  offramp: Today's brilliant GotD title, "<Anatoly can Drink>", is based on the phrase, "No entry."

  HeMateMe: what was black thinking, sending his king out there to die, in the early middle game?

Aug-01-16  King Harvest: @ Der Deux... Outstanding video. Karpov and GM Henley going over the whole game. Lots of tactical notes including a discussion of the novelty and why black couldn't play Qxe7 in the opening. Karpov in pleasant mood. Thanks for posting that -- what a gem.
