  wordfunph: from the book Karpov's Strategic Wins Vol. 2 1986-2010..

<Karpov's final event of the year was the Thessaloniki Olympiad, where he represented the Soviet Union on the second board. He started with a somewhat surprising draw with the white pieces against Mascarinas of the Philippines, who played well.>
