  offramp: "After the opening, Karpov got a nice long-term advantage: more space, two Bishops. Then he and Smyslov started marking time, moving pieces to and fro without anything of importance happening. Then something very unusual was noticed. Karpov had left the board, the playing hall and, as it turned out, even the building. He kept away for about three quarters of an hour. Later one of the organisers divulged that he had accompanied Karpov to a bank office to settle some pressing financial matters. At the time Karpov came back to his game, Romanishin was a good Pawn up against Spassky. After that in Karpov-Smyslov some real chess moves had to be played and Smyslov quickly collapsed."
