Jun-03-07  Billy Ray Valentine: No kibitzing for this game?!
Sep-23-10  Everett: Another opposite colored bishop ending won by Karpov.

By move 21 he had stopped Kamsky's initiative and proceeded to slowly increase his advantage. 44..d4 breathes new life into Karpov's bishop via freeing d5.

In the end Karpov will defend one pawn with his bishop while the other will force white to part with his bishop

Sep-28-13  refutor: great technique by Karpov

Yeah, they seemed to happen more than usual between these two.

Dec-20-18  Nairaboi: d4 is a remarkable move by karpov.It frees the d5 square for the light squared bishop to attack white's fixed queenside pawns from and concomitantly creates a winning kingside pawn majority for black.
