  Everett: Really a great game by Karpov, from the subtle trapping of the knight, regaining the piece, to the amazingly methodical conversion of the rook and pawn ending.
Sep-28-12  vinidivici: smart ending from karpov here.

39.Ra3!, is a smart move. He brought the rook back to protect the passed pawn from the side. And for this move he would have a chance to protect his other passed pawns too. Just what we have looked 61.Re2! is a winning move rook would finally move to a2 and the king attacking the black rook.
