|Apr-15-05|| ||hintza: Will the "real Karpov" please stand up... |

|Apr-15-05|| ||WMD: Karpov did have a son in the 1970s with a rather statuesque and formidable looking blonde. I don't think his name was Alexander though. |
|Apr-16-05|| ||Karpova: He is not Karpov's son.

|Jun-20-05|| ||Fritzin: So Alexander Karpov of 'Think Like a GM' is not the father to Anatoly Karpov who Fischer was afraid of losing to?|
|Jun-20-05|| ||maoam: <Fritzin>
The author of "Think Like a Grandmaster" was actually Alexander Kotov. Your question is unanswerable anyway, as you assume that Fischer was afraid of losing to Karpov and there is no proof of that.
|Oct-29-06|| ||Brown: There is some belief that Fischer was "afraid" to lose at anyone (not Karpov particularly), so "scared" that he nearly never lost when he played, and gave no one the chance to beat him after he became champ.|
Some belief, of course...
|Oct-29-06|| ||shr0pshire: From the Cap D'Agde 2006 tournament it says that Alexander Karpov's rating is 2650+. Seems to be a little different than the 2350+ which chessgames says is his highest rating.|

<Karpov's son> I do wonder about Karpov's family, have not been able to find information. Is he married? Children?
