May-04-05  paladin at large: Karpov loses, or sacrifices, a pawn with 19. Bh4

Cool play by Portisch beginning with 23....Kf8 as he withstands Karpov's attack.

Oct-28-05  suenteus po 147: 32...Qe5 is one of those lovely quiet moves that just ends the game cold. White can't save his bishop because moving it drops the queen, and the file is cut off from rook support. As you wrote, <paladin at large>, great defense by Portisch.
Feb-04-06  Fast Gun: A rare win for Portisch against Karpov, this is only one of two wins that he managed against the former world champion in over 50+ games, the other one was in 1972 at San Antonio:
Aug-18-08  computer chess guy: 22. ♘xh4 ♕xh4 23. ♖e1 looks much better for White, vs. 22. ♕e4. 24. ♕h7 was a sac that didn't work: looks dangerous but wasn't actually sound.
