Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-05  Mating Net: This has to be one of the most exciting draws I've seen. White attacks vigorously on the Q side and Black counter attacks on the K side and almost wins. Non stop action between 2 heavyweights.
Feb-24-12  ColdSong: After a close look to this game,as a lot of Mr Karpov,I'll be formal.Mr Karpov is a world expert on proving that the a7 pawn is weak.After I found the best way to make progress to this game,which essentially consists in consider the thematic question:"What would Vladimir Putin play in this position ?" I now can give an answer to this crucial question: "What did Anatoli Karpov look on the chessboard ?". The a7 pawn.Oh,one more thing.The lad enjoy to find some strange and funny squares for his queen.Hope all this will be useful for the beginners.
Jun-19-12  Jim Bartle: 28...Bd7 seems to change black from defending desperately to going on the attack. Then it looked as if Ivanchuk was breaking through with 43...f4, but Karpov saves the draw.
