Oct-01-06  ToTheDeath: It's interesting to note how Karpov attacks. He had numerous opportunities to play more sharply- e.g., 13. f5!?, and 21. Nxd5! (which wins immediately), but instead chose the moves which kept control of the position and did not sacrifice needlessly. This is how you win tournaments.

  tpstar: 27 ... Kd8 28. Nxe6+! wins the Queen (28 ... fxe6 29. Qxd7#), or 27 ... Ke7 28. Bc5+ Kd8 29. Nxe6+! again.
Dec-20-07  notyetagm: <tpstar: 27 ... Kd8 28. Nxe6+! wins the Queen (28 ... fxe6 29. Qxd7#), or 27 ... Ke7 28. Bc5+ Kd8 29. Nxe6+! again.>

Yes, the <LATERAL PIN> of the Black f7-pawn to the <LOOSE> Black d7-knight,-square by the White h5-queen is fatal.

Jan-17-09  morin: Black delayed a lot his castling. On 9 ... 0-0 or 10 ... 0-0 was OK.

13. f5 Nxd3 14. cxd3 gxf5 and black is lightly better.

17 ... Nc5 allows Black survive little bit longer.

26 ... Kd8 is better.

Jul-24-14  thom0909: Move 20: every black pawn is on a light square and he has no dark-squared bishop.
