Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-10-08  just a kid: I like this game.Karpov closes everything so he attacks with leisure against yusupov who couldn't do anything.
Aug-10-08  Woody Wood Pusher: Wow this game is AMAZING! just LOOK at Karpov's Knight! compared to black's Bishop! I don't think the rook was worth it even then maybe LOl Karpov is a genius! The greatest!
Aug-11-08  Woody Wood Pusher: 11...e5 seems too optimistic to me and Karpov spears his Knight deep into black's territory after that.

25...Bc8 seems to be a big mistake because White's knight dominates after the exchange.

The difference between the rooks in this game is instructive. Black's are cramped and Karpov's have freedom to move and basically pick out where to open the second front!

38 Qxg4 further weakens blacks light squares for the final assault!

47 f6 is a master stroke, Karpov sacs the pawn to open a file for his rook assault!

Master Chess (32 bit 20 MHz) evaluates 50 R h5 at +4.2 so the advantage is crushing at this stage.

55...Rf8 and the black kingside seems to hold but...56 c5 crashes through on the other wing!

White's king is literally left unopposed in the centre and will eat black's whole queenside so he resigns. what a great game!

Dec-28-13  Howard: To say that this game was played in an unusual "atmosphere" would be an understatement.....

....as it turned out, Karpov had come down with a bad cold during the Tilburg event, and when it was time for him to play Yusupov, he asked that the game be played NOT in the tournament hall, but rather....in his own hotel room ! A lot of players questioned this request for the rather obvious reason that this would Karpov somewhat of a psychological advantage, but the request was granted.

Inside Chess magazine seriously questioned this accommodation, which obviously favored Karpov, plus Timman did likewise in his excellent book Power Play with Pieces, in which he covered this game.
