Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-05  Bobwhoosta: A nice attempt at attacking ends with only the defender having attacking chances. It's amazing that there's all this bluster, and Karpov was never once in a hint of danger.
Mar-08-06  Helios727: So did black resign just because he is going to lose a pawn?
Mar-08-06  Resignation Trap: <Helios727> Mariotti annotated this game in the tournament book and he was highly critical of his own play. He gave 7...g5 two question marks, and suggested 7...a6 8.Be2 d5 9.d3 dxe4 10.dxe4 Qg6=. Also he gave another "?" to 14...c6 (14...Qg6) and another one to 17...Nc8 (17...0-0-0).

In the end, he is losing a pawn without compensation and his position remains bad. He could have dragged the game out a little, but he decided not to test the new World Champion's technique.

Feb-16-07  M.D. Wilson: Helios727: So did black resign just because he is going to lose a pawn?

He resigned because he was going to lose the game, eventually. When you have no adequate replies, resign.

Dec-08-07  Talis: User: Resignation Trap: ... and another one to 17...Nc8 (17...0-0-0).

Black cannot play 17...0-0-0 because they loose knight e7.
