Oct-21-02  skakmiv: 7..Be3? Too passive??
Oct-21-02  Danilomagalhaes: Most of the times and in a lot of games the chess players think itīs better a Bishop on e7, like in the case of the Ruy Lopez Closed, but white wanted to grow fast, and made this move, that in my opinion, is the best place for the bishop in this position. Maybe there are better moves now, but I donīt have time to study the position.
Jul-28-04  chess4games: White lost his bishop. Black will queen soon enough. Good game.
Apr-03-05  Boomie: White missed a simple win with 32. ♗xg6.

  Ron: <Boomie> It seems that 32. Bxg6 is the move to be played. If Karpov takes fxg6 then it might go: Qf8+ Kh7 Rf7+ Bxf7 Qxf7 Kh8 Qf6+ Kh7 Qxg6 Kh8 Qg7++

If Karpov instead moves to Kf8 the it might go Bxf7 Rh1+ Kxh1 Bc6+ e4 Qxf4 Rxf4 Bxe4 Kg1 Ke7...

Karpov was around ten years old when this game was played.

Dec-18-06  MrPatzer: Does anyone think 28. Qxb7 might have been a serious mistake? White was putting a lot of pressure on Karpov's king when that queen suddenly goes pawn snatching, and White soon loses two kingside pawns.
Feb-13-11  Gawk: Karpov was 10, and Timoshchenko was 12.
