The prince, as black, plays the Nimzowitsch-Indian and plays it in aggressive style. After 14...Ne4 he is clearly doing well:

By the time The Tsarevitch plays 21...Nef2, Karpov's position looks like a Spanish Marshall where white forgot all the right moves:

Very scary! But Karpov seems to always keep his head. Somewhere Yussupov makes a minor error. Dvoretsky thinks that 23...e4 was the culprit; 23...Nd3 he says was better.

24.Be2 would lose to 24...Nxh3+!:

But after 24.Bd1!, which allows the possible future defensive move Ra2, white draws.

A crucial game!
