Feb-01-06  hayton3: Quite apart from all the Karpovian maneuvering, the finish starting with 58.Bxg6 is delightfully satanic.

Why I am not a grandmaster, Part MCLV: here I was wondering why Karpov didn't play 60.Bg8+ "winning" the queen.

I read somewhere once that retreating bishop moves are notoriously hard to spot. I have fallen prey to these oversights, and I've seen them happen to others, especially in blitz.
