  Everett: 21.b4! shows that it is not only black who will have the pawn breakthrough on the q-side. Afterwards, a controlled performance we've come to expect when studying Karpov's games.
May-14-11  bronkenstein: Lovely move , deserving a diagram . Typical Karpovian prophylaxis , making planned black breakthrough on Qflank impossible .

KarpovĀ“s boa constrictor style is made of such moves , majority of which remain silently sleeping in variations , giving us that Capablancish ˝ I could play that too˝ illusion.

Jun-09-15  A.T PhoneHome: And to think some actually are of the opinion that Karpov's chess is boring.

Heck, Karpov's chess in his twenties was simply ridiculously strong! The way he limits Sax's queenside play here is brilliant.

Jun-10-15  RookFile: I agree, there is no way Sax saw 21. b4! coming. I sure didn't when playing through this.
