  Honza Cervenka: Excellent play of Beliavsky!
Jun-02-04  AdrianP: Dennis Monokroussos mentioned this game as an example of how things can go wrong playing for a queen-side minority attack in a Carlsbad-type position, namely you might get brutalised on the K-side. There are some nice crisp tactics at the end.
Jan-07-06  KingG: Pretty impressive to beat Karpov on the Black side of this variation. Karpov's score against everyone else is unbelievable.
Jan-07-06  Koster: Karpov really had a bad day tactically. One of Beliavsky's best tournaments, maybe the best?

  keypusher: As far as I know, this game marked the first time Karpov lost to a Soviet player in an international tournament since Korchnoi at Hastings in 1971.
Jan-16-07  sucaba: Well, he lost twice in the tourney on occasion of the 60th anniversary of the October Revolution: Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 and Karpov vs Beliavsky, 1977.
