Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-06  Jim Bartle: Seirawan: "It was really frightening to watch Anatoly take apart a fellow GM so meticulously."
Apr-26-12  screwdriver: Where is the threat?
Apr-26-12  Shams: <screwdriver> White doubles on the f-file. With threats of Bd4-c5, g4-g5-g6 and e5-e6 it all looks like more than Black can handle. Apologies if this reply is simplistic but I just don't see a defense for Black.
Dec-04-18  Howard: White wins a pawn early on, but ends up lagging in development...

...but, then, when it's Karpov you're talking about, he could usually afford to be a couple tempos behind in development!

  Honza Cervenka: It was possible to play 31.Rcxc6 bxc6 32.Rb7+ Kc8 (32...Ke8 33.Ra7 +-) 33.Rxf7 with total dominance of white. Karpov's way of winning the game was slower but convincing too. Boa constrictor in action.
