Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-24-13  Everett: With Karpov tangling up Speelman's R on the K-side and Ns on the Q-side, the Black side could get nothing going.
Jul-23-14  1971: ruthless beast
Apr-11-16  Howard: Speelman just alluded to this game in an article on Chessbase within the last couple days. He stated that he didn't really believe in the exchange sacrifice he made in this game, but then he couldn't see a way to refute it, so he went for it.

Karpov, nonetheless, found a way...but then Karpov was KARPOV back then.
