Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-20-09  Everett: After some maneuvering in the opening, we have a Fiachetto Benoni structure. To me 19.Be4 is very strange at first, but the d5 pawn will be hard to attack by black and the bishop will be better off covering the light squares on the K-side, as well as be more offensive on the b1-h7 diagonal. The rest of the game is typical Karpov magic, with pieces returning to the home rank only to redistribute to another, more effective square. His best games are like one be regrouping maneuver.
Aug-08-17  Howard: Seirawan said in Inside Chess when annotating Karpov-Timman Rotterdam 1989 (a rout by Karpov) that Karpov knew how to "utilize the first rank better than any player---past or present".
Aug-08-17  RookFile: It's a great game. Portisch was a strong player too but you just get the feeling he never had a chance in this game.
