  harrylime: Embarrassing. Browne was always looking for 'cheap shots' against Karpov.. .
Aug-16-12  RookFile: Browne was a strong player in the 1980's, but Karpov was head and shoulders above him.

  harrylime: Lesson for Browne here was don't mess with the 'Carp' until you've fully developed your pieces ...

Browne's queens Knight finally moves to that super square d7 on move 28.. Three moves later the game has finished. lol
