Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-08-04  Lawrence: Very even until move 28, when Tolya started dominating. White's move 32 simply threw it away. (Junior 8)
Sep-06-05  Everett: So what does the chunk of metal say about alternatives?
Sep-29-08  Woody Wood Pusher: 29.Nb5!?, Bf4 30.Rh3,Ne4 was essential for further resistance (Karpov)

32.Qe1!! when there is a black queen sitting on the white King's's time to resign lol

Oct-08-12  Naniwazu: Karpov gives the correct variation as 19. Nbxd4 c5 20. bxc5 dxc5 21. Nxb5 Nxe4 22. Ne5 Nxe5 23. Bxe4 with a 'roughly equal game'. However Black has the zwischenzug 22...Nxf2! 23. Bh7+ Kxh7 24. Qxd7 Rxe5 25. Qxb7 Nxh3+ 26. gxh3 Rb8 27. Qf3 Rg5+ 28. Kh1 Rxb5 with a winning game for Black.
