Feb-12-10  russian bunny: A masterpiece.
Nov-02-14  tstavernman: I would not really describe this game as a masterpiece. It is however a fine example of how Karpov often continued playing in lost positions and ended up getting the point in the end. 47...Nd7?? Kurajica lost the thread and missed the win. Here's what Barden said in his Evening Standard Chess Column: "They were playing a two-game mini-match where the former world champion Karpov had already lost the first game and was now a pawn down with a dubious position. “If Black (to play) had found the right move, I would have resigned” the Russian legend said later. Kurajica failed to see it, and Karpov won the game and later the match. Can you do better than Karpov’s opponent, and find Black’s winning move? Answer:
47...g5! wins decisive material after 48 fxg6 en passant Nxg6 49 Rg4 f5 or 48 Nxf6 Re1+ 49 Kf2 Re2+ and 50...gxf4."
Nov-02-14  Olavi: And the earlier quickplay game is also legendary: Kurajica vs Karpov, 1994
