Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-08-15  Volmac: Why did Karpov play the Sicilian, especially against an opponent that has researched the opening his whole life? Maybe it was an accident, he meant to move the c-pawn one square but dropped it on the square beyond the intended one. With that said, I hope to see the Scotch opening played by these two in future games.
Jul-08-15  Howard: Too bad Karpov doesn't play classical chess anymore (or at least very rarely). But, then at 64 it's probably time for him to retire.

  whiteshark: <thegoodanarchist: Did Karpov lose this game on time?> Yes! I think he had already overstepped time when he played 29...Ke8 (starts around 55mins)
Jul-08-15  MNW: Coming from someone who only knows two or three openings, two of which are the Scotch Gambit and the Sicilian Najdorf, I would love to see how the pros play it. Unfortunately, seeing a scotch game much less a scotch gambit is so rare at top level play these days.

  HeMateMe: hmm....not the first time Karpov has overstepped the time limit. I wonder if white has a winning endgame after an exchange of pieces on the queenside?
