  keypusher: After 14. a3 Nb6, Black seems to be developing good counterplay, but 15. b3! snuffs it out: 15...Qxa3 16. Nxb5 and 17. Ra1. Nunn then plays 15....Nfd7 to set up ...ed and ...Qxa3, so Karpov defends the a-pawn and keeps Black's counterplay under wraps.

Maybe Nunn should have tried 18...a6 19. a4 b4. After 19. Bf1, 19...b4 is met by 20. Nb5. So Nunn plays 19...c4, but 20. a4! cb 21. Nxb5 Qxd2 22. Rxd2 Rxc2 23. Rxc2 bc 24. a5! Nc8 25. Rc1 leaves him with a hopeless position.

Without doing anything the least bit flashy, Karpov beats a strong GM in 31 moves. A really impressive game.
