Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-05  Everett: It's moves like 16.Bd2 that are soooo beyond me. He retreats stuff, moves up and back, has the patience of statue. Polgar was probably scratching her head after this one...
May-02-05  Everett: After move 20, Karpov's control over e6 (something before-hand I completely did not see coming), and future dominance of the e-file assures very strong pressure for white, especially because black has absolutely no play.

Wow, another masterpiece by Karpov, deafeating KID-specialist Polgar in a mere 28(!) moves.

Aug-29-08  ToTheDeath: Karpov's best year? Great positional play.
Apr-17-09  WhiteRook48: the KID should not be used by professional chess masters. They should play the ADULT (ha ha ha)
Oct-02-09  duplex: great game from Karpov,the master tactician..he eats Polgar alive in his prime..
Jun-12-10  xombie: <Everett> 16. Bd2 is also a jumping off move before playing Bc3. It all flows together very well because c5 is prepared with massive pressure against e5.

Note the tactical shot 25. h4!. If Qxg3 then Qxg3 Nxg3 Re7 pins B, grabs seventh.

May-01-19  PJs Studio: 24...Qxg3 seems like a better try.
