Aug-08-09  M.D. Wilson: Rg1 falls.
Jun-21-11  ozmikey: A truly classic game by Karpov, patiently targeting Black's pawn weaknesses until a tactical decision is available in the centre. Black should probably have played ...Rg5 at some stage after move 30, but the pressure against f4 and b7 is still unpleasant.

  profK: In Hindsight 33...Rh2 is better. 33...Rg1 get the eventual fork which is a bit hard to immediately see coming.
