Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-03-04  refutor: i'm assuming this is a simul, but i'm pretty sure white didn't get the compensation he was hoping for when he played 3.b4. karpov just scooped the pawn and slowly tightened the screws
Oct-03-04  refutor: actually it may not have been a simul...there was an international tournament that year in munich including such players as dankert, balashov, huebner, spassky, ulf andersson, ludek pachman, michael stean, wolfgang unzicker, fridrik olafsson, helmut pfleger, karl robatsch and gudmundur sigurjonsson. it doesn't have karpov participating, but maybe it was an exhibition game afterwards or before?
Dec-21-05  slimstickey: why does white resign?
Dec-21-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <slimstickey> I guess the following:

If 54.Bxb2, then the passed f-pawn can advance to f4.

If 54.Qxb2, then 54...Qf1#.

May-24-10  morphy2000: Follows 54. ...f4! (with idea 55. ... f3 and 56. ...Bb5!). 55. Qg2 Qd3. 56. Ra1 Bd4 .
White rook is weaker than the bunch of black pawns with a bishop.
May-24-10  whiteshark: <refutor < it doesn't have karpov participating,>> This game has been played at round 5 of German Int. Championship in Munich.

<Karpov>, leading together with Spassky, withdrew after this round (he received some worrying news about his father's health situation) to travel back home to his father's deathbed.

After rd 5 <Adorjan> also abandonded the tournament, after a circulatory collapse.

Oct-28-14  tranquilsimplicity: 50.Nxh3 is a beautiful exchange sacrifice as Qxh3 aims at the f1 square when White's Queen is compelled to travel to the queenside and stop developments there!(Qf1#)
