Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-05  Karpova: Let's see what Capa has to say about this game:

7...ndb6 illogical since the nf6 is already ready to go to d5. the nb6 hampers the development of the bc8

12...c6 this move proves that Capa was right. the bd7 is now completely blocked but white was threatening 13.nd5: nd5: 14.e4 and rc7: black should have traded on c3. white is ready to put his knights on e5/c5

13..f5 suicide. black creates a hole on e5

15...rab8 would make sense if black intended nd7 but since he doesn't play nd7 he should have done better playing rac8

23...ne3 better would have been 23...nf6 with the intention of nd7


29...nb6 the knight remained useless throughout the whole game.

33...qf8 (33..hg 34.kf2 and white wins easily)
