Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-12-05  Landman: After 22.Nb5 and 24.Nb5, it looks like 26.Nb5 repeats the position for the third time. But the first position is not completely identical as Black still possesses castling rights.

I understand that Karpov actually made the draw-by-repetition claim, which was denied by arbiter Geurt Gijssen. The game was drawn at this point anyway, presumably by agreement. (Google is unclear on this point - anyone remember specifically?)

Sep-11-05  arvindn: Landman - I remember reading that "By now Miles had had his fun, and took the draw", which presumably meant it was drawn by agreement.
May-28-08  MichAdams: <The penalty of five minutes on the clock is a more recent ruling. After Karpov's clock had been advanced by five minutes he had only five minutes left for 14 moves, but Black decided, after some examination of the position, that it was too risky to deviate, so 1/2-1/2 (Clocks 2.25-1.17)> -- BCM
Apr-24-14  Howard: Andy Soltis briefly mentioned this game in one of his Chess Life columns many years ago, regarding the subject of incorrect draw claims.
Jan-25-20  welyab: Karpov claims draw with his third move Nb5. But the draw by repetion rule also considers the castling availability. At the first Karpov's Nb5, Anthony Miles still had queen side castling movement. With the second Karpov's Nb5, Anthony Miles had no more the castling available. So, the first position is different of the second by this reason. By a mistake, Karpov claims the draw after his thirt Nb5 move, but the position was repeated only twice.
Jan-25-20  ewan14: Miles plays the Benko Gambit against Karpov
