Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-09  Reti or Knot: The great Karpov works his positional magic and manufactures a nice position by move 50, winning the exchange and having two passed center pawns.
Sep-05-11  Everett: I remember reading Kasparov's analysis of this game in OMGP and thinking that - even with all his computers - he didn't quite get his head around it. Perhaps because there is so much unforced play in this one, it could have gone so many ways.
Mar-22-14  DiscoJew: Nice game, loved the king march at the end ftw!
Mar-23-14  SpiritedReposte: Isolated queen pawn? No prob says Karpov.
May-30-19  Nerwal: In Excelling at positional chess Aagard wrote at length how 25. h4 is premature and the manoeuver of the game has to be prefered. 20 years later 25. h4 turns out to be the engine's first choice. Another case of annotating by final result in a very complicated position where the truth is far from clear.
Oct-03-20  fisayo123: Karpov pretty much plays all the top lines of Stockfish as he systematically demolishes one of the best players of that generation in Gelfand. Never mind that Karpov here is already 44 years old.
