Karpov played 37. Ra1! He is setting a small trap just before the time control. If Kasparov had now played
37... e3
38. fxe3 fxe3
39. Kc3 Rd8? <39...Rd2!=>
40. Ra2 Kf7
41. Re2 Ra8
42. Kb4 Re8
43. Kc4 and Whitw will win a pawn... Probably not the game, but a pawn. Anyway, Kasparov avoided all of that.
