Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-08  vikinx: No kibitzing. Little surprised.
Jun-29-09  Knight13: I would go on with 44. Kf5 here. Pawns on both side. White's bishop is better. White's position is better. Worth trying.

  GrahamClayton: Kasparov's comments in "Ultimate Challenge":

" game ten Karpov's imprecise play in a slightly worse endgame have me a good chance of victory. However, after gliding through the fortieth move, the time control move, I immediately made an error which enabled Black to mount a defence.

Although I had no clear way to win, declining to resume the game after the adjournment was an unforgivable psychological concession on my part. In the first place, he would still have had to display a certain precision, and secondly, after that heavy defence, Karpov would have had great difficulty in switching to active play."

Sep-05-11  DrMAL: Kasparov regretfully admitted failing to follow Botvinnik's advice upon adjournment (again, he do so a few times in his prior matches with Karpov, always messing up): SEAL THE MOVE! 41.Ke4?! went from advantage to disadvantage for him.
Jun-14-13  kasparvez: After move 35 the position reminds one of the famous Fischer-Taimanov game. It has all the potentials to earn white a brilliancy prize. But Karpov keeps his pawns on the dark squares here, and Kasparov fails to set him any problems. His subsequent play is uncertain and confused. Wonder what Fischer would've said!
Jun-14-13  RookFile: He would have said that Kasparov was not as strong as an endgame player as he was. And Fischer would have been right.
