Mar-23-04  Lawrence: Karpov employs a nice bit of tactics, moves 22 to 25.
Dec-05-04  darook: Very nice tactics indeed!. Thanks Lawrence for pointing this game out.
Mar-13-05  Karpova: so black's mistake was 15...a5 leaving the a-pawn and the nb6 vulnerable? the nb6 seems badly placed anyway. what would have been satisfying for black? 15...re8 perhaps?
Jul-21-05  notyetagm: The <fork-overload trick> strikes again: 23 ... ♕d6 24 ♖e8+! ♖xe8 25 ♕xd6. This time the fork-overload trick is the sting in the tail of a nice tactical sequence by Karpov, moves 22-25, as indicated above.
Apr-17-09  WhiteRook48: hello, g4-pawn. I believe you're dead
May-30-15  tjipa: Somehow, the 'find similar games' feature here does not indicate the legendary Kasparov-Karpov game No.22 from 1986, when Karpov played 16...Re8.

  Stonehenge: According to this game was played in 1987.
Nov-09-17  Retireborn: <Stonehenge> Interesting; my data gives the CSKA v Trud match in December 1986, but I suppose it's possible that some of the games were played in January 1987.

Cannot get into olimpbase at the moment.

  Stonehenge: Thank you very much. Here it is:

Nov-09-17  Straclonoor: I confirm that this game was in December 1986. I have '64' and 'Chess (Riga)' magazines with it.

It was famouse game, because in previous official game Belyavsky beat Karpov and ex-champion would revenge.

Nov-09-17  Retireborn: <Straclonoor> Thanks.
