Kibitzer's Corner
May-07-06  LIFE Master AJ: A nice win by Karpov.

Keene sacks a Pawn, but Karpov defends magnificently. It seems that Black has White stymied, until Karpov finds a way to break through on the Queenside.

Mar-31-12  optimal play: An interesting game with enterprising attack from Keene and superb defence from Karpov, but what's the finish?

If Karpov continued with 45.Rxa6 that puts him three pawns up, but if Keene responded with 45...Qg5 then maybe 46.Ra1 Qg2+ 47.Qxg2 Rxg2 48.Ng1 Bf2 and is it possible to force a draw from there?

Or perhaps Karpov anticipated that line and so played 44.Ra1 with the intention of 45.Rg1 but either way, was it definitely a lost cause?

Apr-02-12  rilkefan: Per stockfish, 44.Rxa6 was better; 45.Rg1 is +1.7. I would play on as black, but not against Karpov.
