Mar-21-16  SpiritedReposte: <27. ...gxf1=N> A little flourish from Karpov as a queen promotion would have necessitated an immediate recapture as well.
Dec-25-17  Toribio3: Karpov is a solid player. He did not play fancy but simple maneuvering with deadly consequence. You can learn a lessons from his games.
