Jan-11-06  foolishmovesss: Nxd5+ Beautiful. I love looking at Karpovs games. Good attack here on the queenside. I think exchange is the best way to play against the French. Must be stylistically uncomfortable for most French players. Any thoughts?


Jan-18-06  shamekovich: Anatoly: "A bishop in the center
points in two directions!"

Botvinnik: "Hmmm...In this case you
are correct, young boy".

Mar-26-09  Thickasabrick31: What was the point of 24. ... Qf4 ? And why retreat back c7 after that? Why not play 26. Ref8 or something that will open up white's king to attack. Yes, white has a strong mate in two threat but, black can make some mate in one threats that will open up white's kingside a little. That might have given black a better chance.
Feb-03-21  MrJafari: <@Thickasabrick31>: long time past but I think it's an attack against white's King.
