap. If now 53.Rg2 f4! 54.Rxg6+ Kxg6 55.exf4 e3 and wins.>

53.Bh5 <! If now 53...Rg7 54.Rg2 and Black has to trade as 54...f4 55.Rxg7 Kxg7 56.exf4 e3 57.Kg3 e2 58.Kf2 would be bad for Black now. The game was declared drawn.>
