  keypusher: Karpov could have played 17.dxe5 and both the knight and the queen are hanging. But dxe5 is even stronger after 17.axb5 axb5. If 19....Qxe4 then 20.Bxf7+, of course.

In the final position White threatens g2-g4 (something Karpov could have played with profit at several points during the game). If 23....exd4 then 24.Re8+ Rxe8 25.Qxe8+ Nf8 26.Bxf7+ Kh8 27.Qxb5.

Karpov always played the solid 4.Nf3 against Alekhine's, and had great results.
