May-30-06  paladin at large: Interesting how Klovans allows his rook to be suffocated. I wonder how long in advance Karpov saw this possibility.
Jun-18-09  Pravitel: Karpov very nicely imprisons the rook to the death row. Quite enjoyable finish.
Jul-25-09  totololo: The main theme was good knight vs bad bishop ... All whihte play is to limot bishop activity and maximize knight activity.

The blunder 37....c5 is answered with rook put in prison....

Jun-11-12  screwdriver: Ok, black's rook is "in prison" as mentioned by 2 aforementioned posters. But you still have to capture it. I guess the plan is to move white's king to f3, then move the knight to b2=>d1=>e3. As long as the white knight can get to e3 or g3 before the black rook breaks out of "prison", white should win.
Apr-17-14  tranquilsimplicity: Karpov unleashes his trademark "suffocation" style!! #
Apr-17-14  Eusebius: With the king on f3 the white rook can maneuver freely to the g-file. The knight stays as a guard. With white king on e4 black is captured. Either losing the rook or white is going to loot blacks queen side. Hopeless.
Apr-21-14  tranquilsimplicity: Indeed!#
