  HeMateMe: pure Karpov. get the better Rooks in the endgame, fix black's pawn problems on the kingside, then push a passed pawn. Steady as she goes.
Feb-06-18  Ulhumbrus: One meaning of the capture 13 dxc5 may be that following the exchange of queens Karpov is able to play the manoeuvre 15 Rb1 followed by 16 Rb5 and then after 16...c4 the penetration 18 Rc5. This suggests that if White had not had this resource Karpov might not have made the choice of 13 dxc5.
Feb-08-18  nopassion4jazz: i think its dangerous if you play karpov and doing a few swinddles
Feb-18-18  PJs Studio: Karpov - still got what it takes to take out a top 50 player in the world. Further proof ex-world champions continue to be beasts way past their prime.

  pawnpro: Crazy how he is still the best
Apr-05-18  RookFile: It looks like vintage Karpov, from one of his games in the first match with Kasparov where he gave the challenger fits in the endgame.
Apr-06-18  WorstPlayerEver: 15... Rb8 =
