FIDE player card for Anatoly Karpov

(born May-23-1951, 66 years old) Russia
[what is this?]

Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov was born in the town of Zlatoust, located in the Southern Ural Mountains in the USSR. He learned to play chess at four years old and became a candidate master by age eleven. At twelve, Karpov was accepted into the chess academy presided over by Mikhail Botvinnik. Karpov won the World Junior Championship in 1969, thereby automatically gaining the title of International Master. In 1970, he became an International Grandmaster by virtue of finishing equal fourth at Caracas. A World Championship Candidate in 1973, he defeated Viktor Korchnoi in the Karpov - Korchnoi Candidates Final (1974) to earn the right to contest the Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) with World Champion Robert James Fischer. When FIDE declared Fischer forfeited, Karpov became the 12th World Chess Champion, the youngest since Mikhail Tal in 1960.

Karpov defended the championship twice against Korchnoi, in Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship (1978) and Karpov - Korchnoi World Championship Rematch (1981). After Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Match (1984), which was aborted with Karpov leading by two points over Garry Kasparov, he lost his title to Kasparov in Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Match (1985). He played three more closely contested matches with Kasparov, narrowly losing Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Rematch (1986), drawing Kasparov - Karpov World Championship Match (1987) and again narrowly losing Kasparov - Karpov World Championship Match (1990).

Karpov was thrice Soviet Champion: in 1976*, 1983** and 1988***, on the latter occasion sharing the title with Kasparov. In 1993 Karpov regained the FIDE title against Jan Timman in Karpov - Timman FIDE World Championship (1993), after Kasparov had broken away from the organization. He successfully defended his title against Gata Kamsky in Karpov - Kamsky FIDE World Championship (1996) and Viswanathan Anand in Karpov - Anand World Championship Match (1998). In 1999 FIDE changed the rules, deciding that the World Champion would be determined by an annual knockout tournament, and Karpov retired from championship competition.

At Linares (1994), Karpov achieved one of the greatest tournament successes ever, outdistancing Kasparov by 2.5 points, with a tournament performance rating of 2985.

Outside of chess, Karpov has been linked to the company Petromir, which claimed in 2007 to have found a large natural gas field.****

Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 202 OF 238 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Dec-09-11  M.D. Wilson: AnalyseThis knows more about what Kasparov and Karpov were thinking than the players themslves.

If anyone doesn't include Karpov in their top 5 list for the 20th Century, then they're kidding themslves.

He's the only player with the rightful claim of being No. 2. Only Kasparov edges him out.

Dec-09-11  IoftheHungarianTiger: Possibly ... Kaspy was gaining ground. But one bad slip and the match was over. Kasparov himself wrote that his chances of winning the match were only around 30% had the original match continued. I believe Karpov could still play excellent chess at that point in the match, and Kasparov also suggested that his late victories in the match were not a result of Karpov's fatigue, but simply that he himself had played in excellent style. I think Kasparov would have won a rematch in 1987, but I think had the match not been cancelled, Karpov would have kept his title in 1984. Of course, any opinion on the matter is just speculation, but those are some of my thoughts.
Dec-17-11  indoknight: in my opinion ,the best ENDGAME TECHNIQUE player are: 1.Anatoli Karpov 2.Jose Raul Capablanca 3.Robert James Fischer 4.Garry Kasparov 5.Vladimir Kramnik
Dec-17-11  JoergWalter: : <indoknight> where is Rubinstein? Smyslov? Korchnoi?
Dec-17-11  King Death: < swissfed: Karpov: Botvinnik thought an uneducated player couldn't become World Champion...>

I'd say that there was one great player who proved him wrong.

Dec-17-11  JoergWalter: <King Death> education doesn't necessarily correlate to the time going to school. I've seen PhD, doctors and lawyers who by common standards were "uneducated" so to say greedy, dump @#$%*@!s.
Dec-17-11  King Death: <JoergWalter> Yes, I've met a few through the years who had degrees coming out both ends but couldn't tie their shoelaces. Me, I got through high school and that was it.
Dec-17-11  indoknight: <JoergWalter> hehehe, i say in MY OPINION, endgame technique 1-5! lol

Dec-26-11  M.D. Wilson: Greatest endgame technique, in no particular order:

The Old Boys - Rubinstein/Capa/Lasker.

The New Boys -Smyslov/Fischer/Korchnoi/Karpov.

My personal favourite: Korchnoi, when on song.

Dec-26-11  indoknight: if i have a power for chose the Karpov 10 notable games, i will chose:Karpov vs Gulko, 1996 Ivanchuk vs Karpov, 1993 Timman vs Karpov, 1979 Karpov vs Huebner, 1982 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1990 Karpov vs Dorfman, 1976 Karpov vs Topalov, 1994 Karpov vs Timman, 1986 Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1984
Jan-01-12  Catfriend: I don't think the list can be somehow full without Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 - one of the best endgames of all times.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Lambda: I would certainly have to include Karpov vs Sax, 1983 and Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (17. Rfc1 just blows me away) in any such list.

  Nosnibor: Karpov first came over to England to play in the Hastings Premier in which he shared first place with Korchnoy.In January 1972 he appeared in Leicester to give a similtaneous against 28 players (+21 =7 -0).This was towards ehe celebration of the anniversary of H.E.Atkins (1872-1955) My individual game proved interesting:- White: A Karpov Black; J K Robinson, Robatsch Defence. 1e4 g6 2d4 Bg7 3Nc3 d6 4Be3 Nf6 5f3 0-0 6Qd2 Nbd7 70-0-0 e5 8Nge2 exd4 9Nxd4 Nb6 10g4 Qe7 11h4 a6 12h5 Re8 13Bh6 Qf8 14hxg6 hxg6 15Be2 Be6 16Nxe6 fxe6 17Bxg7 Qxg7 18Qe3 Rad8 19g5 Nfd7 20f4 Nc8 21Bg4 Nf8 23Ne2 c5 24Rh6 b5 25Qa3 Nb6 25Qxa6 Nc4 26c3 Ne3 27Rg1 Ra8 28Qxd6 Rxa2 29Qxc5 Ra1+ 30Kd2 Rxg1 31Nxg1 Nxg4 32Rh4 Rd8+ 33Ke2 Qd7 34Qd4 Qxd4 35cxd4 Rxd4 36Rxg4 Rxe4+ 37Kf3 Re1 38Rg2 e5 39Ne2 Nd7 40Nc3 Rf1+ 41Rf2 Rxf2+ 42Kxf2 exf4 43 Nxb5 Ne5 43b3 Nf7 44Kf3 Draw ageed

Jan-09-12  JoergWalter: nice picture.

Karpov fully dressed (with a tie) on his bed and a transistor radio playing surfing usa?

Jan-09-12  Retireborn: Ironically that position never occured in even one of Anatoly's games!

I'm guessing he's analysing this :-)
